That exhaust is worth some good money. If you want to restore it as a 69, I would sell the exhaust, acquire a 69-70 exhaust which are more available.

It's better to remain silent and be considered a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.

I certainly may be wrong but didn't the early production 69 dt1 have the 68 style pipe w/short stinger? Thought I read that on old site few years ago. I have DT1-155XX that has same exhaust as this DT1-B but can't confirm it wasn't changed over the years. Curious what first 2 numbers are in VIN? Enjoying this conversation. :Buds
Thanks

Found it. Comments from our #1 Authority on early DT1's. Go to #8 in thread.
Hard to keep up with all the early production changes.
Thanks
