Most Australian state rego departments call any 2 door car a "coupe". Ford never called a Mustang a coupe until 1974, they were hardtops until then.

I have the same issue with 69/70 mustangs being called sports roof and not fastbacks any more, to me it will always be a fastback.

They look nice John. OK, Hijack time. One for the Aficionado's to answer with respect to side exit pipes. I have heard it said that the exhaust pipes must exit behind the rear axle (in Australia). I was discussing this with a Kiwi mate of mine and he felt that in NZ, the exit must be behind the rearmost (opening) side window. Therefore he suggested he could exploit this loophole on his 67 Camaro. If this was the rule in NZ, then a 65 Mustang Hardtop would present a different scenario than a 65 Hardtop.
It would be interesting to know the Australian rules on this, if for nothing else it may be something I can tell my (Holden Loving) son, so he gets off my case about side exit pipes when it comes to replacing my rusty dual system.

My understanding is that for NSW, the pipes have to exit 30cm from the rearmost opening window.

I have seen the 30cm and I have also seen the 50cm for NSW but I have never seen it in official documents for any state. So for the exercise chasing down NSW guidelines (which was not as easy as it should have been). It states;

"The outlet of an exhaust system must be rearwards of any passenger side entry door or opening window. If any part of the exhaust system, including the outlet pipe, extends beyond the profile of the body (other than on the underside), it must be shielded. Exhaust outlets must also meet the requirements of ADR 42/… where applicable. Vehicles manufactured after June 1988 must not have the exhaust exiting to the left of the vehicle."

So side exhausts are perfectly legal in NSW as they refer to the National codes. If you read other areas it of what needs an engineers certificate it is implies any non-standard exhaust requires a certificate.

I would imagine that you may have to fight the authorities but you should be fine.

National Codes for Light Vehicle modifications (which all states have/should aligned to).

Here is the link from NSW RTA to these standards as apply to NSW,

www.rms.nsw.gov.au/roa...ndard.html

Here is the National Guidelines;

Guidelines (All):
infrastructure.gov.au/..._ncop.aspx

Engine Guideline (inc exhaust);
infrastructure.gov.au/...011_v3.pdf


Note: Not sure if these links should be added to a page in the tech section. Makes it easier to find.

That would say to me that not all side pipes are legal. It would have to be behind the rear quarter windows on a coupe (sorry, hardtop Mr. Green ).

The other issue is - you can be defected whether you are legal or not if the cop thinks he's right. Then you have to go through the process of having the defect lifted.
In that instance, you're guilty until proven innocent - like all traffic fines.

Not worth the hassle for side exit pipes IMO.
