There is generally some room to move underneath older trucks, but the '53 is running a little tight below decks. The Roadster Shop built its Stage III chassis to bring the truck lower to the ground without the use of air suspension by means of raising up the crossmembers and suspension. Couple that with the fact that the 509hp big-block Chevy from Bill Mitchell demands a certain amount of space, and pretty soon there isn't much room for exhaust. But never fear-the Roadster Shop was still able to make a custom 3-inch stainless system that starts with Sanderson Big Tube headers and incorporates the requisite Flowmaster 40 Series mufflers.
