1957 Giulietta Spider Veloce Exhaust

I received a new rear exhaust for my '57 Veloce Spider from Centerline last week.
The vehicle has a mounting bracket close to the fuel tank (for mount to right side of muffler) but new muffler bracket is on the opposite (left) side.
Page 144 in Parts Book show Veloce P/N 1365.90.739 with bracket on right side.
(Bracket on forward muffler is in the correct vicinity of car bracket)
Hangers also look to be different between Normale and Veloce. Remnant of original hanger (1365.90.406) was still on the car (see picture)

Has anyone run across this and what is the best solution?

Thankful for any expert advice.

I have '57 Spider Veloce... 32 years ago I changed that bracket to fit as you wish it to be, Cut the bracket off on the front left side and reweld it to the rear right side (aligned) toward the rear. I think that is just one of those things to accept with what is out there in parts.

Unfortunately that's good advice from Rick.I just want to add that when fitting the exhaust system,mount it with as little or no stress as possible,anywhere.If the engine ever has to come out,mark any and all mounts so when refitting,you get it,the transmission,drive line,"and exhaust"in the same place it originally was.Any of these things out of line or under stress can and will cause driveline vibration,clunks,aggravation,and ulcers.Just my 2 cents

Never so simple.....

I checked my '64 Spyder exhaust....
Rear muffler is the same as yours. Mounts the same as original system.
Then I checked the other side.
Chassis has mounts for a support on either side of the muffler !
Maybe there was more than one supplier from new or you were sent a system for a Giulia 1600.

I think all suppliers have the same item judging from the pictures on the various websites. Some modifications are to be expected according to the comments.
Cars newer than mine probably had different brackets for mounting the system.
Car is going to muffler shop tomorrow to modify and fit the new system. Will post pics when done.
