Side pipes made their inaugural appearance in the 1965 Corvette. They included mufflers that in reality did little muffling and were clothed in handsome bright aluminum heat shields which, in addition to looking good, prevented the occupants from burning their legs as the exited the car. They were also very loud and so were labeled as "off road" probably to deal with whatever noise regulations that might appear. Some body modifications were required for installation.
