One suggestion for dual exhausts would be rams horns.  Available aftermarket and I see used originals for sale here and there.  Just make sure you get th ones for a Ford Y Block.  The ones for the Lincoln engine are different and will not bolt up.

The rear outlet manifolds cause interference with the steering column on the left side.  What I did on my '53 with a 312 was to use a right hand manifold on the left side, which pointed the outlet forward and downward, where it is easy to make up an exhaust pipe from the manifold to the muffler.
