Exhaust Crack

Greeting All!

I have a beautiful 1976 300d. The exhaust cracked and broke off and now people can hear me coming from 5 miles away. Any ideas on how to fix her up without spending to much? I have a buddy with a welder who is also pretty experienced with it. I was thinking of getting some pipe with a larger diameter and welding it over the break. Any one know of any good parts dealers if that does not work? Thanks everyone for your time and help.

Rob and Gloria

You can scab a piece on, but it may not last long.

Is the crack in the manifold? It's difficult to see from the picture... If the issue is in the pipe, I'd suggest replacing the whole section.
