Equa-Flow Champion Sound 1938 Vintage Men’s T-Shirt




Sandy Belond was a Southern California hot rodder and one of the first dry lakes racers to go over 100 mph. He opened Sandy’s Muffler Shop in 1938 and aside from traditional exhaust work, Sandy began designing and building custom headers and exhaust systems that quickly became a popular on the local hot rod scene. After a short stint in the Marines towards the end of the war, Sandy was ready to get back to work and founded Southern California Muffler Service. Aside from continuing his custom work, Sandy developed his Equa-Flow line of off the rack exhaust systems. This line revolutionized the industry by utilizing the first ever jigs for exhaust systems that ensured each model was true and accurate to the vehicle it was designed for. The big three took notice of the system’s popularity, and before too long, they were sending Sandy new models before they even hit the lot to be fitted for Equa-Flow exhaust systems. By 1953, there were more than 2,000 Equa-Flow dealers and the line was offered by major dealerships as an OEM upgrade on new vehicles for drivers who wanted a few more horsepower and that ‘champion sound’ the Equa-Flow systems were known for.


Like all our designs, this one is treated with our signature ‘relic-ing’ process which includes our own secret recipe of hand-painted chipping, cracking, fading, and just the right touch of yellowing to ensure that it looks the part of a true vintage imprint.** We lay these works of art down on premium Bella+Canvas 3001 Unisex Jersey Short Sleeve Tees, one of the softest, best-wearing t-shirts available today, via state of the art direct to garment (DTG) printing which allows us to create a vintage effect that simply can’t be accomplished with other printing methods.

Not sure what size is your best fit? We recommend taking one of your current t-shirts, laying it flat and measuring it. The measurements in the chart below are taken with the shirt laying on a flat surface. To get the length, measure from the high shoulder point down to the bottom of the shirt. To get the width, measure approximately 1-inch below the armhole, across the chest, from seam to seam. While our tees are all made using premium, pre-shrunk, ring-spun cotton, there can be some shrinkage depending on your personal wash and dry cycles. With that said, if you’re on the fence, we always suggest going up a size.
