We had a custom fully mandrel bent stainless exhaust done on our '69 SS Convertible from headers back for like $265 (not including the hooker mufflers). A good exhaust shop that does mandrel bending will easily be able to bend those two short section of pipes and attach them and have them look even, etc.. I know the shop we go to (I have used him for ever vehicle I have owned and my Dad has since he was younger) has great reasonable prices.. I guess I feel bad for people paying $200 to do something like this. In my opinion from all the exhaust work I have had done on over half a dozen vehicles, I feel you should be able to have this muffler delete and striaght pipe done at a shop for no more than $100.

So yes, if I had to personally spend $200 to have this done, I would go with 2 mufflers for that price to give it a more refined sound, but since it is a job that should be able to be done for $100, it is definately an inexpensive way to make the car sound a bit better.
Yeah I just talked to my guy here and he said he could do it for like 40 or 50 bucks
