Can anyone tell me the purpose of the flipper type valve behind the muffler on my j 408?

These cars had an exhaust bypass that allowed for an open exhaust on cross country runs but by turning a lever on the floor mounted on the drivers side near the edge of the seat,it could be made quiet for town use.
These cars are obnoxious when blasting off under hard acceleration and in some areas,the driver can be fined for doing it.

Is J408 one of the cars Ted Billings did? I might have worked on it as a kid.

If you can post a picture of it in its 1970s colors I can see what I have. I was only helping on the last cars as I didn't start working for Ted until I was 15. Of course, by help I mean pushing, cleaning, etc.

im not very good at this I would need help putting pictures up, when my wife gets back next week I'll have her do it, but the colors in 1973 were orange like body and maroon fenders I believe the owner at that time was Leo Gephart
