Default 1972 TA original exhaust tips?

Noticed a part number on the chrome exhaust tips on my 1972 TA and wondering if they could be original or GM service replacements? Part number reads GM481525FT. The number is on the outside of the driver side tip and the inside of the passenger side tip. Any info is appreciated, thanks, Tom

NS 481525 is what is stamped on the necked down ends of the NOS tips I bought late 80's new through local dealer. Somewhere, boxed up, in the shop have the original drivers side tip off my late '72 build's original exhaust. Will keep an eye out for it.

I have come to understand that the ones stamped with the part number on the outside are service replacements.

1970 Formula 400
Carousel Red on black (std) interior
1:286 W66/L78/M13 or 1:301 W66/M13
(likely one of very few '70 M13 Formulas still existing)

1991 Grand Am: 14.4 @ 93.7mph (DA corrected) (retired DD, stock appearing)
2009 Cobalt SS: 13.9 @ 103mph (current DD; makes something north of 300hp & 350ft/lbs)
