Did a 1969 Mach 1 351 2V have an option for dual exhaust?

Also, can anyone point me to the best reference to all possible options that could be purchased for 69 Mach 1's

The 351 2v would have been a single exhaust. FastE

understood, however, could a person have ordered a 2V with dual exhaust at that time? Thanks

Ford never offered a dual exhaust option on any from the factory.You never know what some dealers might have done though. FastE :peeping:

I believe that Dual exhaust was standard equipment on all 69 Mach I's regardless of 2v or 4v carbs.

Best reference ? 1969 Ford Mustang Sales brochure. Next best Mustang Recognition Guide.

Dual exhaust was not a factory option on a 2v Mach 1. That is why they don't have the rear valance with the dual cutout. The original owner could have had the dealer install it, but probably would have been cheaper to just get at 4V Mach at that point.

Nope. not an option on 2V. The 4V had higher compression ratio, 4V intake and carb, dual exhaust with dual cutout rear valance.
IMO they all should have come with dual, and mine now does. :winkgrin:

My bad. Must be a lot of them out there that were converted to duals. Every pic I have of an H-code Mach I has dual exhaust, but no DE on their buck tags. Every pic I have of an M-code has dual exhaust and a DE on the buck tag.

The previous posters are correct. the H-code Mach would have had a single exhaust. The M, S, Q, and R codes came with duals.

FYI, the 1969 sales brochure mentions on page 4 "Mach 1 also has GT-type equipment like dual exhausts with the four larger engines". Then on page 14 it says "You'll get throaty dual exhausts and quad outlets with the four larger engines".
