Dual exhaust cars were all K and S code.
It was once believed and was even literature printed that the 1967 GT option included low restriction dual exhaust. The 289 4V A code and 289 2V C code were both available with GT option but did not necessarily receive the dual trumpet thus cut out valance. 67 cars are crazy oddities

Yes you are correct - single on the A code. ;)

Rare to see an A code 67 GT with single exhaust since most everyone adds the duals!

I couldn't pick a better group of Mustang fans...! Yes... the funny Lime Gold GT confused me with its lack of pop open gas cap and chrome tips and cut-out valance. I had to get my Mustang books out on this one. I figure the car has probably had a dual exhaust at some point in it's life but still looks to have the original rear valance. The tips in the trunk could have come from a different car.

When I looked at it after a few weeks, I discovered it had lots of originality and mods too. Tunnel ram and get this.. two QUADRAJETS! What...? Who puts Quadrajets on a tunnel ram??? Had headers and glasspack header mufflers and the original Ford shifter on the Toploader! The car has always been in the Kansas City area and the second owner who has his name on my 1974 title (along with his moms..) is who built the engine but never cut the hood for the carbs.

Sure not too many base A code equipped 67 GT cars I have seen like this one. Full wheel covers? What the heck is it with all the interior options for a order for dealer stock?? I love this stuff and I know you guys and gals do too! More to come...

In my experience it seems easier to find a 67 GT or GTA 390 Fastback than an A or C code.

The Eleanor and Bullitt thing has put a good size dent in the remaining population of average restorable Fastbacks over the last couple of decades.

I have been working on a fence so the GT has gotten the back seat. However, I DID get the 289 to rotate a small amount so that is good news. Hopefully I can use it since it appears to be the original block so far. I also poked around in the interior.. found holes for mounting the shoulder harnesses in the headliner near the chrome coat hooks. Plus there are velcro pads on the headliner centered front to rear above the door glass on each side I suppose to hold the belts up when not in use? I have TWO lap belts on the drivers seat position but only one on passenger side. Have a little homework to do completing the full set of belts. Pics coming soon..
