Default DUAL QUADS

I Have been told that from 1965-1972, you could order a dual quad set up
when ordering a new mustang. And that it was a dealer installed option.
Anyone familiar with this ? Any idea what the option code was ?
Thanks

i don't remember dual quads on a small block, the 63 and 4 427 galaxies had them, but you could get 3 2 barrels. that set up might be around 2500.00 these days.

There were all sorts of over-the-counter intake setups. From a simple 4V intake for conversion from 2V, to some pretty wild stuff.

There was no "option code" for these parts, since they were not options. The part numbers, however, are well documented, and naturally, dealers could be paid to install this equipment.

IMHO, outside of the visual cool the dual 4V setup would provide, all else is a negative. Hard to find small enough carbs and very expensive when located. Performance gains could be achieved easier and cheaper with the proper single carb or a 3X2 setup such as was once offered by Pony Carbs. Not to say the 3X2 is cheap, but it certainly provides awesome power with good economy and great eye appeal.
Once had the opportunity to chat with a fellow vintage racer who was running a 67 Trans Am Mustang with a Boss 302 motor and 2X4 carbs. He admitted that the car was significantly faster and more responsive with a single 4V carb. Just sayin'
Best,
Al

I'm thinking that I should have went with a single carb, for my daily driver, as well. No disputing the cool factor...but the drivability, maintenance and price is definitely easier with a single carb than with a dual set up.
