I'm adding dual exhaust to my 1973 Torino.
I picked up the driver's side bracket from an unknown year.
But it looks MUCH different than the passenger side.
Are the brackets from a factory dual exhaust the same, other than opposite construction (since they are facing opposite direction)?  Or are they way different looking?

Thanks.

Do you have pics? Or as Ford part number I can check?  I believe they should be basically the same.

I don't have the part number, but I have pictures of my passenger side rear bracket.
This style is what I am looking for.
I drilled out the rivets, took apart, soaked in white vinegar for a few days, and then took a wire brush to it.  Then I spray painted it.
For the rubber, I got some scrap conveyor belt rubber.  I used a stainless steel "button-head" bolt and nut to mount at the rivet holes.
I need another one, as I am installing dual exhaust.
