Yes, that's the factory single exhaust shipping tie-down brkts. Normally removed by trucking transport drivers and reused.
I say "single exhaust" because a factory "dual exhaust" stang like my 67 390 vert, they had to use a longer shipping tie-down to clear everything. I have a set on my 67.

It's another item factory or dealers were to remove and re-use.
Another such item to be removed at factory was the blower motor shield. This was temporarily installed on firewall over blower motor before engine was installed, then removed. But most often on a factory 390 stang, engine was a tight fit and factory left those blower motor shields in place. I have it still on my 67 390.

From the factory, no. But to hold an exhaust now, it’s fine.

Later today, tomorrow morning, I can take a picture of my 67 with the longer dual exhaust shipping brkts & dual exhaust.
The brkts weren't meant to be left on from shipping so run your dual exhaust to match your rear lower valance.

All 3 of my 66s still have the shipping tie downs, and I have used them as another spot to anchor the dual exhaust on 2 so far. Works great.

The shop manual shows the exhaust pipes having their own dedicated hangers. Otherwise they wouldn't be able to use the tie downs to you know, tie down the car while they were shipping it to the dealers.

Full disclosure: I have a six cylinder so I don't know what a dual exhaust looks like under the car in real life. :)

Right, if your car came from the factory with dual exhaust, that above reference works. If not, you wont have the additional support on the floor pans or in the passenger side rear frame rail.
