Bill Wilson with details on Ford’s two-seater Mustang Mach II, circa 1968:
Never ones to give up easy, the creative forces at Ford gave it one more shot in 1967 with the Mustang Mach II… The Mach II should have made it to production. It had everything going for it, including great looks, exceptional stability and speed. But, once again, it was not to be. Some have conjectured that part of the reason was that the public linked the mid-engine configuration with the notorious Corvair… With no Ford two-seater, the Corvette went on to become America’s premier two-seat sports car, a title it retains to this day.
Unlike the Mustang for Ford, the Corvette isn’t exactly a big money-maker for GM.
