This 60's Mach 2 concept certainly looks more stylish and well thought through than the current C8 corvette, which from a design perspective is just a horrible looking car.
I recall seeing that car on display with my father at COBO hall during their annual car show there. It was red. My father later took me to Kar Kraft in Detroit where I saw it again. Many years later he took me to Kar Kraft in Livonia Michigan where I saw a 69/70 mid engine mustang which I later found out was a mid engine Boss Mustang and only one was produced and tested before it DISAPEARED somewhere. I DON'T HAVE IT!!!
I've never seen these photos of the Mach 2.
Looks like the love child of a GT40 and a Lotus Europa. The last photo is not bad looking, it may have been an interesting concept.
