Some where some one is driving their collector car for the last time but they don't know it . Drive your car every time like it could be the last memory of it .

  I agree with Coralsnake.  Certainly has the correct time frame for the Mach2.  Had to be a great job working in the styling studio on stuff like that.

New to me also - thanks for posting.

Anybody recognize where the photos were taken?

Bumper on that first pic definitely reminded me of the Mach 2

Boy, carry those flying buttresses back another 12-18 inches and you have a Ferrari 308 GTB 10 years ahead of the Italians.

The Mach II is built on one of the bare Cobra chassis that Ford took from Shelby.

Frank Reisner's company Intermeccanica had the Griffith/Omega/Italia.....I believe the car was started in 1965 and debuted in NY 1966. Sure looks like many of the styling cues of the Mach 2 were taken from Intermeccanica
