I’m saying there isn’t a four door car on the planet that looks better than the S197, let alone the Mustang II, simply based on the fact that the proportions are thrown off by two additional doors. When has anyone ever said “It would look better if they turned it into a four door sedan?”

The appearances of the S197 concept and production car were universally praised when they were released and the production car is widely considered to be the best looking Mustang since 1969.

It’s fine if you don’t agree, but you are literally the first person I have encountered in 19 years to argue otherwise.
Ok now I know you're joking. Out of all the Mustangs available, you go from one of the worst to THE worst possible choice. The Mustang 2? Come on, man. I mean looks are subjective, but some things are just universally known.

There's COUNTLESS sedans (and even wagons) that look better than the S197. I don't think a single person I've ever met in my life would agree with you.

Allow me to be the second!

Yeah, that car looks like it's in the middle of an identity crisis and doesn't know what it wants to be when it grows up. Sorry.

I concur, that generation of Mustang was ugly. It looks like trash even on a no-credit-needed used car lot.
Lol, that's pretty accurate for down here as well. Most S197's I see on the street look completely shot. When they first came out I do recall them being well received overall, but for me they aged very quickly and not well at all. I wouldn't say I'm a fan of the S197 II either, but the '10-14 is definitely an improvement over the former.

Umm getting back on topic I saw this one on facebook.

I remember the S550 being compared to the Accord when it was first released.

That's not a particularly flattering angle of the Z. Who looks at a car like that anyway, unless they're sitting on a bucket and detailing it?

Yeah, but that black bar on the Mustang goes all the way back to 1969.
As does the 240Z. Released in 1969 as a 70 model year. And, a Google image search is showing about half of the '69 mustangs are body colored and not black.

That said, the point is that it's a heritage cue from both makes for a similar length of time. Also, I don't think a Z has ever been mistaken for a Mustang, or vice versa.

I think it was only on the Mach 1?
