I just bought a Mustang fastback 1965 model and I noticed that it has an emblem that says "mustang 2+2" what does that mean? Is it a speciality car?

As others have said, it stands for the seating. 2 in the front + 2 in the back. That equals 2+2. Not really for people, unless they are small but it made the insurance companies happy and they reduced the insurance rates because it was not a 2 seat sports car.

it's really for insurance purpose during that time. Sports cars were considered 2 seaters like your vettes among others. 2+2 meant 2 seats in the front and 2 in the rear. Strong car but not classified as a sports.

Not really.

It is more of a 'legal' term for a two door coupe with a bench back seat.

It primarily holds two normal sized adults in the front seats. The two people who would fit in the back would have to be children or small people in order to fit comfortably.

The reason is to claim a status for the model in question. A two seat sports car would be more expensive to insure. Thus the reason for a 'passenger' space allowing a wider range of application.

Many cars today still come in under the 2+2 classification.
