As stated, 2 people could sit in the front, and if the rear seat were folded up – 2 more could sit in back. The "2+2" designation had nothing to do with the GT package other than the "Mustang 2+2" emblems were deleted in favor of the GT badges. Those fastbacks were technically 2+2s as well.
I've heard that because the fold-down rear seat became an option after 1966, the 2+2 designation no longer applied. Makes sense to me.

Hello.It has to do with the seating configuration of a 'sports car'.They are typically two seaters.The earliest cars that I've heard of with that 2+2 thing were some Ferraris.It means That the car is functionally a two seater,but if you have to you can shoe-horn two kids or very,very short-legged adults into the back.
