24: 1974 Ford Gran Torino Elite
The 1974 Gran Torino Elite was a failure from the gate, with the only reason for the car’s existence being the Thunderbird’s hefty price tag. Ford needing an affordable personal luxury coupe quickly put the Gran Torino Elite together. However, consumers were not blind to what was being done to them and the car was a flop (via Hemmings).
On top of questionable sales numbers, the exterior design of the car was downright hideous to look at. You couldn’t justify the awkward shapes and lines even if you tried to, and this was a problem with many cars during this generation.
