Can someone please explain what the difference is between a fb and a fb 2+2? are there combinations(ie. fb gt, fb gt 2+2, k code fb, kcode fb 2+2, k code fb gt, k code fb gt 2+2)?

A fastback and 2+2 are the same. No such designation as a fastback 2+2.

"2+2" literally means two passengers in the front seats with two small seats in the back probably not large enough for adults.

65-66 fastbacks are called '2+2's'
67-68 fastbacks are called 'fastbacks'

Yes there are combinations.

The 'k' is an engine code. hipo 289 4v 271hp. No more 'k' codes after '67

GT is a trim and handling package. No more GT's after '69

Fastbacks became 'sportroof' than 'hatchback'.

Doug67 is correct. To continue answering your question, the 2+2 designation was used in 65/66 (there were no 64/12 2+2's) and wasn't used afterwards. You won't see a 2+2 badge after 66.

The "K" code is the engine code for a 289 HiPo. A "K" code could be ordered in a coupe, fastback (2+2), or convertible.

The GT package, only offered after about the first year of production (i.e., 64 1/2, early 65's can't be "true" GT cars), was only available with the "A" code 289 4V and the "K" code 289 4V HiPo. The GT package could be ordered on a coupe, FB (2+2) or convertible.

I was always told that it is not 2x2 unless it has the fold down rear seat. For instance, my 65fb is a 2x2 because it has the fold down seat...but my old 67fb is not because it had a stationary rear seat.

In 66 if you had a Fastback with the GT package, there is not the Mustang 2+2 script on the car. The script will just read Mustang.
