Is there any particular reason (relating to the sprung mass) for having this kind of setup?

I am yet to see a wishbone suspension with the shocks on the UCA.

The late 60s to early 70s mustangs has shocks and springs on the upper control arms. enter image description here

Normally They are installed on the lower control arm to save space. By fitting them between the control arms the towers don't have to be as tall or the shock/spring could be mounted directly to the frame.
