Rarity by options break down and values?

On what day in 1966 did the secret Cougar marketing program begin? April 1st, April Fools day. On what day in 1968 did the Cobra Jet 428 become available in the Cougar April 1st April Fools day. Is there a message in there somewhere? This is the place to find out.

Rarity by options break down and values?

It's time for me to ask again, if anyone has the "other" 1967 Cougar XR7, that is glacier blue, with a red interior, and a black vinyl top.
I know that just because they didn't make a lot of something ,doesn't make it more valuable, but I'm curious how many other "limited" combinations there are, say less than ten of something?
I did see an early AC Cobra, 289 car, that had this same blue and red color scheme. I don't know that I would have picked it, but it looked good on the Cobra.

According to my Marti report mine is 1 of 2 with these paint and trim codes, Nordic Blue, Parchment vinyl roof, Parchment interior with red appointments. Never got a definitive answer to what all was "red appointments".

I believe you can find the answers to all paint color and interior color combinations produced at the factory from Kevin Marti's book Cougar By the Numbers.

Thanks Berns68, I wonder what it is about blue cars, and odd colors?

Were Mercury Glacier Blue and Ford Brittany Blue the same color or is there a difference if you see them side by side?

Both are the same for 1967, color code Q. Lincoln may have named it Huron Blue Metallica.
