1967 Options release dates?

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.

Sounds like a simple question but September 6th of 1967 the UAW went on strike. The plants had started to build '68 models but there were still some '67s that were waiting to be completed (failed inspection of some sort that had to be fixed). The strike did not end until October 22nd. Exactly when Ford chose to record those vehicles as being completed would be something only Kevin Marti could tell us.
