1968 289 / Why

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.

The rarest Mustang of all in 1968 wasn't a Shelby or a Cobra Jet. It was the one and only 302 2V 4 speed Hardtop produced... A total of three Mustangs were built with the 302 2V F code engine.
