" Comes with books records also a letter from Ford saying that the car is a high country special specially made for Denver Colorado. "

Does Ford still provide such a letter? Was it only limited to HCS? Just curious because I thought the only official source was the Marti report. Thanks.

Ford used to provide what was called a 999 report. It was kind of like the basic Marti report. It was free but I've heard that several years ago they started charging for it. I'm not sure if they currently offer it, because I haven't purchased a "new to me" car in many years. You could contact Ford Customer Service to find out if you're interested in one.
