Fox Mustangs Rare or Odd?

I have never seen a Mexican built Fox Mustang. Are there any in the U.S.?

I have also never seen a 2.8 V6 Fox Mustang. How many were produced and has anyone actually ever seen one?

1967 Mustang Coupe 200/C4
2017 Mustang EB Premium

I don't remember the V6, but my neighbor had one with a straight six in it.
It might have been a 1980.

I've never seen a 2.8 in one but the Mustang II's and 1970's Capris had those. Also some Rangers and the earliest Aerostars. I don't recall it being a Fox engine option but I can verify it one way or the other after work.

I worked at a Ford dealer back then when they were new, the 2.8 V6 was
a engine option for the first half of the 79 model year then they switched
to the I-6 200cid 3.3 for the second half of the 79 model year.
The I-6 continued to be used in 80 & 81 maybe 82 as well.
