Confirming that Venezuela did make US Fords in late 60s through to at least mid 70s, but no info on which models and when.

The infos are in German, but I'll translate it:

"[...] Ford opened a new plant in Valencia (Venezuela) on 27th October 1962. 553 workers built 69 cars during the first year. Starting with the Falcon, followed by Galaxie, LTD, Fairlane and Mustang later on. In 1963, 4716 Fords were built. Later models built there were:

Ford Bronco
Ford Cortina
Ford Escort
Ford Explorer
Ford F-150
Ford Festiva
Ford Fiesta
Ford Landau
Ford Laser
Ford Maverick
Ford Ranger
Ford Sierra,

as well as several trucks:

Ford Cargo
Ford F-350
Ford F-7000
Ford F-8000

Production reached a peak in 1978 with 63,767 units built. In 1997, they celebrated the 1,000,000th Ford produced in Venezuela. Today, about 1,700 employees build the Ford Explorer there."
