OK, so what am i missing, I ordered my CFTP 7 MONTHS AGO, July 19 2019, put a hefty deposit down, three days ago I’m told by Noah that production has been suspended until March because tires cracking in freezing weather and “Lou” orders one today and it’s being shipped.... WTF? I place my order same day as another guy in Nashville- he’s had his since January 13.....
I’m loosing faith in my fellow mankind, or at least FORD MOTOR Corporation.....
Can anyone give me a logical explanation
Not sure this helps, but I ordered a non-CFTP car on July 15th and still don’t have a VIN. The wait is very, very difficult.
I totally get it about the frustration over the wait. Take comfort in there are many across the forums and Facebook in the same boat. It all comes down to the regional reps. These cars are not built in order placed sequence. The regional reps move cars up/down in the list. How or why it’s done is a mystery. The CFTP cars have the biggest delay since they are affected by 2 forces... Ford is throttling them (slowly) through production due to slow availability of the CF bits as well as limited slots at Penske to get the cars modded and (painted) striped. The other force is the shutdown that affected the CFTP cars due to the SC2 tires.

Yes it is, let’s hope we get them SOON !!! I guess I should Be more optimistic, however, as you mentioned the wait is difficult when I’m seeing them pop up all over the inter web - which baffles me why there are CFTP popping up out there, one other thing i have Noticed and I’m guessing snoopy can probably answer this, I’m seeing on this forum some were able to get carbon cluster/instrument panel? Black painted roof? And can anyone tell me if i got The over the top painted stripes does that mean I’ll have the two stripes on the sides as well? I’m going to attach my order sheet with this post (if I’m smart enough) oh and one more last thing I DID NOT PAY MSRP 🤬
20k over hoping that would mean i would Get it sooner than later, silly me

I’d call $20k to $30k the normal ADM on the CFTP cars. I’ve seen a little lower (very rarely) and I’ve seen much higher. ADMs do not affect speed of delivery.

As for the painted OTT stripes, you cannot get the side stripes with that option. Side stripes are vinyl only and Ford won’t mix vinyl and paint.

CF dash is including with the CFTP and is an option for the other cars. I have it on my base car... it’s nice.

The painted black roof is available as an option on any of the cars.

Hope that helps.

If I recall correctly, you can submit changes while still in unscheduled-material hold. Once you get a VIN, you are locked. Call your dealer tomorrow to have them submit the change. Then call FP to have them confirm the update.

I have not seen anything to the contrary. I don’t think the numbers have changed from the initial announcement.

Well... just talked to my dealership and was told “nope, don’t see where we can add a painted black roof” so I’ve put in a call to Noah and now waiting on a return call

If your car is still Unscheduled, then you can change anything you want to change.
Here is the order guide, show it to your dealer and ask him why the painted roof can't be added to your order. Nothing in the order guide exempts the painted roof when you choose the CFTP option.

Painted Black Roof
Note: Not available with Shadow Black (G1)
Option Code: 94B

ATTENTION:

Ford just added over 400 new VINS today. Check with your dealer and see if yours is one of them.
Good luck

Thanks for asking, I got mine on 01/16 and it is scheduled for 02/25. Hopefully I will be driving that puppy in the middle of March.
