Hey!
New member here! I have a build order for my 2020 GT500 and was wondering what happens next? Build date? VIN #? I know the plant is shut down and things will be backed up - but trying to get an idea of what the process is and the general time frame others have experienced?
Thanks!!
Welcome Tom!

The timeframe is anyone’s guess right now, but the process is:

Place an order with a dealer. Get your sales code and order code and call Ford Performance to confirm the order is legit: 800-367-3788. Your order status will be “unscheduled material hold” if it is legit. At some point, your order will be transitioned to “unscheduled clean” and a VIN will be assigned. Once a VIN is assigned, you’ll get a build week and eventually a build day, which is the day the car is scheduled to roll off the assembly line. It then might have a delay for stripes and rear swing/wing or CF wheels.

Put your car details in this thread and Earl will keep you updated. He gets better and more timely info than what is on the tracking site.

Congrats on your 2020 order!

A330 behind you ??
Aaaahhhhh... my avatar! I took that shot of an Airbus A300 back when I was a first officer on them for 10 years. I now fly left seat of the Boeing 767.

Glad you enjoyed the video. I enjoyed making it.

I believe they are only going to be shut down until Monday the 30th for cleaning this week and re scheduling employees for safety reasons.

That’s the first end-date for the shutdown I’ve seen... thanks for sharing! 🍻

Noah called me on Friday about mine and told me they plan to crank back up on the 30th and he is going to call me this coming Friday to confirm and give new date for my production since it was scheduled to start today.

The March 30 reopening date is TBD. That was the target date, but is dependent on the state of affairs on that date. The government is steering this ship.

Hi. Old member with a 2007 Black Red Stripe just ordered a 2020 with the last 4 digits of 2265. It has Recaro, Carbon I/P, Tech Package, Handling Package, cover, and Gas Guzzler Tax (LOL). The last info was P1 with a scheduled week on 4/13. I appreciate your updates! Thanks
