There is a potential fly in the ointment, the railroad and trucking companies. I have been monitoring the movement of GT500's at Flat Rock that have been released or received for shipment. There have been no shipments since the middle of March. I am thinking that this is just the very tip of the iceberg. If I am right, there are a lot of Mustangs waiting to be shipped. Evidently shipping new cars was not considered essential business. It may take some time to clear the log jam.
Has anyone seen any dates for the lock down to lifted on the railroads and trucking companies, especially in MI?

If my car is at Penske waiting for painted stripes will it be shipped from Penske or does it go back to flat rock? How do you find a new delivery date? My dealer hasn’t been able to find any new dates my original delivery date was April 14. On Ford.com when I enter my VIN the delivery date still shows April 14

Go to the Ford Performance website during the week... a chat function pops into the right side of the screen. They will give you the latest info, but they might only have a build date, which yours has come and gone. The date is when the car rolls off the assembly line. The Penske stop happens after the build date if I remember correctly. I’m pretty sure the car goes back to the plant afterwards and gets loaded on a rail car from there. Earl May have more details on all of this.

The car will be returned to the plant, where it will be released for shipment.
As far as delivery dates go, there is no way of calculating that until the car is actually moving down the track or the road. If you plan to rely on the ETA before then, it will drive you nuts.

I received my VIN on March 27th. I still show in processing on the Ford website.
Share your VIN here or send it VIA pm to @Snoopy49. Earl will keep you updated on your status, better than what you’ll find on the Ford site.

Hi Quentin
Welcome to FordGT500.com and the list.
Do you have the scheduled build day?

June 1st was the last I heard from the dealer. I'm not even sure he was certain on the 1st. June may have been as specific as he could be.

I just found out it is July 16th. Congratulations. Check post #1 and look for your VIN and let me know if anything needs to be changed.
