I did get confirmation with the dealer it was just the cfhp so went ahead and just stuck with our original order now will be waiting for a vin

Someone still habe acess to when the vins drop?
Please put your car info under your screen name. I don’t recall what you have on order.

As for tracking when your VIN drops, your best bet now is calling the Ford Performance hotline.

No, your car shows that it has not been produced. When you see "Built" on Ford tracking website, it will be waiting for shipment.

This is a new status that Ford decided to use only on their website, it combined "Produced" and "Awaiting Shipment" into "Built". My guess is that "Produced" which meant that car rolled off the assembly line but did not take into consideration the extra time required for stripes and any unforeseen inspections or holds on the car, pissed off a lot of their customers who had cars "Produced" and were still waiting for their cars to be released for shipment. So Ford decided not to announce anything until the car was waiting for a train or truck.

From the Ford website. This what you will see when it is "Awaiting Shipment"
Built
Your vehicle has been built and we are arranging shipment to your dealer. This step could take a few days to a week.

Yeah they said it was in production on 4-1, I was hoping it tipped over today. The weather is nice and the street sweepers were out yesterday

I just checked and it shows that your car rolled off the assembly line today.

Once it gets going in the Body Shop, it takes 4-7 days (depending on weekends and holidays). Vinyl striping is done in the same plant and probably adds 1-3 days to the process (depending on weekends and holidays). Painted stripes could add over a month.

Any word on the painted stripe cars? My race red with black stripe CFTP was supposedly off the line 3/6 and slated for 4/4, but has since updated to 4/19. Still "In production" status.
