Today my Dad came home with info on our GT500. We have a partial vin as the car is not 100% ready. It is convertible, White with blue stripes. I don't know all of the options at the moment, but will get them off the sheet. Delivery wasn't told, but I'm guessing its soon.

I didn't want a 'vert, but my Dad does, so he wins. Hes paying for it, but I'll probably put the most miles on that bad boy. :D

You don't get a partial VIN.Either the dealer gave you the VIN or he didn't.If it is being made there is a VIN,but anyways good for your dad.I hope you spent some time with your dad on fathers day.Post some pictures when he gets.

He didn't order it. Our dealer was given a 2 car allotment, one of which so happened to be exactly what my Dad wanted.

The GT500 isn't mine, but I'll have tons of wheel time.

Well, it is a partial VIN listed, and I probably just don't know how to fill out the rest. It says "VIN # VHT89S 75"...:confused: Any clarification you can give?

Mustang Shelby GT500 Conv
HP- PERFORMANCE WHITE CLEARCOAT
G- NO GRAIN MINI PERF LEATHER
W- DARK CHARCOAL
Then it lists the norma... brakes, engine, trans...etc, black cloth roof
Sirius Satellite Radio
GT500 Premier Trim Package
Shelby Blue Tape Stripe

Thats all we know for now...

And yea, I spent all day w/my Dad on Fathers Day.

That number VHT89S 75 is NOT the VIN. I have my DORA report and the SAME number is on the form to the right of the VIN field. It is probably some type of tracking number.

Yes, that is a partial VIN. It is just the parts of the VIN that do not vary from car to car...

VIN # stands for:
1 = country of manufacturer (USA)
ZV = manufacturer's identifier (Ford - Auto Alliance)
H = Airbags (specifically side airbags)
T88 = body code (Shelby GT500 coupe, T89 = GT500 vert)
S = engine code (5.4L DOHC S/C V8 )

5 = random check digit (0-9 or X are the only possibilities)
7 = model year (2007)
5 = code identifying the assemby plant

196137 = sequential identifier

Thank you for all the info. I knew someone would have it.

Today the dealer called and said build date is July 7th. Expected delivery is end of July or August.

Berzerk, you are one lucky SOB!!!
Take a ton of photos, and keep us informed. When I was 21 all I had was a 1970 Chevelle (302, origional paint and rust, with old tires).

Good for you and count your blessings!!!
