So, 500 Days after placing our reservation for a 4-door Badlands, we got the call from our dealer that the Bronco had arrived. We intended to head straight over, but were unable to get there until today. Likely worked out better as it was a much nicer day. We are really pleased with the Velocity Blue in person. Toothman Ford in Grafton, WV was absolutely fantastic. No funny business and our agreed upon price was honored without question.

Interesting part of the story.... As we were on our pre-purchase drive, I had to take a second look at the driver's seat. After everything we've experienced during this process, nothing surprises me. Low and behold, the seat back is not the same material as the rest of our interior. We ordered the Black Marine Grade Vinyl, but the driver's seat back is Navy Pier Leather. Are you kidding me @Ford Motor Company !?!? I guess the seat installer/assembler was a bit hung over on assembly day, but equally shocking that this made it through QC!! They aren't even the same color (see pic below)!! The dealership was shocked and said they'd order a replacement, but we should be prepared for a long lead time... What do you say??? What do you do??? It doesn't inspire confidence in the vehicle, and makes me wonder what else might not be correct....

It's a unicorn, like a misprinted coin. Might have extra value some day.

Two weeks later my Bronco has left Indiana and is on its way to Illinois. I have very little confidence in the Ford estimate for delivery this week.

Ours was built on 11/9 and still nothing to southern Indiana.
The delivery estimate was 11/18- 11/24, then 11/29 and now 12/2.
We'll be in Indiana for a wedding that weekend (2nd-to the 6th) so if it shows up we'll be able to pick it up.
If not it won't be till Spring.

I took my drone to the rail yard to get a peak at my bronco. The trip did not disappoint:

Hopefully tomorrow! Dealer is closed on Sundays and with how everything else is going, I won't trust it until I see it with my own two eyes. Lol we drove around the lot today and couldn't find it... Assuming it is inside getting it's final inspection or so I hope.

Anyone have insight into the logic of when/if Ford sends you a production line picture? You would think of all the things that would be sequential in this 1.5 year journey, snapping a picture and emailing as they come off the assembly line would be it. What am I missing?

You would think! It seems, according to the tracker, everyone around me is getting their pic but me! LOL I keep checking, even my junk folder...nothing!
