Dont sell right now. Might take much longer for others to get their broncos and dealers know this based on misc recent parts ETA forecast next 3-6 months (slim/slow). Smoke em if you got em.

Man, you got two Broncos before most of us got one... what a good problem you have here.
Nope. I been waiting on my actual order since I first got a build date in May. That has been moved/delayed over 20 times now since then. Still don't have it either. Just a build date of Nov. 8th now. Wanna bet if that one is going to stand? I have this one cause I searched for one for weeks due to having no confidence mine would actually get built.

correction..... most of us are still waiting to get a notice that the ONE we ordered is actually going to be built and delivered to us and hopefully for the price originally agreed upon with our dealers. Man.... I hate those who are boastful about problems that others cannot even fathom. don't you?

Anyone could have gone out, been proactive early and did what I did, searched and searched and worked for it. Not my problem people didn't.

I thought there was a time limit... Either way Canada has auctions too lol
Pretty sure it has to do with all the EPA standards in the States and I'm not sure what kind of standards they have in Canada. Plus the speedo would be in kilometers. Who knows.

I am still waiting for my original/only order since May. After being dicked around for a year, I went in search of one. Just in case. I'm not looking to make money off of anyone, but I also can't sell it till my order is built and delivered. This current bronco is my only transportation. Nor can I do a private sale to someone in the states.

glad you found one. If I had the cash, I would have done the same thing. some of us dont have that as an option. I think we are all feeling a bit dicked around. I think most people just want Ford to catch up on the orders and make it right for everyone wanting to own their product but also not feel like they have been systematically slid back while somewhere, there are people just pulling up at dealers and buying them (again, not faulting you and your good fortune). It does look nice and it is great that you are enjoying it.

Congrats for getting one early but that needs some "splaining".!! All of us know that no dealer had a Bronco for retail that was not someone’s reservation/order. And the mannequins the dealers received had to be retained for 6 months so I’m extremely curious how you pulled it off.! 🙂🙂

Ford gets really pissy about vehicles less than 6 months old being sold into the USA from Canada. I had to promise my dealer that I would hang onto my Bronco until it was 6 months old. For every unit that turns up in the USA the Canadian dealer will lose allotment on future orders.

Could have been an abandoned order...but wasn't there also a rumor that Canada Ford dealers had dealer stock?

There is dealer stock on soft top Broncos in Canada. My dealer got 2 last week that were stocking orders and he has alottment for 3 more 21s as long as they are soft tops.

This was a customer order that for whatever reason they didn't or couldn't get. I just happened to be the first one there, after a 2 hr drive with the boy. Right place right time I guess. I'd been calling dealerships for weeks looking for a chance... Called this dealer the night before after seeing one just posted on their website. They told me to come down and have a look, after asking me if I had a reservation. They weren't sure this person was going to take it as they didn't seem to be in any hurry to come get it. So I got there first thing in the morning... It was out on a test drive with the person that placed the order. They get back, 20 mins later a sales guy comes out to me with the keys and said you were here first. Take it for a rip. I was like, wait wut... They aren't taking it... He said nope. I said give me the keys. Drove it to that bank to get a draft and came back with cash for msrp. That's how I happened upon this one.

There's the window sticker. They gave me 5k more than I had into my Ranger... So it was an easy deal.
