Dealer called and gave me my vin number!
Got an email from my dealer this morning saying ford called him to say they are building my 4dr BB V6, non Sas soon. I also have a 2dr base on order and was sure I'd see that first. Reservation for the 4dr was on day 2, the 2dr was on day 3 and I placed the orders for each around Feb10. Dealer estimates I'll have within 60 days. He is quite trustworthy. BTW, he is a tiny dealer.

You think "those people" are actually going to touch it?
I'd be less concerned about people actually using the winch than I would about what people decide to 'try' simply because they have a winch available.

Okay but he is full of crap and what leads you to believe he has any credibility?

Starting this thread was literally his first post and he's provided zero evidence of anything.

Ford stated very clearly everyone has till the 8th (today) to confirm addition of headliner for MGV builds (he claims he ordered a BL) so why would they generate a vin number on a customer order before that deadline?

In addition to all of that they haven't even finished scheduling and have stated scheduling and notification of builds won't happen till May.

Given all these factors does a new site user with ZERO credibility making a statement literally the thousands of other site users can't claim to make and going against everything thing we've been told by Ford themselves and dealers with actual credibility on this site get overridden by this random guy?

Seriously dude.

This thread need to be closed cause it's just stupid.
Have you read this?

Ford insider.... The only VINs that I can see that are schedule are all prior to the Job 1 date (May 3rd). OP got bad info.

Everyone carry on, they should be coming up fairly soon. And no, I don’t know an exact date. It’s typically 2-3 weeks prior to being built.

For those who've been reading between the lines, this shouldn't be all that surprising. Customer orders in certain configurations were always going to be built in the early MP phases, and before the more complex dealer demo builds (which I believe are all in MP2).

These rigs will have to sit at MAP until OKTB is issued, but customer orders are being built right now in very small numbers.

Not sure if it would be a good thing or bad thing to have one of the first built.
