I'm not looking forward to frustrating anyone more than they already are. Wondering if anyone else is in a similar situation.
They probably are and haven't said anything because some people on here will be butthurt or they are not part of this forum, have no clue what is really going on and thought it's just part of the process

Has anyone else noticed that on these orders, that it lists the wheelbase? as if to imply that there's a different option you can get? this amuses me for some reason

"Yeah, I'd like a 4 dr, but can I get it with the 2dr wheelbase? that works better for me"

So is towing package not a restraint anymore? I removed mine should I put it back on? I think I’m held up because of getting 2door door with MIC

I believe that is the only tough to get option on my build.

A Jan 11th '21 Reservation has a VIN but my Jul 14th '20 hasn't had any response from Ford.
Looks like they're scraping the bottom of the barrel to find builds (BTW, great for all who have VINs, no offence meant here).

What should I do to get a VIN.... no tires?
But I'm still sticking to my build. For some more time at least...

Reserved January 11th--- Ordered March 15th -- Got a VIN on 5/27 with a production date of July 26th.
I'm confused...did I just get away with something?

Good blessings for you, and you got the trailer hitch as well. I hope you keep your build date, mine's been moved a few times!

Glad you're not compromising on your build. It'll come in time, and be worth waiting for!

Non MIC, SAS, or 2.7. Ya done good kid.
There was a recent post that didn’t realize the difference between an order number and a VIN. It’s sounds like you do. The posted document is an order only. I assume the VIN came separate. Congrats.

I would say your lucky; but not really. You don't have any of the add-on that Ford is having difficulty supplying. So people that are still waiting, if you want a 2021 take this as an example on what you have to sacrifice.

That is crazy that they had to go all the way to a Jan 11 reservation date to find something that could be built. They are going to run out of buildable orders pretty quick at that rate.
I'll be pleasantly surprised if August isn't at least 50% dealer stock 4dr ragtop builds.
