2015 Mustang First Production Starts July 14; Convertible Starts September 15? [UPDATED]

UPDATE 2:  Sources at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant tell us that MP1 (mass production) for the 2015 Mustang begins next week, while MP2 (Job 1) will not begin until August 11, 2014.

UPDATE:  A Ford spokesman has stated : “Our Job 1 customer cars will be built closer to the on-sale date, which is this Fall.”  Ford has not clarified whether this applies to both stock orders and customer special orders so for now, we will just have to wait and see.  


Yes, you read that right 2015 Mustang fans!

New info from a Ford Dealer Bulletin has revealed that first production (Job 1) of the new Mustang is set to begin in just four short days starting on Monday, July 14, 2014.

Also exciting is that we now finally have word on when the S550 convertible will begin production (September 15).

As for the mysterious “OKTB” date?  Our dealer friends tell us this “OK to BUY” date is when Ford estimates that it will begin scheduling retail orders for regular 2015 Mustangs.  The OKTB dates of September 9, for the fastback, and October 27, for the convertible are much sooner than many had originally believed.

Check INSIDE for further updates as we get them.
