    The problem is that when the car is released from the plant to Penske, it may take a while before Penske takes delivery. This happens with all the painted stripe cars.

    Ask your dealer for a copy of the Full History Vehicle Visibility Report on the day you car is delivered to the dealer. This report will will not be available after the dealer reports that the car has been sold. You snooze, you lose.

    There is no connection between the VIN and the chassis number. The chassis number is determined by the build date and the cars position on the assembly line. Look over this post. 2021 GT500 Registry

    No 2023 GT500. There will be a S550 Mustang in 2023 but it will be a short model year.

    When the railcar arrives at industry it means that the railcar has reached its final destination and is waiting to be picked up and delivered to the dealer. Since the railcar is still in the Union Pacific system, you can still track the railcar. It is probably empty and is heading to another...

    I would do as @Chairman suggested, call the dealer and have them send you a copy of the full Vehicle Visibility Report. It sounds like your car is sitting at the railyard and is waiting to get picked up by a trucking company for final delivery to your dealer.

    The car is sent to Penske for the stripes and when it is returned to the plant it is inspected and then released for shipment.

    The car got trucked over to the railyard in New Boston, MI and is waiting to get loaded into to railcar. The problem with New Boston is that it may take some time to get enough cars to fully load a railcar, the railcars hold 16 cars.

    From what I have seen, the VVR seems to disappear when the dealer reports that the car has been sold.

    One good thing, Ford only puts in enough gas to drive the cars on and off the railcar or trailer and get the car to the gas station at the dealership. And an added bonus, the cars were probably in transport mode so no one was going to out run the police.

    This just means that they are not issuing new VIN's. This will change when they have caught up with production. All the cars with a VIN will be built on their scheduled build dates, barring any plant shutdowns.

    Ain't that the truth, the 2020MY was pretty confusing when it came the Handling Package, it took Ford a long time to finally determine exactly what parts came with the HP option. The problem didn't get resolved until the 2021MY.

    Mustangs aren't built until the plant has all the parts to build them. They can't be released from the plant for shipment until they have been deemed saleable. As far as I know, Flat Rock may be one of the only Ford plants that has this policy.
