    Important info! Thanks @PP0001 . Linked in the GT350 Basics sticky. I'll put it near the top in the Production Numbers section.

    (Speaking of Production Numbers, still waiting for someone to post the 2019 numbers....)

    Thanks for your help Jim as very much appreciated!:clap:

    With respect to 2019 GT350/R numbers it is my understanding that the team at FP is getting very close to compiling and completing all of the data and of course with all of them working from home for quite some time this certainly has slowed down the process as well.

    Your welcome and completely understand that these production numbers, facts and figures do not mean a great to many individuals as these cars are not for everyone but hope some of this will be helpful to present and future owners of these cool cars.

    With the FRAP discontinuing production permanently for the 6 year run of the GT350/R's within the next 4 or 5 months it will be nice to look back at a year from now or even 5 years from now on all of these cool cars and have some sort of reference numbers and information to fall back on with this case being information complied for the 4 year production of the 2015 to 2018 Base R models.

    Regarding the 2019 production numbers I received an email this morning confirming that we should have the final production numbers very soon.

    Harry a very nice job on this list. I'm going to print it off & file away with other paper work regarding our 350. Great stuff to reference in the future. I recall seeing another list of the Base R delete items & am wondering "IF" you have the time to attach it with this thread for future reference also.

    Tell us what year the "Orange Fury" was available? I'll bet many of us wish we had ordered that color to have such a rare care indeed! Thanks

    Thanks Rex and great to see you back on the forum as I realize this is a very busy time for you.

    Orange Fury was available during the 2018 model with 633 R models produced for that MY of which 612 of those cars came with the Electronics Package.

    Of those 612 R models that came with the Electronics Package for 2018 there were 30 R's that were ordered in Orange Fury and as we now know 0 Base R's ordered in that same color.

    I don't know about you but personally I really liked the OF color and should have ordered that car with a Black roof.:facepalm:

    Will compile a list of delete items that these cars come with and post them in due course.

    You and Shelly stay safe and well my friend!

    The Base R steering wheels are unique to the Base R, because of less electronic features.
    Harry can elaborate if he wants to.

    Hey Dan and Rex, thanks for you both jumping in here and this is an issue that I really never took into consideration.

    Since I have owned only Base R's I have not really thought of comparing the steering wheel for one of our Base R's with an Electronics Package R model.

    Dan, if you could take the lead and outline the differences in the steering wheels between these two cars that would be great and Rex thanks for bringing this to my attention as always something to learn on these cool cars.

    OK. On the Base R steering wheel, no buttons on right side above the shock and steering
    button cluster, because of no audio.

    On the left side, no phone control button, cruise control buttons only.

    I will send some pictures to Harry to post. I have the computer skills of a Texas Horned Lizard.
