That’s

That is so fascinating I wonder what they PP 001 was built as mine was built on May 26, 2015
I would suggest that PP001 was built during the same month as yours except possibly a week or two earlier.

Interesting to note that your 2016 GT350R was built ~2 months prior to my 2015 GT350 Track Pack car which was assembled on July 23rd, 2015.

Of course there were no Pilot Production Shelby GT350/R vehicles built for the 2015 MY with the first PP cars coming out for the 2016 MY.

Wow I’m so glad you’re on this forum ! Much information about this special topic! Your MY 2015 track pack was built after my PP011? I’m Amazed and slightly confused but it’s exciting to see this history unravel and that you have this information is very revealing and appreciated ! I can’t wait to get back from Mission Bay San Diego to go see the car that I bought that sitting in my garage and Hayden Idaho that I’ve never seen or driven only my brother has when it was unloaded after transport from Alabama ! It’s sitting in the garage and it’s cold in Idaho right now are my pilot sport cup twos safe sitting there it’s in the 20s and 30s outside but it’s in the garage??

Would suggest that your tires may be safe from the cold (subject to not previously having been driven in other cold conditions) but certainly don't start moving it around during those cold temperatures as you are just looking for trouble.

If somehow you could get some heat into your garage that would be a good thing!

Good luck and hopefully FP can help you out with some additional documentation on your very early 2016 Pilot Production GT350R!

Called Ford Performance and got Noah Parke there on Jan 28th for Help and any info that could be provided! After two outgoing emails to them with the cars info I never received a reply! I called back and the original person thought I was inquiring about a boss? Do was transferred Tony Fodera the supervisor! Fantastic guy ! Did help me with its original MSRP ETC but mention “Ford internal “ does not share any pre production info to pass on ! So The mystery of how they select each car and how each car is finished with correct fit and finish etc.Is still a secret! Noah said there are some fort secrets they cannot share ! Does anyone out there work for Ford and know anything about these preproduction cards I know PP0001 has helped a lot!

Not sure how much information that you have been able to compile for your car but just in case you don't already have this information here is what I can tell you.

* There were 61 R models produced in Magnetic Gray for 2016 with that number including all Pre-Production units
* Of the 61 R's produced 53 came with the Electronics Package (such as yours) with 8 cars coming as Base R models
* The FRAP produced 50 cars with Black OTT stripes such with 3 cars coming with White OTT stripes and 2 cars coming with Blue OTT stripes & 6 cars came with no stripes
* Of the 61 R's produced 52 cars went to the U.S., 8 went to Canada with 1 car being exported to the Caribbean
* 16 cars came with a Painted Black Roof
* Of the 7 colors available for the R model in 2016 the most popular color was Shadow Black with 159 cars built and Oxford White was second with 147 cars built
* The only color not available on an R model for 2016 was Competition Orange but that color was available on a regular GT350

Hope that some of the above information is helpful to you.

PP0001 do you work for Ford ? Or can you not say? Having a collection of preproduction bosses like that is amazing and quite an accomplishment! You are a true enthusiast! So If anyone on our Forum works for Ford in the flat rock plant , know anyone who might know more of PP0001 ‘s cars history as well as mine ? For instance having a 2016 PP GT350R built on may 26th 2015 given an G” vin before many 2015’s were built and given an F” vin for 2015 ? There’s definitely a story! ;; in 1993 as I was a grandfathered in SVT rep for the dealer I learned in my Ford Svt Binder that all SVT cobras went down the mustang assembly line ; pulled off to check for fit and finish paint etc. and put on a million dollar Burke porter squeak and rattle machine separately from all other Mustangs. I know that there’s hidden Stories about these special cars !
