As far as I know his one allocation has been promised to me. At least that's what the paperwork says when I put a down payment on it
They don't check for an allocation when the order is placed, so he should have no problem placing the order.

For all the newbies to this process, nothing happens until the District Manager gives an allocation to a dealer. At that point FRAP assigns a VIN and the ball starts rolling.
All discussion about orders, etc. means little. FP has nothing to do with this process.
I’m sure their are thousands of orders in the system. But they all will sit there in unscheduled material hold until the real step one happens.
Early next year, allocations will start to flow and the rubber meets the road. When you have a VIN on your VOC/DORA, then you have an order. Until then….

Maybe an exception, Earl but my original order got kicked back two days later for not having a Golden Goose allocation.

Yep, I also like that it’s for Ford Performance vehicles only. Same as Ford Performance Blue but less people will choose the Orange over the blue.

The Chairman, KB & Snoopy49 ... thank you all for the education. I’m planning to place an order this week, so this info is helpful!

Hi there, new here and hope to have a 2022 GT 500 on order soon. Had a question about Code Orange? Is it metallic like on the Raptor?

It has the same code, CN, so it will be the same color. Looking forward to seeing it on a Shelby.

So does that mean anyone who put a deposit down for a 22 GT500 at a dealer really won't have a sure thing until said dealer is given his allocation in March? Would a reputable dealer with many past gt500 orders pretty much be a sure thing for a 22? Just curious if it's a crapshoot at this point.

It’s a crapshoot until the allocations are handed out. Big dealers have a better chance to play well. Smaller dealers can be iffy depending on overall build counts.
Hope we begin to see allocations soon. But who knows…
