Has Ford production resumed? Is the UAW back to work making Mustangs? I have a car on order. May 18th build day before the stoppage.

Only Chrysler plans to reopen May 4th. Ford plans a second quarter restart, which would have to be sometime before June 30th, as the article doesn’t give a specific date. The 3rd quarter of a fiscal year would begin on July 1st for reference.

Keep in mind, just about anyone who relies on other workers to produce just about anything will be delayed.
Supply lines will be severely disrupted if not down right severed for a long time.
We’re all going to need patience during this time. It’s really getting to a lot of people.
I’m thinking about a year to year and a half to recover...Just my opinion.

Good, so I can still change my order even though a VIN was assigned.

Based on my experience once a VIN has been assigned to your car making any changes is not very easy to do.

Also, if you are talking an EcoBoost or a Mustang GT that may be one thing but if it is a GT350/R that may be another story especially if you are talking about a GT350/R model and HEP optioned car?

I have it on good word that any cars "in production" and "sent to plant" will be produced in order from when the music stopped. IIRC, the shutdown occurred about mid March. If you were not both of the statuses listed above, your build could potentially be put off until it is rescheduled. If you were, plan the time frame from then to now for a future projection.

Just to be clear are you suggesting that anyone with a confirmed VIN and presently not "in production" and not "sent to plant" whether it be a GT350 or GT500 are they in jeopardy of not having their car built for the 2020 MY?

Lastly, what does "future project" suggest based on what you are aware of at this time?

I don't know. Thats up to Ford. I had a chat with Noah. Cars with a VIN, and the status said will be built in order. After that? I don't know. I'm not suggesting anything.

Based upon what was discussed, the impression I got was any VIN in the system and sent to plant will be produced in that order. After that, only Ford knows. I said future projection, not project.

My build was assigned a vin with a build date in mid May. Of course, before this fiasco began. A GT by the way.

A mustang GT is a totally different animal. What I was discussing was particular to Ford Performance vehicles. Yours could be built the day the doors open for all I know.

Just curious, why the GT350 section of the forum?
