So, I have been doing a lot of searching today... not soul searching, but R searching and I have came across this price issue on many Ford dealership websites.

Once I told a few of the dealers the discrepancies of their website price and their $10,000++++ ADMs, they gave me the excuse that the Ford website generalizes the Shelby GT350/R as a “Mustang” and blindly applies the discounts non-GT350’s have attached.

After I heard $20k ADMs today from multiple dealer salesmen, that excuse, which probably is a reality, none of it seemed to matter. Lol.

I don't understand how this still works for dealers in 2020. I have no time for fake quotes, "call or come in to find out" or whatever other crap. It's not the 1970's. If they pull that I'm not even talking to them and let them know why. There are other dealers out there that advertise their prices online, stick by them, are honest and try to make things easy. Why does anyone deal with anything else? I understand the 350's are a little rarer so sometimes you're stuck with what you've got, but more generally like when I bought my first new car (a VW), I found a dealership that did not mark up and let me do 90% of the paperwork online. I literally walked in, wrote a check signed some things and left. Zero negotiation or bullshit. Like c'mon.

I know this won’t be popular. Business tactics have always been shadey by many and will not stop in the future. That being said, we all know on this forum what these cars cost and are being sold for. Getting pissed because a car isn’t being sold for way under msrp is pointless. If you think it’s bad now wait till they formally release that 2020 is probably the last year for 350.

It will be interesting to see what the next GT350 will be like if it ever comes out. I don't think it will have a naturally aspirated engine.

The way the world is changing IF there is ever another GT350 release you can bet it will only be an automatic and hopefully not but could be an electric car. Advertised by how quick it is not what it is. If any of that happens they damn better keep the Shelby name out of it.

I had a dealer do that crap with a GT500 last week, they listed it at MSRP, I had the deal done with the online rep, was ready to book a flight to chicago when the sales manager called and said the price was $15k more. Screw them I bought a new 2019 GT350 $6k under msrp the next day.
By chance Was this Fox Ford Chicago?
