Just did a quick wash. This is first time I have gotten to see it in the sun light. We have had rain, clouds and tornados since I brought it home.

Kept saying I didn't want a black car so I ended up with DMG. I really like how the side stripe blends in on this color.

That thing is absolutely beautiful. Is it a 22 or 23?

Does anyone know when Ford will update the website to where one can build a 23?

I don’t think we will know an exact date but I’m sure someone will catch it and post it online. Based on last year, it was like early March 2022 when building a model year 22 was first available, and then it had a ton of issues using it for the first month. I would think this year would be similar. You can always talk to your local dealer for all of the 23 specs and options as they have that information already but if you are just looking for the online configuration to mess around with, that is pretty much always delayed.

Most of the options are the same as 2022, a few colors did not come back for 2023. There’s an order guide thread that has all the available options. At this point since order banks are closed they’ll probably just flip it to the S650 6 months after those order banks open 🤣

I currently have a challenger srt, but it's the automatic. Now that I'm retired and don't have to drive in traffic I sure miss a manual and my favorite of all the mustangs has always been the California Special so I'm going to take a hard look at it.

I’d look fast. My guess is they probably flip the plants to the S650 early spring. Order banks are closed but I’ve heard that some dealers will allow customers to take over a car ordered for stock (and some things can be changed up until a build date is assigned). Good luck, they’re fun cars! And the CS is a great looking trim

🤣🤣🤣

That $1995 price on the 22 looked strangely familiar… had to look it up on the window sticker. Looks like you over paid by $5 for your 2019 because in 2016 the CS pack was also $1995! 🤣 WTF Ford!!
