What the hell kinda gas they putting into those things? I‘m a team leader on a unit that removes benzene from gasoline streams at a refinery. There shouldn’t be more than minute traces of benzene in gasoline. Benzene is worth about 150 times what gasoline is worth. Don’t make much sense. Sounds like there is more to the story.

I see your a moderator so do you happen to know if an order already has a VIN will it for certain be a MY2021 or could Ford invalidate the VIN, cancel order and instruct customer to resubmit when MY2022 order banks open up?
As I understand it, if you have a VIN, your order will be built. Ford schedule in sufficient time between order banks closing and the new model year builds.

Man, I hear ya. I ordered mine on 5/15/21, it was built on 8/4/21, it's shipped, but not here yet. They told me by 9/14/21. I hope so. Your build sounds pretty good. I did fully loaded TO, GT Premium 401A with everything but Recaros. I can't wait to see it and drive it. So, I feel your pain. Mine has been through a couple of plant shut downs as well.

Everything I read said Monday.

I called FP and they said my Mach 1 moved up a week. We will see if that holds tomorrow

Maybe the line will move faster as the just in time parts have a week head start. and should be sitting waiting to be installed.
Just posting a ray of sunshine for those waiting for thier ride.

is that only for mach 1 or can you call them with a Gt vin? is it the same info you’ll get emailed to you from ford saying if your date moved as well?

It can be any VIN I think..

you should have your email with production date and VIN from Ford. My original was 11/08, and moved to 11/01.

call the number, option 1, and give them last 8 of your VIN

wow. ridiculous. guess mines pushed back definitely.

If I had a late December production date I would be worried.. Mine is 11/01, so I just need to be patient a lot of weeks between that date and end of 2021 model year.
