bets are open on my car that entered the mod shop yesterday, clearing the mod shop and being loaded he shipped by Monday am...
Once your car has been released from the plant for shipment, it is up to the shipper to take it from there. Think of it like placing a letter in your mailbox and waiting for the mail person to pick it up.

After the car is released and not shipped, the only control that Ford has is the ability to go to the lot and pick it up and put it back into production if they need to do an inspection. I had this happen to my 2020.

@Snoopy49 I get that - makes sense you can only control what you can control...
What I’m taking bets on is my car - that entered the mod shop yesterday - being “safe” from the shuttering for a week and actually getting loaded.
I chatted with a buddy who asked a former Flat Rock supervisor and shuttering is not a complete closing like last year for the RONA - so - who knows.

The GT500 takes priority over all other Mustang builds. They will build every single one planned unless there is a GT500 specific parts shortage. Of course some dealers will use the news of plant shutdowns or production delays to justify ADMs.
