Exciting times! Does anyone know when they halt delivery for the winter months?

R? Electronics package? Tell us more

About a week from your scheduled build date, you can download your window sticker. The top of the sticker will have your blend date. The blend is when your car will go from a frame to a built car with a few exceptions like the wing and CF wheels (If an R). Then it waits on transportation to your dealer. Figure 3-4 weeks after your blend date till delivery.

Thank you Tom!!
Start a new thread with all the details and share your experience. I told you that you had nothing to worry about.

I sure do appreciate you explaining what to expect! I will have to ask my kids how to start a new thread in the morning.

mine is a non R. R is more than i am willing to stretch the budget. no electronic or convenience pack either.. i was torn about the nav because i like how the screen looks and the startup screen is pretty badass. but after much debate i decided that for a car like this i think nav is unnecessary and recaros were a must, if i wouldve gotten an R i would have done radio and ac delete, seems to me how this car should be. my understanding is oct 2 startup and they will build them for 6 weeks before the shutdown

Congrats Mike. That lead foot will look awesome. You'll love the Recaros. Honestly could not imagine owning this car with the other seats. Post those pics when you get her.

Congrats to both of you gentlemen on getting your 2018MY information already as that is pretty exciting.

With such early allocation and build dates are either of you willing to share your VIN numbers as it would be interesting to see how they eventually compare to your chassis numbers?

On the R model do I understand correctly that you went with a base 920A car or did I misunderstand and your car is coming with the Electronics Package?

I have an R on order for the 2018MY and still waiting for a scheduled built date and VIN.

Thanks for sharing and keeping us all in the loop!

:thumbsup::thumbsup:

I went with the electronics package on the R. I will always be so happy with this purchase but if I could change one thing I would have ordered a base. That's ok as I'm fortunate to have the MY 18R and keep my MY 17 GT350. When the GT500 comes out I will definitely sell one. I will post the VIN tomorrow.

I do not mean to hijack your post, just want to add to the convo without creating a dup thread. I too received my build date and VIN for my '18 GT350 order. This past Friday my sales rep informed me that my build is scheduled the week of 09 Oct. Order is for a Lighting Blue GT350 (non-R) with electronics package and stripe delete.

Order process thus far:
- 28 Jul; Build specs were given to my sale rep
- 29 Jul; Preview Order Sheet with a pri-code of 10
- 21 Aug (on or about); Ford tagged order with pri-code 01
- 01 Sep; Build scheduling with VIN (probably 31 Aug but Friday is when I was notified)

Hope this helps. I have been skulking through the forums for a bit and really have appreciated all the experiences and info provided by forum members. Thanks!

Check your tires for cracks if its an R. Sometimes they sit in the snow.

edit: see that you chose the 350 non R. Glad it doesnt matter if it sits in the snow.
