Nearing 2k miles on my 2021 and it’s been nothing short of fantastic. Easily one of the best cars I’ve ever had the pleasure of owning.

Can I be "NOSY" and ask what "THE A PLAN IS EXACTLY " ? Never heard that before.. How long you work for FOMOCO . Was it assembly line work ? Curious ..What is start to finish time frame to complete ,say a "MUSTANG " .. From Nothing to driving it out the back door .. Always wondered ,perhaps you may know the answer .. Thanks and "LOVE YOUR STANG MAN " !! Junqdawg

Yes I worked on the assembly line at Chicago Assembly Plant for 21 years I took the Buy Out in 2007 because of health issues. The a-plan is an employee purchase plan.I believe its about 2-3 days I worked in chassis on the motor line where the engines are built.

We’re you able to buy your GT500 on the A-Plan?

There not required to do so its volantery on their part! Not all Ford dealers can get a GT500 in so the ones that do generally charge a market adjustment.Because its a special car now some people are saying they didnt pay over list,that may or may not be true I would like to see the documentation on their list price transaction.Did they pay sales tax well then they paid about what I did!

Yes, I agree. I hope to be able to order a 2022 at MSRP, but I am still waiting to see if I can get a call back from a dealer with an allocation.

Being from the Detroit area originally, I have several relatives who are retired Ford employees so I was wondering if I needed to hit one of them up about the A-Plan...

A-plan on a Shelby is going to be a tough deal because the dealer does not make that much money on that deal now if you paid list they make 5-thousand plus more.Its because they paid invoice for the car and Ford pays them the dealer holdback and the advertising fund money!
