This was in my 350R when it was delivered to me. I assume it has something to do with dealer prep, but I don't know. Anyone know what it is?

I think it's meant to protect the clutch pedal and keep the spring from flying off during installation.

Did Ford start putting the clutch assist spring back in 2020?

Yeah I've seen a thread regarding this tool, on this website. IIRC, it's an assembly line tool used during clutch pedal installation.

Meanwhile in Flat Rock there is an assembly line worker scratching his head while mumbling "Now where in Sam Hell did I put that damn clutch tool... Oh s#!t, here comes another Shelby... Screw it, who's gonna notice the difference?"

Your car just went up in value... you have the last Shelby assembled with a clutch tool!

I can see it now at Barrett-Jackson: "Comes with the original assembly line clutch tool!"

I had one in my 350 when I took delivery back in 2017. I posted the same question, and never got a definitive answer on what it was.
