    My order is still in Production mode on the tracker, my sticker also now has 3/13/19 on the bottom, it first said 2/13/19. Could that date merely be when the online stickers were last updated in Ford’s database? Just my guess...
    As far as my dealer knows, my order and his identical order have not yet been “pulled” - car dealer lingo I did not ask to clarify - but he was not happy about that. Knowing my luck the extra twin cars will show up on my dealer’s lot this week lol. Hoping Zooks527 progress and everyone else’s continues positively.

    Mine, which was available yesterday with a 3/13 date at the bottom, also became unavailable this morning.

    Interesting. Then again, I haven't been tending to use the link to see the sticker that often, as I downloaded it when it first became available. I only did it yesterday to see what date was on the bottom, and tried again to day to see if that date changed with the first day of the week.

    Edit: Huh. A half hour later and it's back. Still 3/13 at the bottom.


    If the orders haven't been pulled yet, it means that Ford is currently planning to ship him two custom built cars that he didn't originally have plans to sell. He'll likely get whole in the end, farming them out to another dealer if need be, but it's work he wasn't planning on. Another issue is just what you said - he'll have twins. It's a killer when someone walks in and says, "Oh, that would be just what I want, if only it were <insert color here>" and you can't try to flip the person to a different color that you have on the lot.

    My window sticker also got stuck at 3/13. FordPerfChat says my Mustang is off the train and on a truck, the dealer is only about 45 minutes from the railyard but delivery date is 3/25 to 3/29. Huh?

    The biggest failure of the whole process (so far) has been Ford's lack of communication and nonsense dates.

    So it does mean a status change when your date changes. My dealer just called me and said the train was in at the Winston-Salem rail yard.

    They are suppose to load it on the truck and deliver post haste, so this week. I'm excited now!

    Maybe the sticker change matters for some that are in process BUT my new car purchased this past weekend and was delivered to the dealer on 2/21/19 per Carfax ALSO has a sticker date of 3/13/19 - I am sticking to my theory that is the date stickers are updated in the Ford system because all of the events related to this vehicle would have already passed. Maybe it is accounting for the unsold units based on window stickers as of that date? Also more evidence is the window sticker update to 3/13/19 for my lost order which is still Producing - no event there at all yet to trigger a sticker date change.

    I just noticed your sticker does not say "special order" in the box just above and a little to the right of the border date. I went to look at mine and it has "special order," so there is that.

    Whatever that means. I just know that every time the tracker changed, the date on my sticker had already changed by a day or two.

    Yes you are correct, it was a dealer order I think - miracle birth!! since supposedly the dates it was produced and delivered were around the mexican strike shutdown. I just was pointing out that mine too was showing 3/13/19 - maybe ALL unsold cars’ stickers have this date?

    The vehicle tracker just keeps GOING UP each day instead of down ( blend date of 1/23/19)! I get depressed every 3 days when I look at it. Neither the dealer nor Ford can give me any USEFUL, TRUTHFUL, information. I just don’t know what I can do except wait.

    Still in production since 2-14 and not possible to give an estimated time for shipping or ETA at dealer.

    Yeah, if you're stuck waiting for a wheel (and with a 1/23 blend you most likely are), the tracker starts counting up after you pass the original delivery estimate. The tracking page doesn't handle exceptions like this at all well.

    Still, mine changed state after sitting "At Production / Produced" for about a month. It seems to indicate that they're working through the pile (assuming it really is awaiting shipment).

    Guys we have all
    Mine is custom order. It's mine but technically isn't sold and has 03/15/19. Blend date: 03/22/19.

    Btw you were right about the lower date. Tried to download sticker today and it was 03/15/19. Didn't changed.

    Alright guys got an update...the mustang has moved to In Transit as of today. Order Date 1/15
    Blend Date 2/25. Car has been Awaiting Shipment since 2/27. Original EDD was 3/16. The 16th came and all of a sudden it said 4/7 EDD. Well today i looked at it and it’s on a Convoy coming this way. Current EDD is 3/30. If it’s not steering wheels should i assume it took 2.5 weeks to fill a convoy with cars coming this way?24D3186A-56BA-4C9F-8A43-A7C06FDB966E.pngA4A03AD3-F1E4-4DB2-AA7D-5A79F8AE773C.png

    Based on your production date I think you should have avoided the steering wheel issue....
