Hi - I ordered my blue BL+BL w tow on March 31 and still have a build date of May 31, but considering so many others are still waiting, I have my doubts (date only changed once so far). Other than the Ford email w/ links, is there any other way to track the build date? I've had the VIN # for about a month or so. thanks.
Ordered a Cactus Gray BL+BL on 2/22 and a build date of 6/28. Probably never see it. I can’t figure out how they decide when a vehicle is going to be built. I even bribed them with an extra $500. 😜

BS BL + BL, 360+, tow +
My dealer suggested and the sticker indicated May 28. I got a phone call on May 7 it was on the lot. I would expect earlier more than on time or later.
I agree...mine is waiting for PPF and Ceramic coating on the dealership floor as it came in 2 weeks early.

It will get done. My window sticker had an order date of Jan 29 and it rolled May 7. If things started up today I'd guess the 28fh is a worst case.

Ordered 4/15, original build date of 5/24, changed to 6/7, but just got an email saying it is back to the original date of 5/24! Getting the OB+OB, tow and 360+. Let’s hope they can stick to the schedule! Should arrive in time for Fathers Day.

That is awesome! I wish that my order could be rolled back too.

Stopped at my dealer today and I talked to Ford Reservations. I do not get why they cannot pick up a phone, call the facility and talk to someone who knows what the heck is going on. I am losing my patience with the lack of caring about customers anymore. Look at the date it has been sitting since. People can talk about the shut down if they want, but this supposedly started before shut down......

if you count by in production date of 4-27 and then add in downtime 2 week delay, yours should be built today and maybe ship by tomorrow

I had a build week of May 31. My dealer is checking to see if it has changed. I'll tell you what I hear.
Today my salesman said the quick status now says TBD. Holy cow. The dealership has a liason person who is checking with Ford on what's the real deal.

My only question is that it is already showing in the "Body Shop" phase now since that date? Is that normal?

Mine also went into the body shop on a Friday and didn't come out until Monday. I wonder if yours just stayed in the Body Shop due to the shutdown.

yes it was in body on last day of production and goes to paint afterwards and was assembled today I bet. I used to work on the assembly line and my father was an electrician in the body shop at Edison Assembly in NJ before it shut down. I remembered the whole process. Actual assembly is quick and done in over 3-4 hours once vehicle is out of body and paint. Paint is done just a day before and body just before that where floorpan, frame and panels are welded.
