  1. Yes. The retail order is price protected to the original order date. When the Dealer Invoice is created the invoice is generated at the Price Level Code in effect at the time the vehicle was actually produced. The Dealer then files a claim for the price protection adjustment back to the original Price Level Code in effect on the original order date.
  2. Adding an option to an unscheduled order does not require the Dealer to re-enter the order. They simply add the additional option. Your original order date stays the same but the WBDO displays the current date and Price Level Code for when the revised vehicle specifications were viewed and/or printed.

    ‘22 Mustang Scheduling Questions

    Ford does not release information or schedules for Mustang's to be produced for export markets. The Job #1 Date for the 2022MY Mustang is 01/03/2022 but the Flat Rock Assembly Plant is scheduled to be down the weeks of 2/21, 2/28 & 3/7. It's possible that those weeks are being reserved for export Mustang production.

    Bad News From My Dealer

    Not necessarily true. Many of the commodity restraints this year have been in place for some time. For example, the delay getting orders scheduled with the 5th Wheel Prep (53W) option has been a common and semi-regular constraint for years actually.

    Holiday Shutdown and Shipping

    "Released" just means that it's been released for shipping but still at the plant. The vehicle would need to be actually loaded onto a rail car ready to leave.

    First-time order, from north of the 49th!

    Welcome! I was a delegate for a convention in Winnipeg one summer years ago for the IATSE - International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees. It was strange being on the balcony outside a hospitality suite at midnight watching planes fly into the airport and it was still light out!
  10. Post the VIN number in the Window Sticker Requests forum and I'll see if I can pull it directly from the FordDirect database.

    2022 Nautilus Order

    The date at the bottom of the digital Window Sticker is the date that it was retrieved from Ford's database.

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    Super Duty DRW's always take longer. Not really an issue other than plant capacity, demand vs. supply.

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    The allocation reports only show the regular allocation. The numbers may be adjusted after the COVP incremental allocation is granted and a COVP verified retail order is scheduled but I'd have to look into that.

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    There are a lot of dealerships that don't know what resources are available to help "work" the system.

    2022 Super Duty Orders & Discussion

    Regular allocation still exists but verified retail COVP orders qualify for incremental allocation and priority scheduling which can only help. The incremental allocation can be a big help when a dealership has more retail orders than regular allocation.
