Hi everyone. Along the lines of "Its always tough when we want something so bad and have to wait", how does Ford schedule production of our 2013 Boss' orders; first come first serve as the orders are recv'd, color batch, or simply pull an order # out of a hat :). February 27th is loomin closer! Thanks!

There was a specific allocation process by dealer and quarter. Each dealer knows how many cars they were allocated and which quarter each allocation will be built.

Yes, but they are often not forthcoming with that information.
 
I don't know, maybe someone here who works for Ford can find out. However, if the dealer won't tell you, it might be a sign to walk away and find another one. I had some trouble getting one ordered, and eventually lucked out finding one at a dealer that the buyer had backed out (couldn't get credit) so they were motivated.

What state are you in? Maybe someone knows a good dealer. The one I bought from said they have 2 early ones coming this year and would do MSRP on Boss and 5k over on LS if it was someone I sent over. I wish I had tried them earlier, I wouldn't have had to wait until 2 months ago to get one, but they are far enough away I didn't bother to try.

I just got the same build date March 12, 2012. I wonder if there are any other out there with a build date on or around the 13th?
Does anybody know if they are in fact starting to start the 2013 later this month or in March?

Paul, the first build week reported right now is Feb. 27th. I know, because my car is one of them. ;D
 
If a dealer has a legitimate allocation(s), They know what quarter the build date for their allocation is scheduled for & should be able to relay that info to you...simple as that. If they cannot furnish that info to you, you need to find a dealer who can. Once you get a vin#, your car is 4-6 weeks away, depending on how far away from the factory you are. I ordered my Boss 4/8/11 & didn't get it till 10/5/11 because it was a 3rd qtr allocation. The allocation quarter is the key to when your car will be built. the date you put your order in has nothing to do with the build date.
