Is this information promissing?

I placed my order with the dealer on Tuesday, June 8th

2011 Mustang GT Premium, 401A, Manual Trans
Performance White with Brick Red w/Cashmere
Electronics Package
Rearview camera
Comfort Package
Security Package
HID head lamps
Brembo Package
3.73 Axle

I called Ford CS Monday, June 14th and was told order "Clean" and "in processing"
I called today Wednesday, June 16th and was given VIN# and told it was "in production"

Sounds too good to be true... Your thoughts?

Persoanlly, I think you're good to go! Sounds like Ford has all the first production run bugs ironed out and is keeping the assembly line moving!
I feel sorry for the "early order" guys. All this is why I'm waiting until "Job 2" in mid August before I order.

Seems like these newer orders are going through faster since perhaps the initial problem has been sorted out on the production line. Its retrofitting the first batch that seems to be screwing the early adopters. Just my uneducated guess.

This is an email I got from my salesman, don't know if it helped or not...

" Just wanted to update you on whats happening. We ordered (Order was input 6/8) your Mustang through our store, XXXXX Ford, to expedite the production...They have fewer orders in the system, so this should give us the fastest turn around time with Ford. Sold Orders with a signed buyers order receive the highest priority of production from Ford."

Ok demand that your dealer shows you the DORA. This is the order receipt confirming that Ford did get the order. No DORA = No order = No Vin = no car.

Once you have the DORA, make a copy, and call customer service. This is what it looks like:

sounds about right

On a side note you didn't happen to be at the Car meet this past weekend at 1431/183A. I had the only 5.0 there and was parked next to a Ford GT and someone was telling me how they just ordered a new 5.0

Wow.. your dealer is not very cooperative... if you decide to cancel make sure you get your deposit back in full, call Ford to let them know what happened and post a review on Yelp or something similar so people know what you went thru.
