New Order wait times?

I recently ordered a new 2018 Mustang GT and I'm wondering how long most people are waiting for a VIN or waiting for actual delivery if you've got that far. I ordered a month ago and still no VIN so getting frustrated.

It's amazing nobody here is willing to share any info about ordering new Mustangs. I waited almost 6 weeks just to receive a VIN number which was supposed to take about 2 weeks. Yesterday I pulled the plug on the order. My dealer cannot tell me when the VIN will come. It's amazing to me there is no phone number at the factory that the dealer can call and say "what's up with no VIN number"?
Anyway there are some cars on the dealers lots across the country. Searching Cars.com helped me find one with all the options I wanted. Hope to get it soon.

Unfortunately this site is no longer the source for new mustang ordering help. Hop on over to mustang6g.com for the best info on ordering a new Mustang. There you'll find tons of threads and good info on the new Mustangs, like you uses to find here. My how times have changed in the 6 years since I ordered my last pony. Back then this forum really was the source for offering. Alas Ford reps no longer participate here, but on g6 they do! They have a dedicated Ford rep to help with orders, just like we uses to have Deyshia here.

I ordered my 2018 on August 7, 2017. It was delivered February 7, 2018. Seven months exactly. I didn't follow it on COTUS; that's too nerve-wracking. Also too busy trying to put enough scratch in the bank to buy it.

I submitted a factory for an ingot silver 2018 EcoBoost Premium with a tan interior on Jan. 25. My order first showed up in the online order tracker (Ford Custom Order Tracking | ordertracking.ford.com) On Feb. 22 as "In Order Processing" with an estimated delivery date of May 24.

If it takes four months to delivery a factory order, fine. But please tell me the truth when I am deciding whether to place an order rather than telling me that it will be delivered in 6-8 weeks.

Just venting. It sounds like some of you can relate to my frustration.

I am in the same boat. Well technically I ordered a 2019 Mustang GT Velocity Blue with Magneride 4 weeks ago and I still haven't received a VIN number or confirmation code at the dealership yet. Do cars equipped with Magneride take a longer time? I spoke with my dealership but they have no clue when they will receive the VIN number or confirmation code. I called Ford yesterday and spoke with them about my situation and asked if it was normal for the dealership to have not received a confirmation code after 1 month and they told me it was not normal. I just want to check the vin window sticker before the car arrives to make sure it is built to the specifications I wanted such as Spoiler Delete. This is the first time I have ordered a car from the factory so I am a little anxious

It must depend on the area and dealership you use to order. I got one in 3 weeks from order to delivery.

I just noticed this thread. I can share my experience when I ordered a 2017 Mustang GT Premium.

Ordered on 3/31/2017, received by Ford on 4/5/2017. They told me about 6-8 weeks at the time. The dates below were from the old COTUS website. It no longer exists, but Ford has a new link to track factory orders.

https://shop.ford.com/vehicleordertracking

VIN assigned on 5/18/2017

In Order Processing on 6/6/2017

Built on 6/13/2017

Shipped on 6/29/2017

Delivered to Ford dealer 7/14/2017

Picked up by me on 7/15/2017

So in my case it took a little over 15 weeks from order to getting my car.
