Does anyone in the know have any idea if Dearborn is up and running custom orders yet or have the "OK to Sell" or whatever the term is??

 

I have a 18 King Ranch I ordered back on 27 May and anxious I guess. Have not been scheduled or assigned a VIN yet. I was hoping to have a VIN by now where I could keep track of it on CUTOS.

 

Any info would be much appreciated!

 

Thanks

 

Bob

The "OK to Buy" status has been reached only for orders with the 3.3L and 3.5L engines so far.

Does OK to Buy mean that those units are approved for release and shipping to dealerships

or is it more to dow with receiving orders form dealerships?

The "OK to Buy" usually coincides with a shipping release along with the start of retail order scheduling for those models. It has nothing to do with Ford receiving orders from dealerships as Dealers can place all order types after the USOB (Unscheduled Order Bank) opens.

After ok to buy vehicles are shipped directly from the line and sold orders are scheduled to be built. Previously built vehicles are inspected and repaired if necessary before shipping.
