Yesterday, I drove out to the Claycomo, MO plant, again.

Nothing but 2020 F150s as far as the eye could see piled up like cord wood. Last week, the local news said that Claycomo has begun building 2021s and I read elsewhere that they complete a new F150 every 60 seconds.

Once there is a vin number and window sticker for a stock order, is there a way to check the actual status of the truck? The VIN lookup tool on fords site is only for retail orders it appears.

The only way most of us 'stock' buyers are checking status is with our dealership..

Do you have a VIN yet?

Once you get the sticker you know you are close. It will also tell you of your build date.

Dealer should be able to email you a tracking status that looks like this (mine below). If he won't do it, call and talk to the sales manager and ask him to have those sent to you at least weekly(Tue is the best day). There is no reason they should not.

I drive by my Ford dealership like a highschool boy driving by his ex girlfriend’s house😂😂

The Claycomo plant is still in the change over process. They built up the last 2020s for about an extra month after Dearborn ceased production.

I would say that’s normal that you don’t see any 2021’s over there yet.

I just peeked at the inventory of my selling dealer
About twelve 2021 trucks in inventory
But down at the bottom where it says STATUS
It says dealer ordered instead of in stock
Checked the window stickers, both from Dearborn and KCM and a few of them won’t be built for a couple of days, but some were built in the middle of October
( going by blend number)

My personal mission here is to locate a vehicle with the Baja Tan interior
I’d really like to see it in person when one appears anywhere within 30 miles of my county line.

Curious where the first actual trucks on dealer lots will be located... hopefully if oktb was reached that could be this wèek.

just think after all of the waiting, some person who hasn’t waited a minute may drive up and leave in their new 21...
