They don’t go against the floor plan but the VIN has already been attached to a dealer. Unless Ford makes an unprecedented decision to reallocate these VINs to another dealer the trucks still are assigned to the ordering dealer. The trucks would all be complete in a matter of days. The fly in the ointment is the monumental task of transporting all of these trucks. It takes 20-30 days in transit for the production now. There is NO additional trucking. How does Ford plan to get them shipped?I have been reading other forums who have some dealership employees posting more information on the topic. Ford will still 'own' these vehicles and not charge any floorpan costs to the dealer. As they are still owned by Ford, there would be no tax to be paid as well.
In another forum they're (dealership) told that since these vehicles were incomplete, there was to be no showing of the vehicle to any potential customer as well. This may be due to the fact that all the plastic panels are not closed up and would look unsightly, who knows, but that they were forbidden from any demoing of the vehicle at all. I suspect dealerships like the one I use would keep them in the back row near where they used to keep the cars going to auction / waiting on service to get new parts.
