That's not accurate at all. I got my VIN but could only get it from the dealership. Mine has been in "In Order Processing" state until a few days ago when it changed to In Production (but still not being built for another 4 days) and i've had the VIN since mid-Nov. YMMV.I have no VIN# either. Mine was a late Nov order. However, I did receive a build date of 1 week of Feb. my general sales manager talked to me & said when the Ford ordering system actually shows truck is in a build status I’ll then get a VIN.
