I got mine by calling the FORD number 1-800-334-4375, have your info ready....they have always been helpful and polite......oh, wait for the mach e prompt.....I got my VIN from them, called dealer for build date....good luckWhen in the buying process can you get a VIN and what are the steps to get it?
Your dealer either doesn’t know how or isn’t bothering to look.I have had my build week (1/4/21) for more than two weeks now. Called the dealer yesterday for a vin. They looked and said it wasn't available and wouldn't be until the car was actually being built.
I explained the experience of all of those on this site and the dealer didn't really have a response. He just said it wasn't available now and he didn't expect it until early in January. Oh, well. Maybe I will try the Ford helpline.
I am sure it is the former. He took the time to "check again" and told me what he was seeing. Unless he was straight lying, I think he just wasn't sure where to look.Your dealer either doesn’t know how or isn’t bothering to look.
Because there are no vehicles in production without a VIN. That is separate from a dealer not providing a VIN.My dealer rep has been selling cars and trucks for Ford since the 90s. He said that when an order is put into the production process, a VIN is created, he has never seen that not be the case. The day that my Mach Drop order appeared on WBDO there was a VIN. He was surprised when I told him that people were told their car was in production but with no VIN yet.
