No. VIN is assigned at scheduling, not production. Ford does release monthly sales and production statistics.

by Ford's corporate delivered numbers to wall street, I would say that about 6,000 or so LIGHTNINGS have made it out... probably not including the majority of the ones built in July

yes, there have been many PROs delivered to us customers, and my PRO is coming next week...
You’re missing the point. Over 45,000 pros have been ordered thru registration, delivered less than 100 and most likely will only deliver about 100 a month do the math sure they’ll be many delivered two or three per state Reservation to mix it up. The vast majority of the pros are going to large dealer Corporate sales. Only four or five out of 10 built will be going to customers. and the build rate for the pro is just 20%, they build it at a loss for fleet sales. The average wait will be 3 to 4 years. That’s just the way it goes, I’m glad you have a reservation build date that means you’re lucky but the vast majority of us will be waiting a very long time for a Pro. I have a reservation for a Pro and I’ll just be waiting it out.

yes, it's the luck of the draw no matter how many they do, or don't, build... but, it's not the only trim in the line of LIGHTNINGS - they aren't going to mass produce a small money maker when they can mass produce big money makers - like the Lariat. Those who want a cheaper version might not like it, but you can't blame a for-profit company doing what they do to remain strong in the business.
I get that folks are bummed, but the reality is that most dealers also don't have the 'basic' level trucks sitting on their lots, either. They have King Ranch flavors, and Platinums, and Lariats... very, very few others.
