This is about the right time frame they should start to appear. That is really good news. I checked on mine from 5/23 and it is not available yet - too far out.

I also talked to my dealer this week, he noted he thought their mannequin had been built but wasn't released for shipping yet. I think that also is the same status most have heard.

now, if we can just 'decifer' those codes, such a CA26, CONVOY, etc...and even 'Special Order' : )
CONVOY is transportation by 18 wheeler
Special Order, is all our orders vs Dealer inventory would not show that phrase.

CA26, not sure but I'll take a stab ...... it has to do with a location code for where the transport will pick up his load of vehicles, or that is the vehicles short ID code for loading & transport.

Look at the last 4 digits of the blend (top middle) to find your build date. Ray O'Vac is being built on 4/14.
Correct, it is my understanding that the "Blend Date" is the date where the chassis and body meet on the assembly line to go through final assembly.

Unless the Lightnings are "different", I don't think that's the case. See attached. My Explorer ST "blend date" is a couple months before the date at the bottom.

I had also heard blend date was when the two parts were built back together, however a google found this on another forum - "Blend date is when your order is electrically organized into the build schedule."

No - thinking we are about 5 weeks early for that.

Anyone with 5/23 build week was able to get the Window Sticker?
I've been checking everyday since the beginning of March. Perhaps ill take a break and wait for 5 weeks out as GDN suggests..

I’ve been obsessively checking since this thread started for my 5/2/22 production date. Judging by my vin # I should relax for a bit.
Check after the 18th of April
