Ok, i'll try and keep this short. I ordered 3 trucks last summer from 3 different dealers. First one came in and i drove it for 2 weeks until my second one arrived, which was the one i preferred, so i sold my first one to a member here....at no profit BTW.

3 days ago i get an email from Ford that my white PP order was going to be built on 8/22. Frankly i thought that order was dead since no one had spoken to me since last August. This deal was for their only 37" allocation for $5k over msrp. I'm loving my Iconic Silver 2021 and don't want this new 37" truck but i don't want the dealer to have it either and stick it on the market for $20k ADM.

I have a friend who wants it but I'm worried the dealer won't let me just have him buy it. Are there are any strategies you guys know of where he can buy it directly from the dealer? I don't want to free up the cash to buy it, pay taxes and sell it to my friend.
Thanks

So you take up 3 allocation spots and wonder why dealers mark vehicles up. Regardless if you made a profit or not it goes beyond that for a dealer.
Trust me I know FIRST HAND!!!
Take a poll on here and my guess is majority think your move was pretty selfish!!

Thats not selfish in my opinion. I placed one order and got lied to about an allocation for 4 months before placing a second order. And regardless, from the dealers perspective, its only one order. They dont know how many orders a person has. They can either charge a fair price or try to rip people off.

You cant blame a guy for trying to up his chances of getting a truck.

My dealer who I ordered from and put down a $1000 deposit said I had an allocation but 7 months in...nothing! Im glad I got my deposit back! Found a new Raptor on Autotrader that came in the dealer and bought it the next day at a great price!
