Got Lucky. Placed an order with an Alabama Ford Dealer at MSRP yesterday. Shadow Black, no stripe with Track Pack. Unfortunately they are a small town dealer. They do not expect to be allocated another car.
I'm doing cartwheels. Was getting frustrated with the process.

I started working with my local dealer in March and got at MSRP when he could get official pricing and the DORA info from Ford
With tax and title transfer $54120.00:)

I bought mine at MSRP. They are out there. My dealer was Eddins Ford in Madison, VA. My car was his only allocation for 2016. Not sure if he has sold his 2017 allocation yet. General Sales Manager's name is Jonathan Bradley and he's a great guy. Also bought my 2013 GT500 from him at MSRP.

It's nice to hear there are still dealerships out there that sell at MRSP knowing they could get more by putting it on ebay. A happy customer is normally a repeat customer :)

I highly doubt anyone will get an R close to sticker unless the dealer somehow wins the R lottery and has a pervious commitment for the car at, lets say $5000 over which my local dealership in Wayne Pa, told me.
They had no idea they were getting an R, so some guy may be getting it at 5 over. Dealer is pissed as they are leaving atleast $30,000 on the table.
I agree small dealers are your best bet. I am at $2000 over but got very lucky on a ordered car that guy bailed on. Small dealer in NE Pa.

I have been in and around the new and used car businesses since I was 14 and am now 60. Trust me, there isn't much if anything I haven't seen a dozen time before. The GT350 launch and early pricing history is and will fall into the pattern that ALWAYS occurs with this stuff. The guys who wanna be first get bent over, supply increases as more cars roll off the line. MSRP pricing is normally there for the sharp buyer who is able to segregate reality from emotional nonsense that is propagated through the enthusiast community by the retailers and early adopters. Do yourself a huge favor and ignore all the rookies on forums like 6g where you have quite a few guys more than willing to spread total nonsense about what one will have to pay for these cars. Give the retailers you speak with who have in stock GT350(s) an offer regardless of what ever idiotic asking price they have along with a contact number and leave it at that. The you go high, I go low will begin soon if not right at that moment. Good Luck and remember that your first day, first week, first month, etc. will be just as sweet as the sucker's who allowed himself to be bent over. ADM money is NEVER recoverable and is essentially thrown into the lap of your avaricious retailer, why not keep it in your wallet.

I think I'm one of the lucky ones who paid MSRP for mine although I ordered it the first of September I still haven't taken delivery...very frustrating!

Hey 6T5 if you can get an R at 10 over you better take that to the bank...That is a steal...I know you posted that a long time ago..
What did you end up doing.....I would buy an R at 10 over all day....

Yes you are lucky to pay MSRP. I agree with some of what you said and yes if you really dig around the country you may be able to buy one for $2000 - $5000 over. MSRP is now truly very difficult... surely for the fortunate ones. Dealers now know what the cars are pulling. I also have been around the car biz for a long time and have seen this phenomena before. However I must say I believe this car with the daunting amount of R&D in the project resulting in a truly unique GT350 (not a GT with stick on crap and a chip) will end up in the Ford GT category regarding solid long term value. Yes, a selfish wish but this car and motor are that well done...We all can only hope...I am at $2000 over with no production date yet...I am very lucky...............
