Hello All! I have a 2017 GT350R chassis HR687. Does anyone have the final breakdown on the 2017 production number totals and production of each specific model and option pkgs yet? Ford SVT told me there were 942 R's made and about 6000 GT's. Also, what is a good street tire to run on an R since no other company makes the R rear tire size? Can I run the front tire size on the rear of the R? I have seen phohot of guys running the 325-30-19 on the rear but it looks too large for the wheel well. I wanted to go with the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S. Thanks!

I hit enter to quick. Where are the best locations for a jack and subsequent jack stands?

@Biggest for a 2017 anything between 5 and 10 over is a good price but you'll have tough time finding the color you want. Popular color/stripes combo can easily go for 15/20 over. I'm not sure if I would even try to buy a 2018. Being the last production year I'd be surprised to see anything below 20 over sticker. My advice is to be patient and keep calling around all over the country. I got mine at 7 over sticker out of pure luck. Every single dealer that I spoke with before finding mine would not go below 15. All you need is one lucky situation where they are trying to get rid of it

@  panzer69 : (29 January 2018 - 01:15 PM)

yeah i agree with that, my dealer is selling his 60k above

IF YOU FOUND A GT350R AT MSRP ITS PROBABLY ALREADY SOLD TO SOMEONE ELSE .... JUMP ON IT ... DO NOT PAST GO DO NOT COLLECT $200

@  Biggest : (27 January 2018 - 10:10 AM)

Hey Guys, im new to this forum(registered now) Can any of you give me an idea of what a good price for a new 2017 Gt350R is? I have one on hold in New Jersey, Black with white stripe and electronic package, MSRP is $68020, I have not found one at MSRP so my question is whats a good/decient price on a 2017? Thanks

Am I correct in saying that the 2016 GT350s all came with an engine builders plate on the right side of top of the engine?  It'd be about 3" X 5" affixed to a special area on what appears to be part of the plastic airbox or something system just forward to the Monte Carlo brace.

 

The reason I ask is because I've heard that they all did...and guess what?  

MINE DIDN'T!   :rant2:   :swear:

 

In the area where I think it would go I see what appears to be a worm-crawl of adhesive.

Mine either missed it at the factory, fell off during shipment or somehow fell off after I took delivery.

 

I appreciate your help in determining the reality.

You are correct. There should be a plate with an engraved signature of both engine builders on it. They build the engines on the niche line at Romeo engine plant. They work in teams of two and then sign the plate at completion.

Thanks, Don!  And thanks to MustBD2.

I was able to get a replacement Builders' Plate!  Something the dealership (Jordan Ford in San Antonio) couldn't or wouldn't do.

Ford came through!

My 2016 Shelby GT350 is WHOLE once again!

Its amazing what good will a store could earn if they just took a few minutes to help someone with a need that might be out of left field

 

Glad you got it !
