I know that the 16" SEL wheels and tires were an issue preventing allocation for my order the same week that it was placed for the date 3 weeks in the future when it was to have been built, however the following week the dealer had allocation for them + the car and it was scheduled and sequenced with a vin in week 2.
You are correct. It was built already. It has a build date in etis and at one time said "in transit on my salesladys computer. She e-mailed someone higher up (not sure of a title) and got that in response to her asking where my car was.

Still no sticker yet. Shows in ETIS but no data is present. I did see where someone with a number 8000 ahead of me already has a sticker and build date of today. If my math is right I am roughly 9 days away from build and roughly 5 from getting a sticker. I still check daily though, lol. What a dweeb!

The last day to order was the 15th or 17th and they're supposed to start building the 2013 in July so it can't be too far away.

That timing came from the official Ford fleet order timing, however it was subject to change, although its possible that the dealer converted a stock order for your retail customer order as they would still have had time.

Initially the end date to order a 12 was to have been 5/14/12, but it seems they wanted to move that date forward 10 days, at least on paper.

My dealer had 9 on order and added mine as the 10th so they may have allowed them to add a car, I dunno.
