DOES THIS MAKE SENSE?

lOOK AT THE VINs.

#0587 ... Milford OH 1zvht82h285-162123
#2301 ... Alton IL THE VIN: 1ZVHT82H385-162261

138 VIN difference

Gotta be some missing Bullitt numbers?

The cold air intake on 08 HG 2301:

Doesn't this look different than the earlier numbers?

As Vicki posted the VIN has nothing to do with when it is built. Vin numbers are not consecutive as they relate to the assembly process. As Mr T said this is to prevent getting 20 verts or GT 500 in a row.

Different from the PP photos, or early production run/low s/n Bullitts?

Looks like a hood latch down sensor in white near the left (drivers side) of the radiator wall. Or is that an airflow sensor?

Good sharp photo in any case. I caught myslef looking for the s/n sticker on the strut tower...DOH!

Again the VIN does not go with the Bullitt number. It all just depends on what body they pull at what time. A Bullitt body with 158079 could have been closer to the door so they selected that body before the lower numbered car. Basically the body is just another part pulled from the shelf in no particular order.

What are you thinking is different? I looked at few pictures from eBay of earlier number cars and it looks the same to me

They don't assign VINs to bodies that way. An order gets a VIN assigned before a body is built I believe, or at least before the VIN gets stamped to it.
But vehicles are not built/orders not filled in order of VIN number

OK, I understand.

BUT

Are there two other VINs so close together associated with two Bullitt Numbers so far apart?

Isn't this really odd? Is it just that there are more than a thousand missing Bullitt numbers?

I'm curious as well. But when the '01's came off the line the stickers were put on one after another. With the '08's having the VIN engraved in the ID plate along with the Bullitt number, I wonder how they coordinate that. I don't think there is an engraver sitting there and doing the ID plate as they come off the line.

My guess is that maybe someone screwed up the ID plates and now, to keep production going, they have to put on the high Bullitt numbers to keep the correct VINs.

The error will be corrected at some point and we will see the 600s up to 2200s at a later date.

Maybe we should start a pool to see who can guess how far off the final Bullitt number will be to the actual final Bullitt production. The 01s were off by about 20.

Maybe there will be a 9000 Bullitt number with the production of 7700 bullitts. Back in 01, stickers must have been easier.

Here is another oddity. This must be where the path went astray.

#0587 ... Milford OH VIN 1zvht82h285 162123
#2292 ... Alliance OH VIN 1ZVHT82H985 162121

Still looking for an answer to this one. Greg's report on numbering info doesn't seem quite right.

Again you cannot relate the VIN number to the build number. Think of the VIN numbers as a lottery. They are pulled from a pot. What comes out coes out. So you could have an even larger spread than the one you are showing.

But you should be able to relate the build date to the build number. Which is why I have a email into the guys at Ford.

It also appears that the '08 Bullitts are being built at a much greater production rate than the '01's. The '01's were built at about a 4 vehicles per hour rate.
