So if the dealer had 55 allotted and you were the 3rd, you would have a number of 3. If you were 51st, you would have 51. However, this is up to the dealer and may not assign priority numbers and all of them could be given 1 which I believe equates to random in GM's system (but possible date ordered or something).
The manager at my dealarship did tell me that they assign the priority numbers to each customer as you say above. I am #2 because I was the 2nd person to put a deposit down on one. I guess I never considered that a dealership would want to assign #1 priority to all their orders. That would really tick me off if I was one of the first to order and #12 had the same priority as me!
