Order Numbers

Order Numbers? Actually six letters? Can someone clear this up for me. And does this order number specify where you stand in the production build?

All I can tell you is yes 6 numbers/letters. Mine has both numbers and letters, but I know some others have said theirs is strictly numbers. I would assume that within this #/letter that model, color, options and order # would be involved in this.

Technically, it does specify where you stand in the production order. However, there is nothing you can tell from the number. Meaning, if you look at my order number and compare it to yours, that won't tell you and I anything. The number is simply a reference to a vehicle which, when the orders are pulled and loaded into the GM system, will have a production date. At some point, you will be able to ask your dealer for a status up or maybe even call the 800 number and get the current status.

BTW, I have called this twice to see if I could get any kind of status. The first time they told me to call my dealer and the second time they said they would call me back the next day. That was something like two weeks ago. Any one else have any luck getting a status by calling that number?

Let's clarify this once and for all... (my opinion only from what I've read)

#1-> There is NO STATUS to check on at this point
#2-> There is NO STATUS to check on at this point
#3-> There is NO STATUS to check on at this point

Your (our) 6-digit alpha-numeric code is simply confirmation that you (we) have a pre-order; nothing more, nothing less. There is a lot of misinformation floating around that the pre-orders were to be "pulled" from the dealers to Chevy for production scheduling this month. There is a post here from Fbodfather stating that more likely it will be into January before the orders are pulled. You (we) have until that time to change our orders.

There is no production order at this point. Just because you placed a pre-order on Oct 13th at 9:00:00 when your dealer opened does not necessarily mean your car will be one of the first built. Chevy will prioritize the orders based 1st on any constraints, then by allocation along with shipping logistics. I read yesterday- have nothing to back it up- that the Camaros will be delivered starting on the West coast and moving East. That makes no sense to me. However, I also read that they will try to get cars to many dealers as quickly as possible; i.e. one to each for marketing/visibility purposes. That at least makes some sense but doesn't make me personally happy as doing that will surely delay delivery of mine.

Finally, back to the original question. The order confirmation numbers we got are sequential BUT have nothing to do with production scheduling.

Fbodfather and others please weigh in and clarify this once and for all.

Where did you get the order confirmation number? Was it from the dealer or Chevrolet? A phone call or a letter?

You get it from your dealer when they input the order into GM OrderWORKBENCH. I had mine instantly.

Order Confirmation Number

Thanks. I just talked to the dealer and got mine. 6 letters. I had ordered mine right at closing that night and they inputed the order the next day and never thought that I might want the confirmation number!

order numbers

Ok, heres what i found out from my dealer about ordering an order numbers. He sounded like he knew what he was talking about, (take all this with a grain of salt).-He said order number really doesnt have anything to do with the order in which you get your car. He said it all depends on the material build up on hand for the cars. If he were to guess since the ss orders are vastly out ordering the v6 that the build up would probably be larger in the ss. Also, I asked about the problem with GM financing. He fully expects that bush will help the auto industry. Butt, even if it doesnt happen an GM files for bancruptcy, the lines of cars that will be shut down would be most others not including buick, chevy including camaro would still be made. Again, take this with a grain of salt, but it makes sense.

ordered-ss2/rs rally yellow / black striping / all options included.

My guess is no point calling now because there won't be any status.
Cars don't go into production until 2/16/09 no need to call till next year?
