    First time "building" a new car. I signed the paperwork with the dealership back on January 10th, 2016. I received the paperwork with the VON, but I was told just last week that production still hasn't started. I am just checking to see what other buyers have experienced. Once production has started, what is the typical build time? Has anyone else purchased their Hellcat from Woodhouse in Blair, NE? I'm just anxious for the car to arrive......just like everyone else probably felt waiting for theirs as well. Thank you!

    You're in the same boat as alot of people who only have a VON. Some people have been waiting alot longer only to be told their car still hasnt been scheduled for prod.

    You should find another hellcat and purchase it, cancel this one.

    Plenty of reputable dealers out there... No reason to take a risk of getting a Hellcat in 2016.

    My dealer has allocation and can probably get you one in 2 months time. Where are you located? There are cars sitting in dealer lots as we speak...

    For the 2015's if you got a VON you were not guaranteed a car. There were a lot of us that waited up to a year only to find out our VON was cancelled. After that fiasco, I believe Dodge is only allowing dealers to assign a VON if there is an allocation. While some dealerships seem to be in the dark as to when there allocation will arrive, I believe if you have a VON, your car will be built. That said, it was definitely sound advice to find another dealership with a car for a 2015. If it is important to you to get the options you want and have a relationship with a particular dealer, then wait it out. RS said that March is going to be a record month for Hellcat production.

    I am in Omaha, Nebraska. I'm looking for specific options.....Ivory White Tri-Coat, sunroof, Sepia, 6spd, and Brass Monkey wheels.

    Just spoke to Chrysler. They can locate the VON, but it has been in BG status for a while. They were going to escalate my case to see why it hasn't been updated. I hope to have some more info this week.

    It depends on what month your dealer had the allocation for also. Ordered mine in Jan for a Feb allocation. My Cat was just built on 3/8, waiting for it to be shipped now.

    Ordered mine Jan 13 came in Feb 23. Did your dealer have a January allocation? If not did they use their February ?

    From my understanding, they used a January allocation. The Priced Order Confirmation (POC) shows a February production option under the Sales Code description (5T2).

    I ordered my hellcat on Jan 13th. It was in bg status for month and a half. Went to d1 finally 3 weeks ago and now is in "I" status. Maybe a week or so to finally arrive. It def depends on allocation for your dealer, they unfortunately were not honest with you about the time, in effort to get the sale.
    Other factors are color choice and options choice also. There was a time late last year that they only filled A8 orders to keep up with demand to fill allocation
    Then we have dealers that adm the price which is total horsesht
