Dealership needs to pull my credit for placing order

Dealership requires a $1,000 deposit, and also wants to run my credit report for placing a hellcat order, is it normal?

I am not using their finance, not sure whether this is appropriate.

So if it is a compliance requirement then why doesn't every dealership require a credit pull to order a car?
Because it’s not. You have a lying dealership if they say that. What they are really doing is two things.
1) I want to see if you’re a bum and can afford it or I’m wasting my time.
2) if you’re not a bum I want to see how high your credit is so I can dig the knife in a little deeper.

That’s 100% why they do it and also why I tell them to buzz off.
