    How do you explain that there were only 1598 Golden Tickets issued out of 5930 VINs?

    My thinking was you didn't need a Golden Ticket to get painted stripes or the CFTP, but you did need it to get both. I'm incorrect in thinking that though.

    The only way to get either of those options is with a Golden Ticket. The Golden ticket allocation adds both the CFTP and painted stripes and the customer has the option of deleting one or the other but not both because at that point it becomes a regular allocation. So yes if you have either the CFTP or painted stripes it is a Golden Ticket car.

    I could be wrong...but everything I have read states a GOLDEN TICKET is the CF Track Pack. The painted stripe has zero to do with anything other than being an option.

    By that definition then a Golden Ticket is simply the option to have...
    1. Painted Stripes No CFHP
    2. No Stripes CFHP
    3. Painted Stripes and CFHP

    Can you find a single add for a Golden Ticket without the CFHP?

    There is a difference between the CFTP - Carbon Fiber Track Pack and the CFHP - Carbon Fiber Handling Package. In 2020 there was no CFHP, this was added to the 2021 option list.

    This is for the 2020 GT500 and possibly the 2021 GT500
    I haven't seen anything about the 2021 GT500 CFTP.

    1. Painted Stripes No CFTP
    2. No Stripes CFTP
    3. Painted Stripes and CFTP

    Here is the reply I got back from a friend who owns one.

    "Hi Shane,

    In 2020, some moron came up with the term "golden ticket" to describe an allocation that had the option of the carbon fiber track package and/or painted on stripes.

    I have not heard if there will be painted stripes or a carbon fiber track package in '21. People speculate that the carbon fiber track pack will be available in '21, but so far there is no official word.

    The carbon fiber handling pack is a spin off of the carbon fiber track pack. The car will have painted carbon fiber wheels and a standard swing with gurney flap.

    I'm interested to hear about the painted on stripes for '21. I seriously doubt that they will offer it, but it wouldn't surprise me if they did. It was such a disaster in '20. Quality was crap, Penske had a huge backlog that they didn't manage well, and cars sat around for an eternity due to the problematic outsourced job by Penske."

    From the sail thread

    Can you order a stripe car without CFTP?

    Can you order a CFTP without stripes (sans "golden ticket")?

    The only way to order CFTP AND stripes is with a golden ticket?

    This is very simple. I ordered a 20 GT500 with CFTP and vinyl stripes. My dealer had to have a Golden ticket to have my car get built. I know this because my normal local dealer tried to order one for me without a golden ticket allocation and the order got rejected by Ford. A golden ticket allocation is required to order any of the following:

    A. Any CFTP GT500 (could be with or without painted stripes)
    B. Any GT500 with Painted Stripes

    Allocations for base cars cannot be ordered with the CFTP or painted stripe options.

    Am I getting this right?? With a golden ticket allocation there are these possibilities:
    1 CFTP
    1a.with stripes
    1aa. Painted stripes
    1ab. Vinyl stripes
    1b.without stripes
    2 non CFTP
    2a.with stripes
    2aa.painted stripes
    2ab.vinyl stripes
    2b.without stripes

    You could order options 2ab and 2b without a golden ticket allocation? (So could be considered a "waste of golden ticket")

    So if you can not order 1aa, 1ab, 1b, or 2aa without a golden ticket allocation, why would they not be considered a golden ticket car?

    Why is painted stripes listed as a golden ticket? Is Ford really this limited on painting stripes that they can’t accept as many $10k options as possible?

    Correct. 1aa, 1ab, 1b, and 2aa are all valid Golden Ticket configurations. They are all considered Golden Ticket cars. Think of it this way: the golden ticket "unlocks" the CFTP and painted stripe options, because Ford wanted to limit production volume of those options. Without a golden ticket allocation, you can't order either. As for 2aa, I personally agree that is a waste of a Golden Ticket allocation, but some really wanted it but had no need/want for the CFTP, hence it being an orderable configuration.

    To summarize:
    1 CFTP
    1a.with stripes.
    1aa. Painted stripes. --->Golden Ticket Needed
    1ab. Vinyl stripes. --->Golden Ticket Needed
    1b.without stripes --->Golden Ticket Needed
    2 non CFTP
    2a.with stripes
    2aa.painted stripes. --->Golden Ticket Needed
    2ab.vinyl stripes. --->Golden Ticket Not Needed
    2b.without stripes --->Golden Ticket Not Needed

    A lot of dealers with Golden Tickets sold their allocations to other dealers for big money, a dealer without a Golden Ticket allocation could buy one from a dealer that had one. It not only happened with the Golden Tickets, but with the standard allocations.
