What was your actual build date vs scheduled date?
My 73 converts 45th birthday is coming up. The build sheets indicate 05 April (73) (in blocks 39, 40, & 41) which corresponds to the "Scheduled for Build Date" on my Marti Report. The "Bucked" date on the Marti is 4/06/73. The "Actually Built" date is 4/09/73. So the build was delayed by 4 days from the scheduled date.

So I guess my cars birthday is April 9th. That was a Monday in 1973. 

Post up you stats so we can see who has the longest delay on their build.

My Mach 1 was scheduled for build on 2/11/72 and actually built on 2/2/72 - nine days ahead of schedule.

Mine was scheduled for 11/16/70 and actually built on 11/30/70, 2 weeks late.
Mine was bucked December 6th 1971, scheduled for built December 8th and actually built December 7th, one day ahead of schedule. Released December 8th.
Nothing spectacular there.
What surprised me however was the fact that it took so long in between the order and the build date.
It was ordered in February 1971 so it took 10 months for it to be built.
Add the export to it and it wasn't registered as a new car here in Luxembourg until a year after the order was placed.
That's a looooong wait for a new car.

No Officer...I really don't know how fast I was going, my speedometer stopped at 140!
My Grandé was scheduled for build July 6, 1973 and, yes, actually build July 6th, 1973! So I guess I ain't gonna win this "longest delay" contest ;-)
Very interesting! Perhaps we should also have a "contest" for earliest actual build date. I won't be a winner there either, but just a thought.
My car stats are; ordered and serialized on 2/12/71, bucked on 2/17/71, scheduled for build, 2/24/71, actual build date, 2/22/71, 2 days ahead of schedule.
So there!
Bucked 4/16/73, scheduled 4/19/73, built 4/19/73.

73 Grandé H Code. Headman long tube headers, T-5 Transmission, 3.70 Traclok, Lowered 1" all around, Aussie 2v heads w/ 2.19 intake, 1.71 exhaust, screw in studs, full roller cam 608/612 lift 280/281 duration LSA 112, Quick Fuel 750 CFM double pumper, AirGap intake.
