The B5 blue spring specials seem to have been produced in March and April before the plant shutdown May 1rst.(and still closed) I believe the Brampton plant was also shutdown for three weeks in these 2 months due to the parts issue with engine/transmission mounts.
Not a whole lot could have ben made in this small window since the 300's and Chargers are coming off the same line. Being a proud owner of an 2009 Challenger SRT8 B5 Blue 6 speed manual with all the options, I would also like to know production figures so far. For all those waiting for their order, you will have to wait a little longer. Here is what I pulled from the Montreal Gazette site posted June 1rst.
"In Brampton, Ont., union officials there said they don't expect the resumption of plants that produce the Chrysler 300, Dodge Challenger and Charger any time before June 29. Supplier issues — primarily the bankruptcy of SKD that produced floor pans — could hold up efforts to resume production, said Leon Rideout, president of CAW Local 1285."
