First F-150 rolls off the line Friday after production downtime

- Production has resumed for one of the top-selling vehicles in the country. 

Production for the Ford F-150 has picked back up Friday after it was halted for just over a week because of a lack of supplies. 

A fire at a parts facility near Lansing caused the supply shortage and forced the shutdown. Production has resumed at Dearborn Truck Plant. The photo above is of the first F-150 rolling off the line at the plant Friday morning. 

Production is expected to restart Monday at Kansas City Assembly Plant. 

The Ford team also has successfully repaired the Super Duty supply chain, with production slated to begin at Kentucky Truck Plant by Monday as well.

In all, this means 7,000 people are going back to work.
