For as long as I can remember (and I'm willing to bet I remember loner back than you do ) the new models have always come out between August and October the year before. There'* always the oddball special releases, of course (64 1/2 Mustang for example)
My dad had a 63 1/2 Galaxie 500 XL.

That would be a 92.... 91 Production ended early... 92 models were out as early as June/july 91....lol

That is because they weren't far enough along in design/engineering stuff to pass GM crash regulations for a schedule that would allow production in 83 so they had to skip the 1983 production year.

mine was made in Aug 95 I believe.

Mine has 07/04 in the door jamb and its a 2005 SLE, because it has the right body style lol. Yes it is common to start the model year early, very early look at the new Tahoe and Yukon there are some 07'* buit in 2005!
