Sedan ger det ju hela historien en extra knorr att det hänger på hur man räknar. Bilar registrerade som 1968 års modell, eller bilar tillverkade 1968?
In the case of the automotive industry exists three determining formulation of products. :
1 . Manufacturing date – the actual date of manufacture of the car, in the past never represented in the car documents.
2 . MY model year, – in most of car companies the new model year were released after works sommer holiday break , generally from September.
3 . date of first registration– that is Beginning of exploitation
I did analysis of the production of the model 96 in 1968, according to VIN
In 1968, the numbers are 470001 – 507018, it means was produced 37017 units, that is about 9255 units per quarter. My Saab 96 2T 68 has a VIN – 505735, which is a 35734-th car built in 1968, that is to say the third quarter of production because the fourth quarter began with the production of MY 1969. This is confirmed with Austrian Einzelgenehmigungs Bescheid, document providing for ownership and entitlement to the registration of the vehicle, it was issued on 22 July 68. At the beginning of September the first car registration in Vienna.
I am currently undergoing restoration that car, which is made at my friends in Kańczuga Poland.
With the help of uncle google-translator you can read some about it and watch some photos.
