Hey everybody,

Noticed something on my VIN. My elky was built in the 4th week of December,and my elky is an 84 and the owner origional owner first wrote info down the owners manual in January of 1984. My question is was mine built on the last week of December of 1983 but sold as an 84 because it was so close to 1984?? Only thing i can think of?

Thanks guys

If the 10th digit of your VIN is an "E," you have an '84. This can be a little confusing to those who don't understand the industry. Keep in mind that although the Mustang came out in 1964, there are no 1964 Mustangs; they are all 1965's. Another example is the Chevy Citation, which was billed as "the first car of the 1980's." They were first sold in April of 1979.
