Russ:  it is my understanding that at least up until approximately 1965 
there really wasn't a "model year" to the B.  The cars were dated at time of 
sale (registration).  Hence, if you bought your B in 1962 it henceforth was 
considered a '62 car.  I have registrar's data for NAMGBR and there is a 
blending of reported car "years" and vins.  That is to say: there is no 
clean transition from a "62" to a "63" to a "64" etc.  Sometimes a car may 
have languished on a dealer's lot and not sold until several months after
