Default thunderbird build date

Hi all and happy new year, I have a question. My 1962 thunderbird has a build date of 08 August. does this mean it was built on August 08 1962, or August 08 1961? The vin number starts 177xxxx. one reason I need to know is I am trying to find a dash pad and I understand it makes a difference what the build date is, thanks.

Joe there are two (2) areas on our site that you can research to answer your question. First on the home page is Thunderbird Technical Resource Library link that has a lot of info.

Second on the home page there is a black " search " button. Hit it / open it up and enter the words " build date " and the you can see and read the threads / posts from previous dicsussions related to your question. Good luck.

Your car was scheduled to be built August 08, 1962. It is the 0,77x,xxx-th '62 T-bird built, but the actual build date may have been one or two days different, depending on production flow.
