    First Model year for 1957? No Guessing please. 2014 or 2015?

    Even though the 1957 Edition started selling in 2014, were some 2014 Model Years and others 2015 Model Years?
    Someone in California is trying to sell me a 1957 purchased mid 2014 and calling it a 2015. Carfax and every other VIN check service labels his VIN as a 2014 Model. What will DMV call it?
    If my insurance ever needs to total it, which year will they base the value on?
    I know that most cars of any make manufactured & sold in the fall are legitimately the next years model.
    Anyone know for sure what happened with the first 1957 group to arrive in the USA? I see an Arizona dealer selling a 2014 model.
    Thanks to anyone close to the situation that really knows.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Thanks to all for great info below! CASE CLOSED.
    The freelance reseller in the LA area was misinformed and insisted the car, while sold in July 2014 was a 2015 Model.
    When I finally got to meet the owner and see the Reg & Title, the owner corrected the sales agent.
    It was a 2014 on all documents.
    Several Fiat dealer staff and an insurance agent believed it was a 2015, even given the VIN.

    http://www.fiat500usa.com/2013/08/de...t-500-vin.html showed it as a 2014.
    Calif DMV & AAA said 2014.

    Yes, the Cabrio arrived as a 2015 Model.

    This plain vanilla 1957 Edition hard top had some curb rash on body and 3 rims. We paid around $11K private party with 20K miles.
    Thanks again for the forum time & wisdom!

    The 1957 Edition came out in 2014. What does the VIN say on the car you are looking at? The VIN tells you the year. Period.

    For example, my old 2012 500 Prima Edizione was built in Dec 2010, but the vin is 3C3CFFBR5CT****** indicating the 2012 model year.

    Thanks, I would like to think that the VIN# is definitive, yet at least one Fiat staff in California thought cars sold in 2014 were 2015 models.
    Fiat500usa says its a 2014 model year.
    I'm still confused and money is on the table. Maybe I'll get more answers when AAA, DMV and FIAT are open in the morning.
    Is anyone you know who purchased a 1957 in 2014 calling it a 2014 model?

    Whatever is on the title is what I, and I'm sure the insurance company would go with. The title is what counts, not the delivery date.

    The VIN is what everyone goes by. Here are some links to other 2014 1957 Editions, you can compare VINs.

    https://www.cargurus.com/Cars/invent...ting=151509371

    The "E" is for 2014.

    And here is a 2015 Convertible 1957 Edition, with an "F" in the VIN for 2015
