You haven’t posted your location. It helps us to help you.

In the US...

It was quite common in the 50s and 60s for the selling dealer to supply registration papers for a new car based upon the date of sale, rather than date of manufacture. As the 2600s, and the earlier 2000s, were quite expensive it was common for them to linger in dealer inventory for a year or more before finding a buyer.

A bank would loan money at a better rate for a “new” car than for one a year or two old.

I recently had the registration and Title on my 1959 2000 changed to match the production date rather than the 1961 it had been carrying for decades.

Yes, Fusi shows it was a 1965 based on your chassis number. A lot of jurisdictions would title a car in the year it was sold rather than the year it was made. You might be able to take your title or paperwork down to the motor vehicle department and show them a copy of Fusi and get them to change it to 1965.

When I reregistered mine with the correct year of production, they were persuaded by the Museo Storico document showing date of production and first point of delivery. I also had Fusi tables showing the ranges of serial numbers by year. Of course, Fusi is notoriously inaccurate, but government bureaucracies are persuaded by the weight of the paperwork, not the provenance.

I agree with Don: The FCA Heritage Certificate is the most authoritative information one can get about the cars. See their web page here (disable ad blocker, if you have one, to see the form to be filled out). In times of Covid-19, one wonders how long it would take for them to respond, if they respond at all.

In the meantime, Fusi's production numbers can be found here.

You're right. Posts from the duplicate thread in "History" are now merged into this thread. In the future, it's better to use the "Report" function to point this stuff out - the moderators are more likely to see your comments when they are handled that way.

Hej och grattis till inköpet.
Din bil blev registrerad i Sverige först 1/1 1968 chansen finns att den kom hit begagnad. Dåtidens bilregister var inte alltid så noga med att ange om bilen var importerad begagnad eller inte. Har du kopia på första registreringsbevisen med gamla länsnummert tex A 8888? Där kanske står om bilen är importerad begagnad. Det finns fler 2600 i Sverige som har årsmodell flera år efter tillverkningsår en tanke är att bilarna var svårsålda och stod lääänge innan dom blev sålda.
Lycka till
Hälsningar
Björn i Trelleborg

Tack för svaret björn, jag ska få alla papper från förra ägaren, får se hur man gör med alla handlingar för att få till rätt årsmodell på regbeviset =) en fråga bara, hur står sig dessa bilar rent prismässigt i Sverige? Bilen har ju stått i ett garage i över 20 år, karossen är hel och visst finns det rost på de typiska platserna som Alfa är kända för, men det är verkligen ingen rosthög i den bemärkelsen =)
