  • Body / Glass: Start and stop dates of the 16G8F1/16G8F2 for 1955

    Hello-

    Can someone tell me when production started and stopped for the 1st series Commander Custom 2 door sedans(16G8F1),as well as the 2nd series of the same model?(16G8F2) I am trying to put historical information together on my car for an upcoming show and was wondering what all of the changes were,including the introduction of the wraparound windshield.

    My VIN# is 8848238 - Body# 460 - final assembly date in Vernon,California - 8/12/1955


    Thanks in advance-

      A call to the SNM Achives or perhaps these two issues of TW would help, I don't have copies, someone seeing this thread might check it out and let you know.

        I can't answer your specific questions, but I can tell you that 629 16G8 cars (all body styles) were built in Vernon in August 1955. Production ended in September.
