Why Year of Manufacture not identical with Year of Registration?
Because in all documents which using for export procedure is printed Date of first registration in Japan, NOT a Date of Manufacture.
In fact Date of Manufacture can be different with Date of Registration.
As example vehicle is manufactured in December 1999, but it was registered for using in Japan at January 2000.
So in all documents which we have for this vehicle it will be January 2000. Not December 1999.
In different countries customs can check exactly date in catalogue base or by chassis number, or can use Japanese document for registration locally.
So we require to you before you place a bid (or confirm to buy vehicle from our stock / one price / special yard), please check exactly date of manufacture on the vehicle by yourself with your auction access or send us Request in advance we will do it for you. Please note for Honda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Hino trucks we need to use special request, and it can taking bit more time than for other vehicles.
Actually for all other cars like Toyota, Mazda, Nissan, etc you can check year of manufacture by yourself without problems. Just use our japanese web catalogue.
