Hi all. New to this so please bear with me. Just bought a 59 Ford Fairlane Galaxie 500. The VIN# IS: B9KS122280. Even Ford in Michigan can't find my manufacture date. Looking for the month in 59 it rolled off assembly. Suggestions?

Why do you need to know that data, if you do not have possession?

I was trying to verify the model because the dealer seemed confused by the dual badging on the car. I got it sorted. Thanks!

Galaxie versus Fairlane 500?

If yes, it was because Ford was kind of a mess back then.
They were bleeding money from Edsel and the Continental Divisions
Comet was going to be introduced as a model for Edsel, so it had no home
Robert McNamara was in top management using a chain saw on the company
And there was an economic down turn going on as well.

The full sized Ford model line up was up for some refresh from the Fairlane intro in 1956. The Galaxie name was added as a trim level for model year 1959. But not at the start of the model year.
