    You see in various articles that the F430 production started in 2004.
    Does anyone on here own a 2004 430?

    The earliest you see for sale on eBay or Hemmings is a 2005 model year.

    Were the 430s made in 2004 sold as 2004 model year cars or were they sold as "early 2005" model year cars?

    I'd be curious what the 10th character in the VIN number is for a 2004 F430.

    There are no '04 U.S. F430's, don't know about the rest of the world.

    You will not find any 2004 430's for sale. However, going by the VIN number it is easy to confuse early 2005 cars for 2004's because you will noticed that some 430's have lower VIN's than late Challange Stradale's which were all 2004's.
