I know that you can get the manufacturers lists for some cars.

My friend has an old '87 BMW 635 and he was able to get a list showing all of the chassis numbers in the order they came off the assembly line for a particular year.

I'm not sure where you'd get this or if you can get one for the altezza? Maybe some one has an easier solution.

If you have a look at the little white tag on the end of the seat belt it says the year it was manufactured. Not sure if this is when the seatbelt was made or not but with the few jap cars i had, the year on the seatbelt tag was the same as the car.
