Hmm I just learned something from this. Never knew the cars were slotted as “Dealer Demos” from the factory line! Always thought they were just plucked off the dealer lot as the BOSS saw fit. I figured they were, for the most part “LOADED” , as to show the public what all the Bells and Whistles looked like in that model yr car.
Now was (Y13) code used throughout all models and year cars? Or when did in start / end?
Dealer demo meant exactly that. This were cars on hand at the dealer for the general public to test drive. They were often used as salesman or employee personal cars too.
As @commando1 said, you could buy them cheaper because of the mileage and often never registered so they are technically new cars when sold.

HA! The Formula S package includes Red Streak tires and they dinged the dealer for another $45.45 for a T73 option. (Red Streak tires)Here's a great example of a well loaded Y13 dealer demo car.
69 Barracuda with:
A53 Formula S package (high performance 340. Sweet on it's own)
A62 upgraded Rallye dash package (Nice)
power brakes, power steering, console, tinted glass, locking gas cap, remote mirrors, undercoating, bumper guards, sill moldings (all nice to have options that jack up the price of an entry level car)
H51 A/C. Not common on A bodies let alone an A53 car $$$
AM/FM radio. In an A body. Not common.
And the kicker...V1P floral top car with matching F6P floral interior (Let's REALLY show off what we have with this car! Performance, comfortable driving experience, and mod styling)
Almost $1,450 in options or over 50% more than the base price in options.
$4,277 for a Barracuda. You could buy a Newport for less.
