Model '56, but I would list it with 1955 year - seen at the Paris Motor Show in this year.

Yes but all models seen in " Salon de Paris année N" are Models N+1 till the 90's (i don't remember when precisely)

Yes, but you know it is same like for example with Escort Mk.3 - introduced in 1980, m.y. 1981, but actually in English movies we have a lot of them listed with year 1980 (because of plates).
Anyway it could be a good question what is the most important for us - model year, year of manufacture or year of first registration (the last one only in such countries like UK, when plates usually aren't changed)?

Usually we use the "model year" if the documentations uses it. So for US cars it is always model year (as the cars are known with these years and not the first build year), but for other cars it depends on the make.

As I wrote and as you can see this Simca was named by producer 'model '56', but I think I would be nice to list it like now and to know that it is the very early one, maybe even pre-series(?). :D

This is obviously the Regence displayed on the Simca Vedette stand at the Salon de l'auto in september 1955.
The cars presented at the Paris motor show in 1954 as 1955 models did have a visible gas refill instead of hidden behind the rear license plate.
The front bumper of 55 models did not have a place for the license plate like the car on these pictures.
This 56 Régence was painted Jaune paille and Oxford Grey, a very nice color combination.
