Sometime around 1965, from what I know of. There are some 1965 strats that still had a nitro finish. The 1965 strats that do have nitro finish vs the poly are the transitional strats after CBS bought out Fender.

Correct me if I'm wrong, anyone. That's what I've always known from the Fender history I checked out.
