If you count the KC-10s as DC-10s, the last one was delivered in 1990. Not sure about the last A-310.

The A310 is still in production, although there haven't been any orders for a good 6-7 years or so. Due to the wide-ranging compatibility between the A300 and the A310, both are built on the same production line, so as long as there are orders for either the A300 or the A310, the line for both types stays open.

As it stands, the last A310 that came off the production line was c/n 706, which was delivered to Uzbekistan Airlines as UK-31003 in June 1998.

However, as TriStar 500 ponted out, the production line for the A310 is still (technically) open, so it may not be the last A310 to ever be constructed.

As for the DC 10, the last frame to be delivered was c/n 48318, originally delivered to Nigeria Airways as N3024W back in July 1989. It's now operated by World Airways as N353WL
