Welcome to Hamtramck-Historical.com, the Official Website
of the Registries for all the 1970 models built at the Hamtramck
& LA assembly plants. All are accepted regardless of
condition or engine size. VIN and code information from
parts cars & parted cars is appreciated as well! To
register, please click on the 'REGISTER' button at left
to print out the form. We are also home to the largest FOUND
section of its kind, so be sure to check for your VIN in
that section, it is updated as new items are found &
sent in. The registries & found section are maintained
by Barry Washington at:

Found Item of the Month May 2015
Found Items of the Month
We had two more items
claimed in April! The very next item claimed will
be the 400th item to be sent to the owner of the
car, I have to wonder what & who it will be!
For May, we once again have two items of the month,
both for the same car. One of the guys I met at
the Spring Carlisle swap meet had these from a car
he used to own, he used to drag race it. He sold
the car close to 20 years ago & found the tags from
it later. I did have to pay for them, so hopefully
the car still exists & the owner is willing to reimburse
me, but if not it will not be the first time. These
fender tags are for a 1970 440-6 Cuda, the VIN is
BS23V0B201147 - Proof the car still exists & proof
of legal ownership will be required to claim these.
Some dealership maintenance records from a dealership
in New Jersey have been donated to the cause as
well, I will get them sorted & posted to the found
section just as soon as time allows it.
| The goal of the 1970 Hamtramck
Registry is to provide an organization for the owners
and admirers of these cars. Through the registry we
will collect information to try and build an accurate
historical record of these cars and use it to help the
members when possible. This includes matching up found
broadcast sheets, other paperwork or serial numbered
components such as fender tags, engine blocks and transmissions.
Since Chrysler Corporation chose not to keep records
on these cars, creating a database to try and accurately
record the information on these cars for historical
purposes is one of the major functions of the Registry.
Please click the "REGISTER" link on the left,
download the Registration Form in either PDF, HTML or MS
Word format, fill out the form as completely as possible
and mail it to me at the address above.
If you have not done so already, I urge you
to search your car for broadcast sheets.
Sometimes there can be as many as 5 in one car,
so if you do find one, please keep looking, there could
be more. They do not always match the car they are found
in due to how the assembly lines at the plant were run.
If you find any sheets, please let me know if they match
or not. It is very common to find a sheet for a different
model of the same car. I have also heard of Challenger sheets
in Cuda's and vice versa.
Here are some places to look:
- Taped to the back side / top of the glove box insert.
- Under the front bucket seats in the springs
- Inside the bucket seat backs
- Under the rear seat bottom
- In the rear seat back.
- Under the package tray (speaker shelf)
- Under the carpet
Please check all these locations and let me
know what you find.
Thank you all,
Barry Washington at The 1970 Hamtramck Registry and The
Challenger T/A Registry
