Found Item of the Month January 2018
Found Items of the Month
No items were claimed
last month, but...
Paul mailed in a request
for a fender tag decode for his 1970 Duster 340.
In his letter, he mentioned getting a TA 340 block
with it so I checked my registry files for the VIN
& the car had been reported before!
had seen the car at the Spring Fling show in Van
Nuys in 2012 & sent a photo of it to me, so
I was sure the car was still out there.
I asked about it on a
few different forums, but within 4 minutes of posting
about the car on Moparts.com
, the owner's pal Chris replied! From there it was
just a matter of putting the car owner in touch
Earl & Paul were
able to come to an agreement rather quickly, so
courtesy of Sourosh, here is a photo of Earl &
Paul with the engine all loaded up for the drive
home to be reunited with the AAR Cuda it came from.

While talking with Earl,
he had mentioned having owned a few different cars
over the years like most of us, so I asked what
I always ask - "Did you ever find any broadcast
sheets in any of them that did not match the car
they were found in?" His reply was "Yes,
one, it is for a 1970 440-6 Cuda."
Earl was kind enough
to send it in, so here it is, our first 'IOTM' for
2018! The VIN is BS23V0B192282.
As always, proof of legal
ownership & proof the car still exists will
be required to claim this item.
Special thanks to Nick,
Paul, Chris, Earl for the help & to Sourosh
for the use of his photo!
It always feels good
when a 'match' is made & others are always on
Over 90 more VINs for
items ready to claim have been loaded up to start
out the new year. Hammy New Year & may 2018
treat us all well!
