Found Item of the Month — August 2017
Previous Found Items of the Month

Another item was claimed last month! On Friday while at the Carlisle show I was checking out two Panther Pink T/As parked side by side. One of the the owners had been put in touch with the person that found a broadcast sheet for his car back in 2015. As I looked at the fender tag on the other pink T/A, I recognized the VIN & knew that I had some records for it here. So I pulled the file that night & gave what I had to Mike the next day. Mike did not get a broadcast sheet with the car when he bought it, but the prior owner had sent in a copy to the original Challenger T/A Registry that was started by Jeffery Coe.

So Bob now has a photocopy of his original sheet as well as the registration from for the car from when the prior owner had it. Hopefully the original sheet surfaces someday & makes its way back to the car also!

This was the 413th time that car records have been claimed since I started doing this & the very first one ever claimed in person. Hopefully there will be many more!

A big thank you to Jeffery Coe for keeping the Registry alive as long as he could & for turning his records over to me years ago.

Thanks also to Bob Kovaleski for the photo.

T/A Reunion 2017

Three of the 91 currently known (so far) Panther Pink T/As were at the show this year.

Our IOTM for August is a broadcast sheet for a 1970 Charger with a 383 4-speed that was found by Russ & sent to the show for us via his pal Donald, the VIN is XP23N0G166670.

Thanks guys!

As always, proof of legal ownership & proof the car still exists will be required to claim this item.

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

Special thanks to Johan Ronkainen for hosting this site. We could not have done it without him.
