The Official Website of The 1970 Hamtramck Registry

Last Updated: July 7, 2014


Welcome to Hamtramck-Historical.com, the Official Website of the 1970 Hamtramck Registry. This registry is for all "0B" models — from 4-door Valiants to the Duster, Challenger and Barracuda models — all are accepted regardless of condition or engine size. VIN and code information from parts cars and parted cars is appreciated as well! This registry is a division of The Challenger T/A Registry P. O. Box 9632 Ketchikan, AK. 99901 or online at www.challengertaregistry.com and is run by Barry Washington.

Current 1970 Registry counts =>     Hamtramck: 11,400         Los Angeles: 2,526

Great news! A deal has been signed for my home here in Alaska. It will likely take about a month to complete the inspection, appraisal & document preparation. If all goes well I will be moving to Pennsylvania sometime in July.

I will be out of the loop with no internet or mailing address until I find a new location. So, the following things will be affected since I will not be available to correspond with anyone;

1. The 'Found' item section.

2. Registrations.

3. Services will not be available.

4. My contact information will also be gone of course.

5. This announcement will be replacing the space normally used for the Item Of The Month.

Hopefully once I reach Pennsylvania I will be able to find & buy a new place within three months at which time these features will return. All pending registration letters on my desk as of today have been replied to, they will go in the mail tomorrow. (June 2nd) You will all hear from me again once I get set up in a new location. Thanks for all the support over the years!

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.
