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

No items were claimed in June, but thanks to one or our Registry members, approximately 600 more items will be added to the FOUND section after I take the time to sort these all out!

Mitch sent in an invoice book from Risko Chrysler Plymouth in Connecticut, this book includes over 800 invoices for new & used cars they sold between October of 1968 & February of 1970.

Al least one car so far has three invoices, it was bought new, traded in later & then sold again!

We are featuring two items of the month this time, Blair traded in his 1967 Hemi GTX on a new 1970 Duster with a 225 & manual three speed, so these cars are linked. The GTX was sold as a used car about 5 months after it was traded in. I love A-body 3-speed stick cars, so this was cool to see! The VINs are RS23J77158577 & VL29C0B130883

As always, proof of legal ownership & proof the car still exists will be required to claim either of these items, thanks for sending them in Mitch!

I'll do my best to get the rest of the VINs from this book listed in the found section as soon as possible.

If anyone coming to the Carlisle show has records that they would like to donate to the cause in person from one to many, please email me so we can meet at the show.

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.
