Found Item of the Month June 2013
Found Items of the Month
Hello again everyone,
No items were claimed last month.
For our June 2013 IOTM, we have a broadcast sheet
from the LA plant for a 1970 Dodge Dart four door,
the VIN on it is LH41G0E151252
It was found under the
front bench seat of another four door dart with
a VIN 266 numbers higher, so the cars must have
been built close to each other on the line. These
two cars are only the 7th & 8th Darts I have heard
of from the LA plant so far. At some point in or
around May of 1970, it appears as if the LA plant
stopped producing E-bodies. This is the reason that
some Western Sport Special Challengers were built
at the Hamtramck Plant in the last few months of
the model year.
All of the 1970 LA built Darts, Dusters & Valiants
I have seen so far were also built in the last few
months of the model year, so for some reason LA
may have switched from the E-body cars to the A-body
cars. If anyone has any late build A, B or E bodies
I would love to hear from you, with your help we
may be able to fill in some gaps in the timeline.
As always, the broadcast sheet is free to the owner
of the matching car with proof of legal ownership.
| 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
