January 2008

We had two more items claimed in December!

For our January item of the month we have another broadcast sheet for a Plum Crazy 1970 Challenger with a 318 - JH23G0B299155


Note that this sheet has "CORRECTED COPY" in the remarks section at the bottom of it. I would love to know if a copy of the pre-correction broadcast sheet for this car was found in it, I would love to compare them to see what exactly needed correcting.


This particular sheet was found inside a bucket seat back in a Challenger T/A and it was sent in by one of the Registry members in Canada. Thanks Doug!

If you own this car, the broadcast sheet is yours for free with proof of ownership and proof that the car still exists.

February 2008

For our February item of the month we have a broadcast sheet for a Panther Pink 1970 Challenger with a 318 - JH23G0B339227


If you own this car, the broadcast sheet is yours for free with proof of ownership and proof that the car still exists.

Also, if you own any Panther Pink car or Moulin Rouge car, you should know that for the 2008 Carlisle All-Chrysler Nationals there will be a special display of FM3 Panther Pink/Moulin Rouge Mopars. Building Y will be by invitation only and will house 12-14 factory FM3 vehicles and we're hoping to have a nice assortment that covers ALL body styles. There will also be an outdoor area on the Fun Field that will be open to ALL pink Mopars. This area is open to all Mopars that are currently pink - these do not need to be factory FM3 vehicles. Factory FM3 cars that are currently another color are also welcome.

Please go to for more information.

Hello all,

We had two more items claimed in February!

The month of March marks the 4th Anniversary of this website, thanks to everyone for looking and all the support, donations and kind comments along the way.

Note that this sheet is the apparent victim of a printer mis-feed, all the printed text is about one inch too high;

April 2008

Hello all, we had two broadcast sheets claimed during March. Thanks to Larry and Allen, two more Challenger T/A owners now have broadcast sheets for their cars. :-)

For April we actually have two items of the month, including one item that I have never seen before, it is a "Notice of shortage and / or error - new vehicle shipments" form. For this particular 1970 Hemi Challenger R/T, it was delivered to the dealership without the 426 Hemi emblems. The VIN is JS23R0B232237



There is also a cover letter from the dealership to Chrysler concerning the parts shortage. If you own this car, both items are yours for free with proof of ownership and proof that the car still exists.

Well, it took almost two years to the day, but this paperwork was just claimed! The owner did find a broadcast sheet for another Challenger A93 Coupe in her car, I have asked her to send it in. This is the second of our IOTMs to be claimed, hopefully there will be more as time goes on!

-------------------------------------

We had two more items claimed last month. Yahoo!

The Coupe was a mid-year introduction for the Challenger line in 1970, it continued through 1971. The group code for these cars was A93. The A93 package was introduced for the Challenger on February 25th, 1970 with production beginning in early March of 1970. The A93 package was available in the Barracuda line also, the earliest A93 car I have seen ( so far ) is a Challenger, it has a scheduled production date of March 13, 1970.

If you have an A93 car scheduled the same day, or earlier, please let me know?

For our May item of the month we have a broadcast sheet & several other papers for a Plum Crazy 1970 Challenger Coupe, the VIN is JH23B0B440325

If you own this car, all the paperwork I have for it is yours for free with proof of ownership and proof that the car still exists. (it has been on Ebay twice in recent years) ;-)

Updated 8-21-2008

Whooo-hoo! While we have had 65 items claimed from the "found" section since we started this website, none of our "Items of the Month" have been claimed...

Until today.

I am quite happy to report that this item (the 66th one now) has been claimed, and it will be mailed to the owner of the car in the morning.

Thanks again to Tom Race and all the others that have sent items in and helped in other ways along the way.

Thanks! Barry

For our August item of the month we have a factory invoice as well as the actual sales invoice for a 1970 Challenger R/T convertible with the 440- sixpack. This car sold new from the L. L. Richardson Dodge Dealership in Dallas, PA. The VIN is JS27V0B152616 If you own this car, the records are yours for free with proof the car still exists and proof of legal ownership.

These two records and hundreds more from this dealership were donated by Tom Race at R/T Specialties. The cars range from 1932 through 1974 models, and they include Desotos, Plymouths, Chryslers and Dodge trucks.

I will be adding all the VINs to the "found" section just as soon as I can. There are hundreds of pages, some cars have only one page, while some cars that were sold new, traded back in later and then sold again as used cars have up to six pages. The records for all the 1968 - 1974 cars were added to the found section last night, the rest will follow as soon as I can finish sorting them and adding them to the database.

Tom,
For all of us, thank you very much!

Hello all, We had items for two cars claimed last month, including our "Item of the Month" for August!

If you own this car, the window sticker is yours for free with proof the car still exists and proof of legal ownership.


October 2008

Hello all,

Sadly, we did not have any items claimed last month.

All of the VIN numbers on the dealership records for 1930 -1939 vintage Chryslers, Desotos, Plymouths, Dodge cars & Dodge trucks that Tom Race at R/T Specialties donated to the cause have now been loaded up into the found section. So, to highlight a new (old) era for us, our new "Item of The Month" is for the record of the very oldest car we currently have here available to claim.

It is a 1932 Desoto Sedan, the VIN on it is 5050020, this car sold used from the L. L. Richardson dealership in Dallas, PA in 1951.

If you own this car, the dealership invoice is yours for free with proof the car still exists & proof of legal ownership.

If you own a different car from the 1930's - please check the "found" section for your VIN number now by clicking here.


November 2008

Hello all, for our November found item of the month, we have a broadcast sheet for a 1970 Challenger with the 383 four barrel engine. The VIN is JH23N0B171597 . This car was built for Canadian sale, so if you own a dark green Challenger in Canada (or from Canada) you may want to check your VIN.

Best of luck!
Barry


December 2008

Hello all,

Our "found" section now has over 5000 items waiting to be claimed. I have been getting a lot of letters, phone calls & emails asking me specifically if I have something for a certain car. The truth is, if you do not see it listed on the site then I do not have anything for it. Please check the list before contacting me & save both of us some time. I list everything as it comes in & I have the time to do it. All the specific requests for items not listed are slowing the whole process down. ;-)

For our December item of the month we have a broadcast sheet for a 1970 Challenger with a slant six - JH23C0B108330

It is coded for a 3-speed transmission, white paint with red interior. If you own this car the broadcast sheet is yours for free with proof of legal ownership and proof that the car still exists.

Happy Holidays from the entire HH staff!

Barry Washington
