Hello everyone,

Our first item of the month for 2015 is a broadcast sheet for a 1970 Challenger R/T, the VIN on it is JS23V0B184649 - If you own this car the sheet is available to claim with proof the car still exists & proof of legal ownership.


This sheet was found by Mike from Maryland in his 1970 Challenger. He found three broadcast sheets in his car, two of them were for other cars, this sheet is one of them. I also had some history on his car that I sent to him.

Thanks for sending it in Mike!

March 2015

Hello again everyone,

March 1, 2015 marks our 10th Anniversary here at HH! Thanks to everyone that has helped out along the way, including those that provided items from your collections & to all the volunteer scanners! The HH Library has grown into a wonderful tool for all of us.

I have started a new service as well, I can now install your Legendary seat covers for you. So if you are in Central PA & need a quote please feel free to contact me.

Our March item of the month is a broadcast sheet for a 1970 AAR Cuda, the VIN on it is BS23J0B292469 - This sheet was sent in last year by Russell here in PA, it was found inside the bucket seat of his Cuda 340. If you own this car the sheet is available to claim with proof the car still exists & proof of legal ownership.


Also be aware that the next AAR & T/A Reunion is in July at the Carlisle show, it will be here before you know it, hope to see you there!

April 2015

We had two more items claimed in March!

For April, we have two items of the month. Randall from Alberta, Canada found two broadcast sheets in his 1970 Charger that did not match his car, they are both for XP29N0G203849.


This car is unusual because it is coded for a 3-speed manual transmission, so it is one of approximately 110 cars built with this transmission & the 383 4barrel. If you own this car the sheets are available to claim with proof the car still exists & proof of legal ownership.

Thanks for sending these in Randall!

May 2015

We had two more items claimed in April! The very next item claimed will be the 400th item to be sent to the owner of the car, I have to wonder what & who it will be!

For May, we once again have two items of the month, both for the same car. One of the guys I met at the Spring Carlisle swap meet had these from a car he used to own, he used to drag race it. He sold the car close to 20 years ago & found the tags from it later. I did have to pay for them, so hopefully the car still exists & the owner is willing to reimburse me, but if not it will not be the first time. These fender tags are for a 1970 440-6 Cuda, the VIN is BS23V0B201147 - Proof the car still exists & proof of legal ownership will be required to claim these.


Some dealership maintenance records from a dealership in New Jersey have been donated to the cause as well, I will get them sorted & posted to the found section just as soon as time allows it.

June 2015

No items were claimed in May.

For June, we have a broadcast sheet for a Challenger T/A, the VIN on it is JH23J0B304230. This sheet was found in another T/A several years ago, it does have some moisture & mouse damage but all the codes are legible. As always, proof the car still exists & proof of legal ownership will be required to claim it.


The AAR & T/A reunion is coming up fast! If any of you have 'found' items that you would like to hand over in person, please look for me at the AAR & T/A tent on the show field.

See you soon!

July 2015


Our 400th record was claimed in June!

For July, we have a broadcast sheet for a 1970 Cuda with a 440, the VIN is BS23U0B236546

This sheet was found in a 440-6 Cuda with a slightly higher VIN just last month, note that there was a printer stutter that caused the VIN to be printed a little too far to the right.
Thanks for sending it in Matthew!

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

The AAR & T/A Reunion is just days away now! If any of you have 'found' items that you would like to hand over in person, please look for me at the AAR & T/A tent near the Y Building on the show field.

See you soon!

August 2015


No items were claimed in July, but 14 more broadcast sheets either came in the mail or were handed over in person at the Carlisle show. All 14 items have been added to the 'found' section here. Thanks to everyone that got them to me!

For August, we have a broadcast sheet for a 1970 Barracuda convertible with a 318, the VIN on it is BH27G0B125574. The matching car was for sale on Ebay back in 2003, so the chance that it still exists should be pretty good. It did have a Wisconsin State assigned VIN at the time, so the legal VIN on the car now is 00BH27G0B125574WI .

This sheet is also the first one I have seen with this exact note on the bottom "VOOIID ANDDD DEESTTRROOY WILLL RS" - bad printer stutter for sure! It should have read 'VOID AND DESTROY WILL RS' so I am sure that the RS stands for 'reschedule'.

(Click image above to enlarge)

I have heard in the past that the manual convertible tops were not available on the E-bodies early in the model year & this sheet does not have the P37 code for the power top, so that may be why it was rescheduled? The car had a power top when advertised in 2003, so it will be cool to see if the original order was edited if it was holding the cars build up too long.

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

A broadcast sheet for an AAR Cuda was claimed last month!

For November, we have a broadcast sheet for a 1970 FM3 - Panther Pink Challenger T/A, the VIN on it is JH23J0B282449. This sheet was found in another Panther Pink T/A way back in 1978! It was sent it in after the AAR & T/A Reunion at Carlisle in July, thanks Bob!

As of this writing, 87 Panther Pink T/As are known to have been made so far.

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

December 2015


No items were claimed last month. 58 more items were just loaded up to the Found section for 1970-73 cars though, the majority of them are 1973 A-bodies from the Hamtramck & Windsor plants. So if you have not checked there for your VIN in a while, now would be a good time!

The December IOTM is our DONATE button!

That's right, we need your help! I still have several items to organize & post to the Found section from the stash donated by Al Macdonald, but they need homes. I brought 26 filing cabinets full of records for other people's cars with me from Alaska when I moved to PA & they are all stuffed to capacity. Ideally, I need two more 4 or 5 drawer cabinets to have enough space for the new records as I sort them & relieve some pressure on the drawers already stuffed to capacity. I need money for additional file folders as well, every original record needs its own home so I can find it easily when claimed.

Running a free service actually costs money! We have always relied on donations to help out over the years & I have always covered additional needs that the donations did not cover out of my own pocket, but not once have donations ever broken even or shown a profit.

For 2015 through the end of November, we have averaged 4,459.5 individuals checking this site a month. If everyone donated a dime it would really help us!

Please consider making a donation if you can?

To all who have helped out in the past, your support is greatly appreciated, thank you!
