Found Items of the Month
Four more items were
claimed last month! What a great way to start the
new year. :-)
We also had four items
sent in for a 1970 Challenger, the VIN is JH23C0B359781
- Ray sold the car & forgot that he had these two
broadcast sheets, the Consumer Information sheet
& the original warranty in his safe. He had sold
the car & when he found these, he contacted the
buyer, but that buyer had sold the car in 2014 &
did not keep a record of the new owners name, so
all we know is that it went to Missouri. It was
a 48,000 mile car in excellent condition when Ray
sold it, so chances are quite high that the car
As always, proof of legal
ownership & proof the car still exists will
be required to claim this item.
Thanks for sending these
in Ray. I will let you know when they are claimed!
| 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 as 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, Duster sheets in Challengers & so on.
These locations are all typical for 1970 Hamtramck
built cars. LA built cars are less likely to have broadcast
sheets inside them because the plant had a 'no trash' policy.
They have been found at times though, so you still need
Here are some
places to look: BC
Sheet Location Pics
- Taped to the back side / top of the glove box
- Under the front bucket seats in the springs
- Inside the bucket seat backs

- 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?
You can also check the 'FOUND' section here
to see if anything that matches your car's VIN has been
found & sent in.
Thanks to the people all over the world that
have sent these items in. Over 400 have been claimed so
far & well over 8,000 more are still waiting to be claimed!
Thank you all,
