If you are fortunate enough to have any original factory documents with your car you are in the minority. If a car has even one of these documents it raises the desirability and even the value of the car. Only a very small percentage of — Plymouth and Dodge B-Bodies are lucky enough to have some of these documents and even fewer have all of these important papers.
Their importance cannot be underestimated when establishing the pedigree and history of your car. Always inquire about the original paperwork before purchasing your dream machine. When your car left the dealership the original owner probably had a packet of original paperwork. How many of these documents survived over the years varies.
This chapter helps you understand and decode these documents. The broadcast sheet, or build sheet, can be the most important document for your car.
The data listed on these sheets is very similar. Every part used to manufacture the car is on the broadcast sheet. The fender tag has some of the options listed depending on the plant that built your car, but without the original broadcast sheet many options cannot be proven to be original. Build sheets changed from year to year and have minor and even major differences in appearance. The codes could indicate different parts in different years.
Every option is listed on this sheet. The codes under each option tells everything about the car and needs to be examined. Even the earliest assembly lines used a build sheet to assemble each car. They were not left in the cars until somewhere around the late s or early s.
The line workers placed these sheets in the car in various locations. The first place to look for your broadcast sheet is under the backseat tucked into the springs. In Mopars they can also be found in the springs of any front or rear seat back or seat bottom, under the carpet, in the headliner, taped to the top of the glove box, and sometimes taped to the top of the heater core.
Many cars left the factory without a broadcast sheet and others might have left with a build sheet from another car. Some cars even have more than one broadcast sheet. Someone may have found it and discarded it years ago when no one really cared about these sheets. A previous owner may have removed the sheet for safe keeping and then lost it.
Replacement VIN & HIN Plates, Tags & Stickers
Mice love to eat these sheets and owners have often found a nest made of a pile of little numbers on pieces of paper. All is not lost, however, if you do not have the original broadcast sheet for your car. You may be tempted to have one made from someone who reproduces these sheets. We strongly recommend you do not do this because no matter how good it may look, it is still only a copy.
Fake broadcast sheets, Certicards, and fender tags lead to doubt and suspicion, and devalue your car. These cards were issued on the Plymouth and Dodge B-Bodies only during the years — The dealer used this card to help identify the car when it came in for service.
They were easily lost and very few cars actually have their original card. The Certicard came in different forms over these short four years. You are very fortunate if this card comes with your car. This sticker included information about the dealership and prices of the base model equipment and options.
Even today when a potential customer walks into a new-car showroom, the first thing they look for is the window sticker.Please login or register. New Member Offline Posts: 7.

AbominationDec 10, I have a car that I have a title for, but the VIN tag was lost on. Before I found this, I had thought that my only recourse would be to accept the crappy lookin' Highway Patrol one. Can I actually do this? Not certain that it was the same company, but I had one made cuz my firewall stamping was too weak to get a vin rubbing for the DMV. The tag I got was an official liscensed FORD part, perfectly stamped with the data I gave them and delivered to my door.
It was a ringer for an original they even sold the pop rivetsand it was cheap. Anyway, I got mine in the mail, took a vin tracing of it, and DMV paperwork sailed thru.
