    Why do you need a part book? Well you don't unless you are trying to find parts for your car.

    How is that going to help you? I'm glad you didn't ask but I will tell you anyway.

    IF you have a part # you can google it this way: 3796057 Mopar

    You will see that a bunch of stuff comes up for sale on Ebay plus vendors that stock it or posts online about the part.

    You can also plug a part # into these 2 parts locators:

    www.partsvoice.com
    www.rearcounter.com

    Also you can figure out what years it fits and sometimes what other numbers are equivalent
    (superseded) and then look for the other numbers too.

    Personally I have every Mopar part book (truck or car) from 1929-1999 in paper form in binders. I also have a CD from Chrysler that covers 1982-2012 (car & trucks). After 2012 you have to go to a dealership to see them on their computers. I also have accessory books from the 1950s to the present. To say the least it occupies an enormous space and it weighs about a billion pounds. (pics of some of the books I have)

    I also have 2 pics from the 1975 part book so you can see the detail in it.

    I have lots more for other years /models for sale but this is what I have for the C bodies:

    ALL are NOS
    1955-58 car paperback 45.00

    all below are looseleaf and not in binders

    1960 all passenger cars 45.00
    1961 (Dodge only) 20.00
    1963 all passenger cars 45.00
    1974 all passenger cars 45.00
    1975 all passenger cars 45.00

    shipping is extra

    Get them while you can and before I burn them for heat or for the worst BBQ ever.

    PM me for more info

    Marty-
    Can you explain to neophytes like me (and probably many others) why Chrysler would stamp a part with a number that LOOKS like a legitimate part number but really isn't the part number as per the parts book?

    Also, why so many part number changes? It seems that a part in the '69 book for example might have a certain number, but within a few years that same part might have had several different numbers. Is there a way to track all those number changes?

    I think I speak for most of us when I thank you for saving all those parts!

    I can't help with the casting number vs. actual part number issue, but I have a theory on the superceded numbers. I think they change part numbers any time they change manufacturers for the part. I suspect they use a high volume manufacturer while a particular car is in production, then switch to a low volume manufacturer to supply replacement parts for the dealers. I think that's why almost all trim part numbers eventually supercede, where mechanical parts that are used year after year unchanged, usually don't.

    superseded: change vendor, change design, change material or sometimes somebody farts and they change the #....I have seen #s superseded 20-30 times... it can be insane.....just in case you think I'm a liar or on drugs (it has happened before) an example is shown from a 1949 Supersedence list...I've got lots more all the way into the 1990s............

    casting #s: if the part is color coded and plastic there is a casting # but it is not the number in the part book

    BB28HW7 is RF WHITE FASCIA MOLDING 4388176 cast on part
    BB28HX8 is RF BLACK FASCIA MOLDING 4388176 cast on part
    so the part is the same except for the color

    above:
    HW7 W=white 7 is how dark it is typically white is 1
    HX8 X= black 8 is how dark it is typically black is 9

    above are from the early 90s so it is not following typical usage

    diecast parts are often close but not the # in the part book
    manifolds can be a digit off or not even close
    Assemblies such as a lens pkg have a number but that # is for the lens/gasket, the lens will have a part # on it but it is a casting #
    Same goes for a Taillight assy that has a bezel, lens, gasket and a housing

    2809161 L T/L LENS/GASKET 1968 NY 2853449 cast on the lens
    2809174 R T/L LENS/BEZEL,GASKET 2853314 cast on the part 1968 Fury


    Any part in my database that has a casting # on it that is not the serviced part # I keep as a reference so I can ID parts that have come out of the package or
    I found somewhere with no ID

    Stainless and aluminum trim almost never have a # on them... one out of 1000 might.....I have seen it with my own beady little eyes....
