    And my car has 38 Special Order on the bottom of the broadcast sheet, and nobody/nowhere has ANY info regarding that code. I personally have never seen it on any other Mopar broadcast sheet, including Birds, A-12s etc. Is it supposed to be Y38?

    I'm going to tag this post over to the Hurst Nerd thread [ 300-H HURST nerd stuff... ] for safekeeping/future reference. :thumbsup:

    Every tag that I have seen (surprisingly or coincidentally, that includes the September 24th "prototype" car that was originally in FT6 green, last picture below) has been V78.

    I can make out the V78 on this car when greatly enlarged:

    Here's the door sticker for the first fender tag (#179) in my post above. Born in May 1970. (Not January 25th! :wideyed:)

    Ummm.

    199986 has it too.

    A two digit code at the bottom of 70 broadcast sheet is not particularly uncommon.

    Some other codes used that year:

    02 = Charger
    03 = Super Bee
    04 = Special Tires
    08 = Canadian Job
    09 = Employee Preview
    13 = Oil Unit
    14 = Export
    15 = California Exhaust i.e. N95
    18 = Trans AM i.e. AARs and T/A Challengers
    20 = Sold Car
    30 = NASCAR 1 (Superbirds)
    38 = Special Order
    90 = Calibrated Speedo

    I agree but are you sure that's a legit tag?

    That's interesting info about "bottom of the broadcast sheet" codes, thanks.

    As for my 38-Special Order, I realized that it somehow means 'special order', but nothing about my car is special....it's just another Hurst with the usual standard features other than the slight upgrade of an AM/FM. Perhaps it was actually ordered by the First Owner (a fellow name of Virgil Harrison of Clovis, NM, delivered July 24, 1970) versus the Hursts that just showed up at a dealership, with the GM and Sales Manager saying "WTF is that thing?!".

    I can't say "for sure", but it has been discussed plenty here So what happened to this one? The 1970 300 Hurst Prototype? and elsewhere on the Web.

    Here's another pic of the car and you can see it's the same fender tag. And the close-up of the tag looks darn original, and it jives with the story of the prototype being a green car.

    It's all part of the endless Hurst legends. :BangHead:

    I'm referring to the tag on the car with the open hood, not the prototype car.

    Jeeeze...I spent an hour verifying the prototype story before I responded, but yeah, good point about the open hood car. Yaknow...I've often seen fender tags that are intentionally left to be different than the current paint, I assume to lend a bit of patina and authenticity to a restoration, but to leave it bare metal...I've seen that too and don't understand it. But if it's a bogus tag, why would someone make it glaringly evident by not painting it.

    Here's a couple:

    Not my photo...some resto tips from Ehrenberg.

    And then there's rivets....what a dumbass. No sheetmetal screws laying around for your beautiful V-code Cuda, huh?
