Thank you. Do they show up on the build sheet?
Revisiting this thread amid the start of a separate thread on the A74 code, I will update the info on N-code 1970 Polara convertibles to note that a sixth car has been found (I bought Snow White two years ago). The build date is Feb. 28, 1970.Thanks to Dave, I am aware of 5 surviving N-code Polara ragtops. I have production dates for 3 of them: to your point, the earliest is Dec. 15, 1969 (Dave has the date for his own and probably also Don's old car, but I don't).
PS: There is a sixth car with a 4-barrel 383 (violet metallic, now in Sweden; originally EB3 then darker blue), but it is not an N-code car.
My DH43N0D came with a 383 4bbl option. It was produced in March, 1970 (appropriate for my high school graduation, to receive it in May). The ONE sales brochure I've found specifically for 1970 Dodge Monacos lists the 383 2bbl and 440 as options, as does the Owner's Manual. Possibly an "added option" for the Spring selling season? Whether this Code N engine is the same as in a B-body, not sure, but they sound the same when standing at the rear of the car, between the exh pipes. Sounds the same as the TX DPS cars (with 383 4bbls) and a '76 Cordoba 400HO. Regardless of which Code N it might be, at part throttle, the speedometer heads for the triple digits without hesitation. When we first changed the trans fluid, we discovered it had the "small" torque converter for a higher stall speed.
