    Nice, yet unusual find. About the D34 code, I think that means “light duty automatic”, right? Does that car not have a 727? Is there such a thing as a light duty 727? I know they made motor home 727’s that had beefier internals and some for Hemi cars.
    What’s the code for a 904? I would think that a 904 would be light duty, a 727 standard duty, or heavy duty.
    Just some pondering.

    The washer bottle looks a bit better in the picture than in person. It's intact, but quite fragile.

    I think we discussed this a little while back. I can't remember the final conclusion, but "light duty" doesn't mean much. Maybe just not police spec.

    My friend was running wanted adds in papers and classic car magazines for '70-'71 Furys, and this guy called him last year. I was supposed to pick it up in 2018, but it was always raining out and we just kept pushing it back. The barn that it was in has been sold and it's scheduled to be demolished in the next week or so, and I got the news last week that the car had to get picked up real soon. The only day I had time was Sunday. I can't believe that I didn't get stuck back behind that barn, as it's all grass and uphill from where the car was. The car was in Slatington, PA, just north of Allentown. All I know about the car itself is that the guy's father ordered it new, and it got parked in the barn in '89.

    I'll pull off anything worth saving and send the rest to the scrapper. I haven't checked to see if the motor is free. I never asked if it was "running when parked".

    You're right about the door alignment. When I had the back of the car jacked up, the door and fender were overlapping. The sub frame is actually intact from what I could see, but it's no longer attached to the floor at the rear mounts.

    I brought tools to unbolt stuck brake calipers, and was shocked to see a drum when I removed the front wheel. The lack of a brake booster was quite surprising too. I was also pleasantly surprised to find that the drums were only lightly stuck, and just needed a few love taps with a big hammer to free them up.

    What was coded, when it was coded and where it was coded changes year to year and plant to plant.

    Starting in 1972 ALL automatic transmissions were coded D34 on the tag. /6, 318, 400, 440 = doesn't matter. So starting in 72, the tag only tells you the WHAT (Automatic transmission), not the WHICH (light or heavy duty).

    That makes sense. I was just wondering if a 727 was considered “light duty” what was a 904?
    I had took a pic of my tag and decoded it at work. When I saw that it was light duty trans coded, I thought, does my car have a 904? I hadn’t had it for long and assumed it being a c body with a 360 that it had a 727.
    I found out when I got home it was indeed a 727.

    If you're not keeping the heat stove, I'd be interested in it.

    I honestly don't know how you remember this stuff at our age.
    So much information has passed through my head over the last 35 years i don't know how I can still spell my name.

    Great barn find. That's a Premium model (PP). Whole car is untouched. Love it. However needs a couple quarter panels. Interesting, no Torqueflite. Is it the 62nd car made that year? (according to the sequence number):thumbsup:

    The VIN is 160062.

    The VIN number doesn’t have anything to do with production or “order made”.

    69CoronetRT. Yeah I forgot that my stepdad said that the sequence number means nothing. Just got excited and "jumped the gun" I guess. How can you know what number a car was in the production line?

    Due to the way cars were built, you can’t know. They were built when they were built in whatever order they were built.

    Up to the end of C-body production the transmission codes being used are:

    D34: Belvidere 1972-1975, East Jefferson 1972-1975 and 1977-1978, Newark 1972-1974
    D36: Belvidere 1976-1977, East Jefferson 1976

    So in 1977 Chrysler tags can have two codes: Belvidere-built Town & Country has D36, whereas East Jefferson-built Newport and New Yorker have D34.

    Just like D34, D36 means only "Automatic Transmission".

    (I know, I should have more than just a handful of fender tags, but this is the picture that emerges.)

    Update:

    In 1977 Newport production was shared between East Jefferson and Belvidere. So theoretically Newport tags can have both D34 and D36, depending on the plant.

    Only I haven't seen any 1977 Newport fender tags.
