    I've been searching this site and google, but can't seem to figure out how to decode the fender tag on my "brand new" 1966 Chrysler New Yorker 4 door hard top. Also tried some decoder web sites, but they seem to be geared toward Plymouth/Dodge muscle cars or other years. I give up: Would anybody be willing to help me decode it?

    I went to the stock mopar site, and apparently they've discontinued that service. They still have a decoder for 1969 through 1974 fender tags, but not for earlier cars.

    Do you have the build sheet for the car? The build sheet has the 3 digit numeric codes for the options.

    You can down load the FSM for the car from www.mymopar.com. The FSM is found in the tool/reference section. The FSM gives some information on how the tag is laid out.

    Thanks for the responses!

    Unfortunately I don't have the build sheet. Maybe I can get a copy from factory?

    The Dodge Charger decoder came up with an answer that looks very close to what's sitting in the driveway. Thanks! (Always wanted a 5.5W Astrophonic De Luxe!)

    My wife just came in and saw the decoded build sheet screen. She suggested I do a full restoration since the car is so complete. I'm a very fortunate man.

    Contact FCA Historical, they can get you a copy of the IBM card they have on file.

    Thanks! Interesting, but please forgive a newbie question: How do I read an IBM card? I'm guessing there's a decoder somewhere?

    Not a decoder so much, but a way to read the card. There's a thread here someplace... found it.

    I don't know if you have done any digging around in interior of your car yet, but I found my build sheet between the springs in the rear seat-back of my car. If it is there, it is likely VERY fragile and should be handled with great care when removing it.

    Thanks! I will go out and take a look... if it ever stops raining. Just bought the car, so the poor thing is still sitting in the driveway.
