    Yet, also in Colorado they knew how to do it. Recently a 1977 T&C was offered on Ebay "from Colorado mountains". Here are the tags:

    Is there a signature of anyone named Ron Slack on that car? He is the dad of a good friend of mine.

    Mine was built on the evening shift of February 28. It would have been cooler if it had been built on my birthday, but one can't have everything.

    It says something about the mass of these cars that they have GVWRs exceeding 3 tons - more than my Dakota!

    I agree with others, what an awesome bit of history for that fine wagon... I have a '75 that is almost identical. di-noc only slightly better, lol.

    DC118us your car looks great!

    As for the di-noc... it's one thing I don't have to worry about. Dad had a lot of friends at Chrysler back in the late 70's. One of them was a designer and had a friend of his at 3M send my dad enough rolls of the di-noc to redo the wood. I'm slowly collecting parts and should have our T&C back on the road by next summer.

    I've been working on the T&C... slowly. The cooling system is done. I'm moving on to the fuel system next. I found more paperwork on the car. I have the window sticker and some of the original paperwork. There is supposed to be correspondence between my father and Chrysler. I have a folder with handwritten notes about it being the last Town & Country built, but I'm looking for the letters on Chrysler stationary. When I find those, I'll post them. In the meantime... here's the window sticker. Dad ordered everything... including the engine block heater. We live in southern California, so that option was added so he could say he ordered it "fully loaded" rather than getting it because we needed it. It's just the way he was.

    I'd love to find the option prices for '74.

    First and foremost Aaron, My condolences on loosing your Dad. I lost my Dad way back in '54 and I still miss him. But we'll hug and talk again someday. Being the new guy to the FCBO neighborhood I'm confused ah bit that your T&C even had a 440 in it. I thought the cross over to the 400 block took place in '73-'74, and I quickly add here that I'm not questioning the authenticity of your '77 T&C. Guess I learn something new every day. I'll be watching this thread with much interest. Go get 'um Guy, Love those Long Roofz. Jer

    The paperwork is trickling in as we go through all of dad's stuff... and he had a LOT of stuff! This is the Chrysler Inner Company Correspondence discussing the production scheduling of the last Town & Country. This was the last step in the process before it was built. There should be more documentation showing how it all happened.

    No less than 440 cubic inches in T&Cs as standard during the model years 1973-77. 400 was a no-cost option in 75-77.
