John,my jack is original to the car,T style,mast is exactly 33 1/2" with small hole on the end,no date code,just A stamped below handle insert. Hook is  2931 103,vendor 10961,base stamped A-B.
I am beginning to wonder if they cut the masts at random lengths of a longer piece?
Thanks for your measurements and details!

Doing research prior to making my repro jacks i gathered the following info on T-type jack lengths:

67-9 Cuda Jack Mast Length 33-1/2

68-70 Charger Jack Mast Length 36 (2 Checked out at 36)

My unrestored Superbird  34-3/4

an original 70 Challenger 34-5/8

so from what ive found, the length wasn't a consistent

Tony,
 Thanks for taking the time to post your information on bumper jacks!
With your unrestored Superbird we have 33 1/2", 34 1/4", 34 3/4" and 34 3/4" on mast length so far.

                                                                Superbird Bumper Jack Conclusions!
Over the past couple of weeks I have reached out to friends who own original Superbirds to find out information on the bumper jacks.
I also made a trip to Troy Angelly's shop who has 2 Superbirds there and contacted another shop that has 2 more Superbirds there.
Here are my conclusions based on what I think are original Superbird bumper jacks:
1) All of the original jacks are of the "T" or "Y" mast type and none have been the tubular type!
    So far we have one reported at 33 1/2" long but the majority are 34 1/2" +or- 1/4" and one at 36 5/8" that I suspect may be a C body mast?
2) All of the original jacks have gray painted A-B bases with the extra hole drilled at the 4:30 position for other applications.
3) All of the original jacks have gray painted hooks with part number 2931 103 stamped into them and the vendor code 10961 stamped into them using the "small" font.
4) all of the original jacks have gray painted mechanism's with the oval strengthing depression running along the hook angle.
    So far we have found one mechanism as early as 9 E or May 1969 along with a couple of 9 J September, several 9 K October and a couple of 9 L November with none 9 M December.

For those of you now looking for a correct jack for your Superbird as of 11/6/18 there is one listed on the Detroit Craigslist site under Mopar for $500.00!
Thanks for all the help on this!
