that's probably the number of known built cars in someone's registry (GG has 14 "KNOWN" in the 2001 version of his "white book")

 brickwall can't even get people to agree on the number of '69 500s built  Twocents 580

The truth will never be known.......  Not many in terms of regular production, that's for sure though....

Numbers I have seen for 500ís produced have been 392, 548 and 580.
I tend to be in the 548 camp but at this point who knows.

As far as SE 500ís. I can attest to 14 that I have seen in person. Of those 6 of the SE I have seen also have A/C

Does that include Alex Williams' unrestored copper car in Mobile, AL (formerly in Georgia)?

Hard to answer.

Known to me 298. Of those I have personally seen 272. Still a few I have only seen through pictures.

the 580 number for Charger 500s is total, much like the Daytona number there are no specific VONs for US, Canada & Export - just a specific VON sequence (925xxx) for Charger 500 & a pair of VON sequences (926xxx & 927xxx) for Daytona

Danny, there are 308 in the registry. Some cars you know about that due to the owners requests for privacy, are not included or to be added to the registry. If all 500's between your list and those in the registry, how many cars does that total?

A few people have claimed this number or that number, with no positive proof we have seen yet?

Where do the alleged numbers come from?

The only documented numbers are the 392 tally. Unverified is the 580. Survival rates of cars currently in existence points towards the higher total....

The 392 is from a letter on company letterhead that says there were that many. No VINs or other details, so it isn't much in the way of documentation. The 580 list is also not much in the way of documentation because it is not public. From what I recall that list is just VINs, and you would need the fender tag data to verify 500s that are also SEs. So basically, the subject question will probably never be answered.

The best scenario we have is to just keep building the google sheet registry, adding photos and other documents and we'll slowly build the knowledge base up as much as possible over time.

I just spent 3 hours comparing list. I have 18 cars on file not in your list. However there are several errors on the google list as well.

154045 is not a correct number itís 150545.
162286 has fender tag info for 162268, as 162286 isnít a known car but 162268 is car I had.
192663 is incorrect, should be 199663.
Why even show 21710x just remove an incomplete number.
217138 is a typo as well should be 217158.
240584 is another typo should be 240574.

That illustrates what happens when people input their own data, typos are not noticed by most.

We don't have the official company data and some people don't want to share info. In this kind of world, if the registry did not exist most people would not have access to any information whatsoever. The registry will never be complete or perfect, and I don't think anyone has any illusions that it going to become some sort of official document. If users can accept this, its a resource for people who otherwise would have nothing at all. 

Thanks for input and corrections  cheers

Hi AeroFolks,

If we can break the enigma code with with a mechanical 'code-breaker' 70 years ago, then a decent computer could calculate this from Vin's/batch numbers in a millisecond (or quicker)... slap

The answer is, we don't really care how many WERE made, just how many ARE left... scratchchin

They are fossil burning 50 year old 'polluters' that the GREENIES are more than happy to crush and turn into dishwashers/washing machines.
Enjoy them whilst you can my fellow C5oo owners and admirers... 2thumbs

All I know is that the last 440-4speed C5oo is alive and well (for now). coolgleamA
