Said itís car # 47 built if that helps. His show is great. This one was more of an extra after hours episode. Sound was pretty bad on this one.

If one is luckily enough to have their fender tag or BCsheet, then there's a somewhat barometer of telling where you stand in terms of the C500 production run.. All Charger 500's have 925 starting their VON, the last three digits usually corresponds to the placement of the vehicle related to others... Not bullet proof for I'm sure there were orders that were cancelled.....

Guys, this is XX29L9B144173, I had a long chat with the owner, Gene, and he told me he had contacted Daniel in the past. He says he is pretty sure the fender tag is somewhere in his files, and that he never looked for a broadcast sheet... so one might turn up as it is disassembled I looked quickly, none on the glovebox or under front seats...
I am good friends with Nick, and asked if I could assist in making sure that all the special 500 stuff would be redone right, even if the car will not be concours restored!
I'll keep this forum informed of the progress of the resto as much as I can,

Don't loose those rubber strips for the fender filler !!!!!  Hope that front end picture is recent and/or he still has them for both sides.

Yeah I spent about 1-2 hours on the phone with Gene the owner over the past day. Very nice guy. I am helping him get a few missing pieces for the car, and he is still looking for the broadcast sheet he pulled out of the car early on in its life.

Danny.. Is it a very early C500... Like Richard's 610 car, I notice the body plug in the firewall by the windshield wiper motor..............

Haha, yes, I've asked Nick to tag everything to i.d. location, etc... noticed they seem to be all different!
Right now, Nick and owner are still debating what kind of work he wants done, and after discussing with Dan, he might want to go more ''correct'', but I am sure none of the deviations from stock would be irreversible. I've noticed that often, long-time owners who want to get their old car restored are not as much into 100% correctness, and would rather have the car as they actually drove it, with period mods...

Interior teardown starting, and one nice surprise in a plastic bag under the passenger seat!
Original windshield was carefully taken out, should be re-used, to get access to the dash bolts.
The wiring did not suffer too much, with no aftermarket gauges or radio added early in life, like many of those cars... Again, original will be cleaned, repaired as needed and re-used.
Lots of the original Y2 Yellow peeking out (It will go back to Y2)
More here as it progresses, and on Nick's Garage on YouTube!

Where do those 2 little clips go - shown in first pic, between emblems and tag?
