This note has my head spinning.   It indicates J numbers through J99499, and no "999" paint code option.   However, I have a 999 car and my J number is J99501 - clearly NOT matching the information in the note.   

To me - this clearly suggests something wierd with the 999 cars.   Why the out of sequence J numbers?

My gut feeling tells me that we need to look at J numbers and paint codes (at least on the 999 cars).   Are there any below J99500?



My VIN (from Brennan's site) was a Nov

can someone merge the two Corporation Blue threads together?  The memo in the other thread would have prevented about a dozen of these posts.

I am pretty sure the J VONs on that list are the BEGINNING numbers. If so, the 999 'birds would start at J99499 and work up.

Greetings All,

I have been away from the computer for the past week.  With Wildman's information, we now have 24 cars with various degrees of confirmation.  As soon as I can find a way to load the data in a way that is legible, I will put it up here.

Thanks,

Brennan,

Here is my complete info....

Line 1:   05101 (gate number)     164866 (broadcast sheet print sequence #)
Line 2:   114 (440 4-speed)  083 (Dana)  676 (Hemi-4-speed)
Line 3:   C37D (Corporation Blue)  26 (26" max cool radiator)
Line 4:   V19 (Superbird Exclusive Vinyl Roof)  V99 (Delete Roadrunner Body Stripe)
Line 5:   999 (Special Order Paint)  P6XW (White Buckets)  EW1 (White upper door frame and trim) B30 (Nov 69 production) J99501 (Special Order #)
Line 6:   E86 (440 4 Barrel)  D21 (4 speed) RM23U0A158628


In sum

Powertrain:  440 4V, 3:54 Dana, 4 speed
Exterior: 999 Corporation Blue
Interior:  White buckets with white door frames
Console:  NO

PS Start tracking the J Numbers - perhaps I am wrong but I have this feeling there may be some sequence clues if you start sorting by the J number.

Brennan - can you simply use the fender tag headers (see my bird notes above).   i.e. Gate Number (1), BS Print Seq(1), Engine/Tranny(2),

The numbers in paranthesis indicates which line of the fender tag.

Just a thought

Greetings,

I don't have comprehensive fender tag info for more than a couple cars.  Most of the information is from old member lists, photos and what I have found on the net.

This site apparently uses a language slightly different from HTML.  (correct me if I am wrong)
When I cut and paste the data it gets all scrambled.  If I can find a format that is at least readable, I will post what I have.  It just may take a few tries using different applications and browsers.

Thanks,
Brennan

Also, since the document indicates that the 999 cars would start at J99499 & it looks like the highest one we have so far is J99538 - we (I?) can assume that at least 40 were made.

I know what assumptions do, but sometimes the only way to learn is to be proved wrong.   scratchchin

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

We sold the Cuda a couple of year ago.  We had had it since the early 80's and have been all over with it doing Vintage races and some exibitions.  We took it to Goodwood in england twice and have been from Laguna Seca to Daytona to Mosport in Canada with it .
Right now we are restoring the #76 Challenger Trans am racer and it will be done later this year.  We restored the #77 Challenger back about 10 years ago.  It races in vintage races now and belongs to Ken Epsman in Calif.
Our other Mopar Racer is the #74 Challenger petty kit car.  It has been on a couple of Mopar magazine covers.  This is the Prototype Challenger that Petty built for the Chrysler kit car program and the one that Earnhardt tested for Petty.  I tried to  post a pic of it earlier but it was too big and I lost everything I had typed.  I need to learn how to downsize my pics so I can post them
The Superbird is 1 of the 50 made in Petty Blue (999).  28 are on the superbird registry but I don't know how many of those are restored.   Seems like about 1/2 of them are still unrestored or parts cars.  If there is such a thing now days.   I don't know if there is another on like it.  I have seen one pic of a Petty blue one that is close and has Pettys number and decals on it.   It was done a long time ago and I don't know where it is now.   The Bird is a 440-4v, 4 speed, white buckets,  with Dana track pack.  The other one has an 8 3/4 rear end.
My Charger was ordered while I was in Vietnam and I planned on keeping it forever when I bought it so I still have it now after 36 years.  It is a 71 SE with 383mag 727.   It has all power, leather, Tuff, Rear defroster, AM-FM-Cassette-w/mic,  Suregrip 3.23,  Road wheels, Disc, Headlight washers, and a few other options.
We have two other mopar race cars.  One is a Cuda that is in parts and the other is the Jim Cushman Aspen petty kit car.  It looked like the one that AMT made a model of back years ago.  It will be restored back to the Red, White, & Blue paing job like it ran back then and the #8 on it.
I will be checking on this board frequently and seeing what I can add.

Thanks  Dave  (ViperDave)    Chrysler Vintage Racing.

Taking my VON logic one step further........

It is generally accepted that 1935 Superbirds were produced, right?

The highest VON I have for the normal paint code 'Birds so far is J98890. If the first one was J97000 as the document suggests that would be 1891 'Birds with normal paint codes.

If we assume what I mentioned earlier with at least 40 in 999 paint, that would put us up to 1931 'Birds based on known VONs.

Pretty dang close.........  Wink

Where did the number come from though?

If one was reported as Petty Blue & it does not have a J99 VON then it is safe to assume it was not Petty Blue originally. This is one of the reasons I would LOVE to see a compete list of VONs to complement the VIN list.

Anybody?  shruggy

Greetings All,

This is exactly what I had hoped for.  New information coming forward.  I hesitated to to put the VINs on (especially the Hemi cars) but I am glad I did.  If someone knows that a car has been repainted to Corporate/Petty Blue this would be the time to find out and the VIN is the most potentially known bit of information.

There is some statistical evidence for the 50 car number.  Before asking these 999 questions I had about 800 of the Superbird paint colors reported.  If we guess that about 1950 cars were built, 800 comes out to about 40%.  Coincidentally (or not) I had about 20 999 cars reported........... or about 40% of the "50" number.  Granted, these statistics don't "prove" anything.  They are just speculation.  But they do point in the direction of about 50 cars being painted 999/Corporate/Petty Blue.

I will post an updated version of the sheet later.  I also will upload the data to my website eventually.  The format there is more flexible and I can add more detail such as location of the cars in the VIN runs/spans.

Thanks,
Brennan
