The '66 Valiant has four important sources of information.

  • 3. Broadcast sheet - Under rear seat, front seat, carpet, or glove compartment.  Here is mine.

  • 4. Certicard - Inner Fender.  This contains your cars VIN number, Transmission, axle, and paint codes.    

I have just touched lightly on car documentation.  The subject is wrote extensively by the MoPar guru Galen V. Govier monthly in High Performance Mopar ( formerly in MOPAR MUSCLE ) and in Galen's "White Books".   Galen is always interested in hearing about any Mopar, and would like to receive a pencil rubbing of your VIN, Fender tag and photo copy of your Broadcast sheet.  The White Books contain how to read a VIN number, a Fender Tag, and a Broadcast Sheet.   The books also list production numbers by model and sometimes by engine and/or transmission.
