Seems as the plants didn't follow the same rule book from corporate.

Could be an easy way for a dealership to know which plant the car came from.


When I researched this before I applied my door vin from ECS, I found that it was plant specific as you guys are stating.

LA - Vertical
Hammy - Horizontal


Intentionally done?

Perhaps it was an easy way for dealerships to easily spot it's origin when it came in for repairs or PDI?

Now that's something I hadn't noticed before.

I don't suppose anyone has a picture of how it should be positioned on a 1970 St. Louis B body?

Thanks Dan!
It will be time to put my new decal on soon.   :D

We have several doors laying around, I'll look at a few.

Now that's something I hadn't noticed before.

I went to save this info in my car notes, and when I got to the right spot, it was already there, along with several pics of Hamtramck & LA door stickers.
Apparently I  HAD  noticed it before.   :rofl:

So glad I started writing stuff down!

I don't profess to be an expert.   Just sharing two links for Hamtramck cars at one dealer that I am looking at.   One door sticker is vertical and the other is horizontal.   Am I correct that the horizontal one is a  bit too low compared to come examples you have offered here or is height not that consistent from one car to the other.

Thank you for your thoughts as I am looking at both cars but likely will not consider the blue Cuda since it was born with blue interior (now black) and the exhaust manifolds look like they have surface rust or something

Neither of these cars have mufflers either.   They must be muffler challenged in TN

Both the above cars are restored as well, so who knows if the decal locations are original  :dunno:

The one on my 70 challenger was original and it was horizontal.   :thinking:

I also found that in 71, hard tops had the sticker high on the door while verts got it lower due to an extra bumper in the area for the verts.  :popcorn:

If this will help your search any, my very early LA built SL6 70 Challenger, SPD Aug. 18, '69 Monday, and a possible first day of production build of #113 off the assy. line. It is located in the vertical position on the door.

My car has a weird one my fender tag has spd 815 yet my door sticker says 9/69 both I believe are original Is this a miss print on the fender tag ? Even though the sequence number seems to suit the September door sticker any help would be appreciated.

Common occurrence for a car to actually be built later then the scheduled build date.  :alan2cents:

 :iagree: the "SCHEDULED" production date can be days or weeks earlier or later than the "ACTUAL" production date.
@Harry Pro can you share a pic of your fender tag?

anyone else have a  fender tag with a "SCHEDULED" month that's different than the month typed on the door sticker?
