The Bad !!!!!
This crappy frame work was all done prior to me purchasing the car back in 1990, remarkably the floor pan and trunk pan look great ...must be due to factory undercoating.

I brought the hood question up to Dave Wise since he recently made the tag according to the broadcast sheet and after searching his records found that he made the tag off the draft not the final layout and is making me a new tag, I will be sending the other one back for him to destroy. He said that he has seen both hood codes on the tag but that was prior to my SPD and ended around April 15th. Sorry to cause all the confusion but I'm glad someone noticed it so I could get it corrected, Dave Wise @ MMC Detroit is great to deal with.

So the tag you showed in the other thread was a reproduction supplied by Dave ? Well that makes sense...I didn't realize that looking at the picture. :smile: sorry.

just checked my database:
NO fender tag examples of 1971 Challengers or 'cudas with both J54 & N96

1970 fender tag examples w/N96 ONLY every month except for September '69 & February '70
1970 fender tag examples w/J54 & N96 every month from December '69 to June '70

The three 1970 Cuda examples I have restored have only N96 and they are 430, A11, B05

The three 71's with N96 only were 909,925,324

Yes, That was brought to my attention by Dave Wise also, he feels through his research that it should have an Export tag because of the I code on the broadcast sheet.

Yes, unfortunately the original was not with the car when I first bought it back in 1990. The guy I bought it from back then said he removed it when he painted it and said he thought he had it in a tool box but couldn't find it... I went back 3 times to see if he found it but he never came up with it. 26 years later this was my only alternative, I went to Dave Wise because he wont just make you a tag without documented proof, I had to send him pics of the Broadcast sheet and the body VIN numbers.
