No reverse dash light. Didn't catch that one before.
Now I’m racking my brain, thought the rev.light was on bottom edge of dash by ur knee?
This is the air cleaner on the green 440 a/c equipped car which looks like a 1967 440 air cleaner minus the snorkels. I believe that this air cleaner was also used on 383 equipped Darts....

The more familiar smaller air cleaner on the bronze 440....

Anyone have any idea as to how to make a build sheet readable? The typewriter ribbon must have just about wore put when they did mine. 5 or 6 years ago it was just vairly readable and now a case of disappearing ink.
Ok. Mine has the same medallion as both you have now.
My 68 Coronet RT (4-10 build) has the fratzog. I thought they were the only one that got those. Still learning...
Wow you guys make me jealous!!! My car having been saved from a junk yard had so much missing, I'm in the dark on all of these subtle differences. It was built on Dec 20 1968 making one of the last. Im kinda stuck doing a generic restoration since I don't have a clue how it started. Mine did have the squard vent pull handles though. This past week I chased down the part that had the 2 round knobs. I had never seen that before so I figured it was lost in the junkyard. Now I'm thinking I never saw it because mine didn't even have it. So I just bought a part I might not even need! Argh. Guys I'm gonna need lots of help!!!
The sheets themselves were printed, but the black text was typed. You can often see the cloth pattern in the text from the ink ribbon....but I just remembered they are printed and not typed.
I'd still try it though a lot of times a filter will bring out a color separation the naked eye can't see.
No, these don't look like dot matrix. I'm sure Chrysler would have used something like an IBM 1403 in that era which was a chain printer using actual type fonts. Chain printers, drum printers and the like were in common use back then (that IBM was from the late 50's). They were fast because they printed a whole line at a time instead of just one character at a time.In 1968 anything going threw a track printer would have been dot metrics, correct? I have not seen dot metrics on a build sheet.
I agree about the type fonts and typed...definitely not Dot Matrix.No, these don't look like dot matrix.
