I do, but it's not the most updated one, and I've never seen any info that suggests the most up-to-date 1969-71 book has C-body numbers beyond general production.

I'm sure someone on here can confirm.

We know there was at least one, but it's not in the presented statistics.

I'd just like to thank everybody for posting here.

I am actually very surprised at the amount of interest in these great cars.

Good to see the enthusiasm!!!

I tend to agree with you Dan. That would also be good explanation for why Dan C's two early promo 71s were both T code 71s, rather than U code cars like the rest of the 71s. ..."Well if we are going to cancel the V code 71s (we only sold 61 last year anyway) lets go ahead and upgrade the 4bbl cars from T to U for 71....." imaginary conversation from the top floor guys at Chry/Ply...

The fact that Dan's two "T" code 71 Sport Fury GT's exist, and probably another couple, means that the "V" code 71 was indeed available until the end of August, when it was officially cancelled. The two "T" codes that Dan had were the base model, so to speak of 1971 GT's. The optional one was a "V" code until the end of August, both of Dan's cars are August 1970 builds. Whether any were built, who knows, but the fact is: It was possible to order one in that month time period, if you wanted one. Even the parts book for 1971 shows a complete striping for the hood specifically showing either 440 or 44+6. In my mind, that is more evidence that they were indeed available, if you wanted to order one.

Cool! I sold my 69 Monaco 500 convertible last year, only a 318 auto but all of them are rare. I used to own a 69 Polara 500 convertible L code and wish I still had both of them... frown

Here's an excerpt from the 6/70 1971 Plymouth order sheet. Would this have been the order sheet version in place for August of 1970? Was there a revision after this version? Am I missing something under the engine codes? How could/would one order the E87 version?

We picked up a 70 or 71 (Don't recall) Chrysler in West Tulsa that was red with white vinyl top and had a factory steel sunroof.

A buddy scrapped it nervous

Any ideas as to where the 65 Fury III 426 Hemi Pilot Car actually is, or does it exist?

I heard it still existed without badges. In Michigan I believe. I read that they cast 2 sets of exhaust manifolds. I would like to see them and see what they looked like.
