IIRC Resto Rick...CALL for request, don't shop "on-line" as he doesn't always list stuff, plus stuff listed is sometimes disco...

What is a K member coin?

HI Gene, The "coin" is a factory/vendor added{as in welded on} metal tag with the last two digits of the K member part number.. Depending on the year/application the coin could be round or oval..Not all K members got the coin,most would have a modification like an added skid plate or a reapplication from the original intent... Fastmark, yes at one time RestoRick was selling the coins complete with the stamping for the application..I didn't realize he wasn't offering these anymore either..

Thanks for the explanation. Another thing to add to the list of "Mopar stuff I didn't know." The "didn't know list" is longer then the "did know list". Gene

Actually most K-frames did not have a coin. I've probably had up wards of 50-60 K-frames over the years and only a few had a coin.
Did just sell a 1970 B frame with the 90 coin on it.

True. They started in 70. A friend has a Hemi Cuda and the coin was removed.

I was wondering what it was too. That makes cents now laugh

Explains it on the 69 and older but I also have a lot of 70-72B and 70-74E without coins. Have always wondered why some got it but most didn't. I've even had/have ones with the skid plate and no coin. This one is from a 71 GTX and doesn't have a coin.

And that is highly possible too. I’m not sure because I have not looked at all my parts cars but I bet I’ll find the same thing in my stash. I know my two AARs have the coin. My bird does and so does my 70 charger 440. I worked on an original challenger u code that had one but can’t remember what number it was. I’ll look. His has a skid plate. Not sure if it’s even a oem k frame or someone’s repop. I have not seen it.

I checked my known cars and here what I have.
2 70 AAR with a.....52 coin
1 70 340 cuda(late) with.....52
3 70 440 b bodies with skid plate..... 79
1 70 440 cuda with skid plate.......77
1 70 Satellite 318 .....60

No coins on pre 70 cars and none on two 73 e bodies
No coins on my 318 e bodies.

Looks like 1970 was the only year that had confusing k frames.

Interesting they break out 340 and T/A, probably skid plate is only on the Trans Am cars.
Would make sense in my case, guy I got my car from had parted out a T/A and threw many of those parts on this car.
