The 1973-74 Plymouth B-Body Registry Thread

Welcome to the Registry Thread. Since Eric has already put together a pretty good 71-72 database of cars, and I am not aware of anyone starting a registry for the 73-74 cars, I have volunteered to do this. If there is enough interest and participation, this thread could evolve into a full blown stand-alone website similar to my Mopar Sunroof Registry site. With so much info that could be included in a registry, it would be impossible to get it all posted at once - so this will be a work in progress for quite a while.

To participate in the Registry:

Here is a list of items that you can include in the registry. Owners can share as much or as little as they want - but item number 1 would be a bare minimum to participate.

1) One picture of your car, and either a picture of the fender tag or a list of the codes. (Some owners are wary about giving out their entire VINs for their cars, and I understand that. So if that is the case, cover or digitally X out the last two digits in the VIN and that would be very sufficient for the registry.)

Optional (but very welcome) items:

2) A few additional photos of your car. Optimal shots include: A front/drivers angle, a rear/passenger angle, interior shot, and engine bay shot.
3) A very brief simple history of your car: Where/when you bought it, was it a project/survivor/restored/etc, and maybe a few things you've done to the car while you have owned it.
4) Additional documentation like pictures of broadcast sheets, window stickers, door stickers, and Galen reports are very welcome items.

You can send your info to: 19731974plybbodyregistry@gmail.com

ALSO, If anyone spots a 1973-74 B-Body on eBay/Craigslist/etc. that has at least some VIN or fender tag data, shoot me a message at the email above. Thanks!

1974 Plymouth B-Body Registry Statistics:

I currently have only 26 cars in the registry so far - going to need some help here! As soon as I get the 1973 cars sorted out, I will start in on the 1974s.

Additional Resources:

Barry Washington's Hamtramck Historical website is chocked full of info for 1973-1974 Plymouth B-Bodies - from Dealer Brochures to original Chrysler Service Bulletins and a lot in between. Just go to the Library section on his awesome site:
