Fender Tag

Chrysler "Fender Tags", located on  the driver's side inner fender in the engine bay, can be a valuable source of  information. The information below is a decode of the fender tags for my AAR `Cuda, pictured to the  right (or above).  As a general rule, fender tags are read  from bottom-to-top and left-to-right. The following are the codes from the fender tags as well as the decoded information for each:
