Well Bob , from what I have learned about CC vehicles over the years ,
Chrysler never has really kept very detailed records on specific info .

For instance , alot of people wonder how many '78 Aspens were built with
this option or that , but Chrysler didn't keep exact numbers to my
recollection , they only kept percentages . Like the records would say
something like "10% of all Darts in 1979 were Blue" , NOT "2500 Darts in
1979 were Blue" . They also did some off the wall things . I remember more
than one case where the customer wanted a color that wasn't available on
ANY car from Chrysler for a given year , but they went out and painted it
the color he wanted anyway .

Now , of course this was many years ago , but some of the same may apply
today .
