Dodge production codes. pre-84 they were letters/numbers. 84 and up they were all letters. A38 was police package, 84 and up AHB was police package. every code means something different. Mostly engine, trans, rear, interior, paint colors ETC

I only have 2 more codes from Heavy's tag in my file, might be more car oriented and a lot of them are 84 and up all letter codes.

Doing a little researh(while lookin 4 production codes) and found this on Street Vans from Dodge


The Street Van (model year 1978)Robert H. Kline, Chrysler Corporation's manager of truck sales, said, "This model, the first of its type offered by a major manufacturer, has a special appeal to the motorist who wants to convert a unit to his individual tastes, needs, and life style. Our special Street Van provides a custom interior and exterior while leaving a great deal of latitude for plain or fancy conversion of the area between the seats and the rear door."
The Street Van came from the dealership with a custom interior in the driver-passenger area. Standard equipment included high-back bucket seats, carpeting in the forward compartment, woodgrain insert on the instrument panel, and bright trim around the instrument cluster, door trim panels and horn bar. The exterior was unique with H70-1S-B raised white letter tires, a choice of five slot chrome or painted spoke road wheels, and a Street Van nameplate. In addition, the special model boasted bright front and rear bumpers, bright moldings around the grille, windshield and tail lamps, and bright 5x7 side view mirrors.
A detailed set of customizing instructions, plans and templates were provided each purchaser. The Street Van, available on 109 and 127-inch wheelbases in either B100 or B200 models, was designed by Dodge to be the base for individual creative expression, Kline pointed out. "Dodge has been the leader in the compact van and wagon market since 1973, outselling both Ford and Chevrolet as well as the Volkswagen mini-bus. The van which took over the top sales position and the one most often used for conversion was the Dodge Tradesman, a model we originally considered a work vehicle," he said.
The customizing kit furnished with each Street Van included step­by-step photographs and instructions detailing installation of customized features such as port holes, sun roof, and roof vents. A list of manufacturers of these items was also furnished.
"Everything in the kit will make it easier for the do-it-yourselfer to finish the van in an expert, professional manner," Kline said. There were full-size templates for cutting side panels, headliner, and floor covering for the interior. There were also instructions describing the best methods for attaching the material to the inside of the van and illustrations with dimensions showing six alternate graphic schemes; and a membership in the Van Clan and an associate membership in the National Street Van Association (NSVA) along with a subscription to NSVA's publications on van activities.
“valiant67” wrote: “The Street Vans appears to have been made from 1976 to 1980. 1976 models should have had a Street Machine decal on the doors, later years used an emblem that supposedly is quite valuable.”
( and in 79 it was a Emblem!)

I don't know but I would love to see all the stuff in the package included with the van. Wow I wish I had the money back then to get one, instead of spinning my wheels partying and going to van-ins....well... I did have a great time...lol I just loved the look of the '70s Dodges and don't think any others stacked up to them.


Cheers!

What ever the owner could dream up. I don't think the factory painted the Street Vans those crazy schemes you see in the magazines. It was up to the owner. Dodge provided the blank canvas.

At the Mopar show in Carlisle a few years ago, a vendor had a NOS 1980 Street Van kit for sale. He wanted $75 for it...I should have bought it.
