Note: Chrysler originally put this chart together in 1971 as part of a service managers technical bulletin. It was not intended for reproduction or publication. It was confidential, for use by service department employees to identify parts in the field by their original color codes. It covers '71-and-older vehicles, but does not list every torsion bar.

Today, it is a valuable restoration tool. Roger Gibson uses it. He says it is accurate for muscle Mopars.
