Where to look for your Buildsheet!

Build sheets are difficult to find but you can look under the seats , carpeting  , behind the plastic panels of the front seats, inside doors and behind the dash to see if you can find yours.

71 429 CJ Cougar

This build sheet is from a 1971 429 CJ Cougar. As you can see it, is in rough shape. Since many build sheets were left under the carpet on the floor, they often got wet and severely deteriorated. You can use some of the other buildsheets on this page to identify the categories not clearly visible on this sheet.
