Thaks everyone....
Here are 2 pics of a dirty but nice 97 SLE.
By the way, are 40th common or are they a few made?
4,935 SE'* were made. About 10%. I just like the badge. Unique, and really sets them apart.

What would really make your car rare would be for it to be a 40th SLE SC (Supercharged) seeing as the SLE could have the L67 engine 1995-1997.

BTW, my dad is an old Mopar freak too -but at the moment he only has one original Hemi car -a 1953 Chrysler New Yorker Deluxe Newport 2 dr hdtp .....yeah, that'* a line.

There'* a couple pics of the 1953 here:

http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...+1953+chrysler
First off let me say that your dads car is a very nice car, sorry to hear about the hit and run....

I did check out the tech area and I have noticed either something is wrong or I am not reading it correctly (which is usually the case), it says that all 40th should have a Y40 in the Vin. Well I bought mine new from the dealer and I think I still have the window sticker somewhere in this house, and my vin does not have a Y40 in it.
Did I read it wrong?
What is a L67 engine, I thought the 3800 is all the same?

Have a look at the spare tire cover, you'll find the RPO listing... In that listing you see a few codes like,AU0, FW2, FE1, M13, and most importantly Y40 , if this car has leather and a few other options look for the possibility of H4U as well...

Also you vin should start out like ... 1G2HX The X is the SE Bonneville, with the possibility of adding the SLE package... Hope this helps

The L67 is the Supercharged 3800. The series I Supercharged was from 92-95. Series II is from 96-04. All of those years it was still called the L67.

The L27 is NA (regular 3800) and was from 92-94. 95 - current NA (regular 3800) is the L36.

My thoughts were dead on the money....

You have a 1997, 40th SE bonneville with the SLE(H4U) package... So you have a " Sport Luxury Edition " 40th anniversary bonneville... Verry nice...
