  I dont like letting on,but I'm from south jersey also.If I can help you with areas or locations just ask.
 Was looking under those dealer listings yesterday.I got one for south jersey not listed.In 70's it was Eggie Rambler, White Horse Pike,Oaklyn N.J.
   I was at a car show couple weeks ago with my 60 super and parked across from old dealer building with the round walls. An old dude tells me it was an AMC dealer and he was the service manager.I'm now looking for info on it.When I finally get my required posts I'll attempt pics so I can sell the super.I've done so much reading lately,makes me wanna keep it. Mine came from Bowman +Sons,York P.A.

Pop Tro,
Thanks for the offer. I guess I'm wondering what the likelyhood of a car I got in south NJ in 2009, with a tile issued in 2005, was moved great distances during it's life.
Maybe some other forum members have experience with this.

Otherwise, I'd guess it oroginated somewhere in SNJ/Eastern PA area.
Stay tuned, I suppose.

Dave

Dave,
I found eight American Motors dealerships in New Jersey from an old Sunday newspaper (Courier Post) advertisement. This won't tell you which one it was, but it narrows the choices down a little bit!
Regards,
Dave
P.S. You'll need to save this image and enlarge it to see the dealerships named at the bottom.

What about if it's a Canadian dealership?

My build order indicates the dealer was 3762 but because this is Canada the State field is blank so all I can guess is the car was bought and lived its life in British Columbia.

Interesting point. I don't have a build sheet, unfortunately, I didn't strip my car, and got it as a blasted shell, in pieces, with no seats.
