I have owned my 1970 automatic for a little over a year now. I have been searching for a automatic transmission dip stick as mine is not correct. In my search it has become obvious that there are few. In 1970 only 400 were made for the US and many were converted to manual or something else. As a result I have yet to encounter even 1 still standing. There must be some but it is an interesting question. Thanks in advance for any information.

Bob, I will look at my listings, unfortunately the Registry can not be sorted by VIN but there are 470 total 2800CS.
Check with @clinton stokes. He had one of the first US 2800 CS autos. I believe that he sold it recently. The buyer may be looking to ditch the auto.

There are 132 automatic 2800CS coupes in the US/NA in my database, 34 are from the 80/90s paper CS Registry and may not exist but they still show up from time to time. 526 were sent to North America so at least 20% survive, I think it is more like 25-30%.

My 7/70 2800cs started out as an auto. Still has the holes in rear for auto script.

Chris, Sorry I don't know the day. Is that supposed be on the driver's door label? I just looked at it and I couldn't make any numbers out except a zero. I remember seeing an 02 / 70 or Feb / 70 some time ago.
