Location of a 1955 Chevy

New Driver

In 1979 , I sold a 1955 Chevy Belair 2 door post. I am now attempting to locate the vehicle. Unfortunately I did not have  a copy of the VIN, nor make a copy of the title. To date, I have checked  with the local and state tag office,  giving them the tag number the car was registered under. I am told the current records do not go back that far in time. I have also checked with the company that insured the vehicle. They also hit a dead end, due to the time frame. I inquired with local law enforcement, regarding an accident record, thinking they would have recorded the VIN.  I  was not able to find anything in this situation either. Does anyone have a suggestion of something else I might be able to try?

Your best bet are national car magazines...like Hemmings...place an ad in the "tri-five" section that you are searching for a '55 you owned previously...details unique to the car..engine, paint, interior...other mods...a location you suspected it went to after sale...and...a post a photo of it if you have one...GOOD LUCK!
