Comments: "I completely restored this car. There are two distinguishing things about it.It was originally a business coupe. I converted it to a five-passenger coupe and installed a fuel tank in the trunk, covered by a plywood box cover. Also, the A/C vents were built into the lower dash. It looked as if it was original. Also, the radio looked original but was a 8-track player radio loaded through the original preset keys. Last that I know the car was painted red with Corvette Rally wheels and sold to Earl's boss at GM plant in Indianapolis. At some point was stored in a barn with other cars."

The only thing I did to it was clean it up and put a new front seat cover and a white headliner. I sold it to a friend for about $750 when it started using oil and smoking a little. I drove it for about a year. I would really like to know what happened to it."

Comments: "I bought this car in 1988 for $25. I drove it from Fl. to NC and while stationed at Fort Bragg, NC in 1990, the car was left for seven months while I was in Desert Storm. When I came home, I went and bought a new car, and a friend from Kentucky wanted to use the engine and tranny for his pick up. He took the car and stored it at a friends house in the country side, and the car was last seen there in NC in the Spring Lake area or a small town to the northeast of Fort Bragg. He never used the engine, so the car may still be in the friend's yard. The car had wood siding which was very faded and had a white fender on the front right side. There were multiple surf stickers on the rear of the car, and a large sticker that said "Natural Art." There would have been a FORT BRAGG army sticker on the front windshield. I would love to fix that thing up if it is still around. If it's in your yard, just send me an email. Thank you for looking."

Comments: "This car was purchased from Dan Luker in Vidor, Texas in 1977. It was sold in 1983 due to illness and then traded to a Nederland, Texas car lot for a Mercedes coupe. The last known registration was in Florida in 1993 to a Carlos Mesa(?). I know it has been sold at least once more, but it is no longer registered in Florida. This car was the love of my life. Any information as to its whereabouts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks."

The 4x4 is full time with only two positions: High and low. The VIN breaks down to a 454 CID but the glove compartment tags says 350 CID with the same VIN. I have seen a glove tag on a '75 which is a complete different shape. He found this info on the vehicle somewhere online that proves that there only two made, I have no idea where to look. This might be a good brain teaser for you, let me know if you can help. Thanks, Steve Nathan, (609)-751-7911."

Comments: "My mom bought this car from her uncle in Virgina, then we moved to Mass. I had thought that I would be given this car from my parents until they decided to sell it just before I was able to get my license at 16. They sold it to a student at Babson College, who lived overseas, for $1,500. I would doubt they would have spent the money to send it back, and either kept it or ended up selling it. I have all the registration information but have been unable to locate the Malibu. I would love to know if it has been junked or if someone has fixed it up. It was candy apple red with a black hard top, and black interior with a 6-cyl. engine. Any information would be helpful. Thanks!"

Comments: "Hi everyone, I'm new to the club, so, please bear with me on this one. Back in February 1981, I was about to turn 16 yrs old. My parents were going to give me their car - a car that I had worked on since I was 12, a car that I loved (only you fellow car guys and girls will understand that term of endearment). Anyway, in January 1981 the car was stolen along with my dreams. I am now 42 and I'm still looking for that car. I dream of it often. I find my self searching for it on eBay all the time. So, please if anyone has it or knows of it please let me know. I would like the chance to buy it back or at the very least, I want the comfort of knowing that it has survived. The car is a 1966 Chevrolet II Nova, 283 CID/185HP. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Have a great day!"

Comments: "Help find history on my '68 Corvette. It may have been a stolen vehicle at one time. It was built the week of Christmas 1967. The trim tag code is E26, date completed December 26, 1967. It is VIN 194678S407601. Itís a white top convertible and #7601 for 1968 (5683 through 7922 were built in December 1967.) The color is paint code 988, Cordovan Maroon, with trim code standard, black vinyl interior. The 427/390 HP engine has T0105 IL 18S41087 on the block pad (block casting 3916321). This was not the original engine, but came from a Corvette built in January 1968 (0105=January 5th to be exact). Iíd really like to know more about how this happened, and who was the owner then. The automatic transmission is stamped with 18S407601, a VIN matching number. It has the original (stamped 1AW) 3.08 H.D. Posi-traction rear axle. Interestingly, the heads are #3964291 Hi-Perf GM6T L270 and E770, which are 1970 454/470 HP heads (per Vette Vues Fact Book.) Plus, the intake manifold is #3963569, also 1970 454/470 HP (750 Holley carb.) What else was done to upgrade the engine, and who was the owner then? I bought it in September 1999 from James V. and Donna Hilburn in Shawnee, Kansas. The mileage was 27,382 (could be 127,382, but the original door panels, interior, etc. look in very good condition). He had purchased it in February 1999 from CnV Corvettes in Scottsdale, Arizona. There is no VIN on the windshield pillar post. The state of Kansas put a new VIN tag on the driverís side door jamb for James. What happened to the original VIN tag? The whole underside of the car is relatively rust free and in very nice shape, so I donít think the windshield frame had to be replaced because of rust. There has been some repair work to the left front, so there appears to have been some minor (?) damage at some point. What happened and how serious was the damage, and who was the owner then? Can anyone provide me with any details on the history of my 'Vette? Where was it purchased? Where did it spend its life? Is it possible that anyone might have any original paper work on my 'Vette? Did you or a friend of yours own my 'Vette? Any ideas on where else to search?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Comments: "This car was originally sold at BowMac in downtown Vancouver, BC Canada, I was the third owner of this car. The original color was Cordovan Brown with a tan interior. It was repainted dark green in aproximately 1965. Last time I saw the car was in 1972 and it still had the the 327 engine, bored .030", FI pistons, 1.94 double hump head, solid lifter 340HP Duntov solid lifter cam, 350HP aluminum intake and 600cfm Holley, finned aluminum valve covers. The 4-spd. shifter was a Hurst Competetion Plus. Original style wheels and spinner hubcaps where still on the car. I have contacted the person I sold the car to but no luck - he doesn't even remmember it. I do not have the VIN number but I do have the last known license plate (#HBA589) and know it was registered in British Columbia, Canada. Anyone out there who may be able to assist, please contact me. Thank you, John DeBoon."

Comments: "This was a car my dad bought when I was 14-years-old. I restored it myself and drove it for over 11 years in Vancouver, Wash., before selling it to buy my first home. I sold it while living in Kennewick, Wash., to a fellow I think was named Bob Graham. I believe he lived in Coeur d'Alene, ID. The car had a T400 automatic transmission at the time, and the trunk was not yet finished (was cutout to accomodate the bigger tires). Leaf springs were moved in-board. There is a tell-tale marking on the car; if you push on the headliner while sitting in the driver seat, you will feel a cutout in the felt glued to the roof steel that are the letters "S" and "M". Also, the car was an original 6-cylinder so it did not have the V8 scripts on the hood and trunk lid.

The VIN number began with "C56," not "VC56" as it was a 6-cylinder. Also, the manufacturing plant was Oakland, Calif., so the digit after the "56" is the letter "O" not zero. I will add the remaining numbers later. My hope is to find the car for my son as he is getting to be of that age. I will offer a $1,000 finders fee to anyone who helps me locate it and I am successful in making a purchase. Thanks!

Mark Holmberg

Comments: "My parents bought this car in May 1955 and sold it to 16-year-old Chuck Keller in 1964 for $175. I wish I could have talked them into saving it for my brother and I but we were only six years old at the time and had no good place to store it anyway. According to Chuck, it had less than 50,000 miles on it when he got it. He kept it stock and well maintained for the three years he had it (even bought new Firestone wide whitewalls - $40 a piece! - when the tires needed replacing). In 1967 he sold the car to Ray Legasse, an older gentleman, who bought it for his wife. Ray worked at Portland Copper and Tankworks and lived on Running Hill Road in South Portland or Scarborough. If this car survived into the 70's with the original powertrain intact, hopefully someone with foresight grabbed it. If it was restored or repainted in the '70s, it could have very well been painted a more popular color combination such as red/white with a new interior to match. If the cowl tag wasn't changed it would still have #604 for the paint number and #526 for the trim number. In 1986 I had a friend check to see if it was still registered in Maine and it wasn't but the VIN on the old registration I have says VG55B instead of the correct VC55B that I had my friend look up. My brother and I would love to know if the car survived. Neither one of us can afford it right now as we're both raising families but it's my parents' 50th wedding anniversary next June and finding out that this car still exists would be a special surprise!"

Comments: "Car was purchsed originally from Clark & Taber Chevrolet in October '67 and was sold in 1974 for $400 with perfect body and original paint to local teen, but was seen the following year heavily damaged from side-swipe. This car belonged to my big brother who died prematurely many years ago of cancer. It was one of the favorite things in his life, but he needed a more economical and reliable car for work and was forced to sell it. I've tried many times over the years to find a similar Camaro, but it never worked out, and now that I'm one of the "have-nots" rather than the "haves", I realize I may never be able to afford to buy it back, but would simply like to know that it was owned by someone who shared Gerry's love for it and who might enjoy seeing original pictures and paper work. Thank you for any help you can give."

The car was repainted in the orignal colors had Baby Moon chrome wheels and I installed a power steering unit from a '54 Bel Air. The car had a 6 cylinder with a 3 speed on the column shift, which makes it pretty unusual. When I last saw the car it had a Nebraska reg with the plate that read "CAR54." I would love to find this car again."

The car itself was in really good condition and had American mags on it. I'd really love to find my first love. Call or e-mail me if you think you might know where it is or what happened to it.

Car last seen: 1967 in Steger, Ill.

Comments: "This Chevy was a full custom built by George Little's Body Shop in Alsip, Ill., during the years of 1960-1961. It was shown at Navy Pier, Amphitheater, and the Coliseum in Indianapolis from 1962 thru 1963. It also appeared in several magazines including Car Craft in 1964. The outstanding features of this car were: A chopped top with a three piece '57 Olds rear window; extended front fenders with two Chrysler headlights; rolled front pan; pancaked hood with louvers; chrome on the sides of the car from a 1958 Ford Fairlane 500; rear fenders extended 12 inches and housed twin '56 Packard tailights. The rear pan was also rolled; it also had the stering wheel chopped to look like a airplane wheel. The color of the car the last time I ssaw it was Peacock metalflake which is a blue and green mix. It was powered by a 348 with three duces and had a three-speed Corvette floor shifter. Interior was a bench seat, with colors of blue and white.

The last time I saw the car it was in a garage in Steger, Ill. I had made a deal to buy the car back but when I returned a couple of days later with a trailer to finish the deal the car was gone and the person had moved out. No one seemed to know him or where he might have gone. The loss of this car has left a empty spot in my heart and over the years I have found myself thinking of my old car and, "If I could only find it again" I wouldn't let it slip through my hands again!

In July 1975, I ran an add in Hot Rod magazine looking for the car. I received a few responses but they all ended up being not the same car. I then run an add in Hemmings Motor News looking for someone who might have see or heard about the car - again, the same response...dead end.

I even took the VIN and called each state in the US. Boy, what a phone bill that was and all the states have so many different policies regarding tracing a VIN. Again, another dead end.

Any help in finding this car would be greatly appricated."

The driveline was supposed to have a truck gear box and rear end; what year, we have no clue. The engine had a set of Hedman headers. The car also had power windows. I do not know any more than that. Every time we go to a car show or swap meet, my dad is always hoping he will find his car."

The car also got dual catalytic converters so the guess is that the car was sold in California, New York or Mass. The car was imported to Sweden somewhere around 1997 and I bought it in 2003. Any information about the time the car spent in the US is appreciated."

Comments: "Looking for my father's 1969 Z/28, a car he constantly talks about. He is the first owner and the car was bought in Long Island, NY. The car was originally blue with a black houndstooth interior. He sold it in the early '70s to a friend of his in Pennsylvania who then sold it in the early '80s to somebody who lived in Brooklyn. The car's most distinguishing features are American Racing 200D wheels and the color - a deep blue called "LeMans blue", (which I understand is a rare color on Z/28s) with white racing stripes. Also, the car did not originally come equipped with the cowl induction hood, but may have one on it. If you know of the whereabouts of this car please contact me."

Comments: "Looking for my old 1958 Chevy Sedan Delivery in Delray trim. This was not only my first car but also the start of my love afair with old cars. Bought at the young age of 17 for $500. I had big plans and even bigger dreams of totally restoring this unusual car. A 1958 Chevy Sedan Delivery, back in the day when all my freinds were into '55-'57s I chose to be different and got bit by the bug. I sold the car right after my first child was born, along with a '76 Toyota pickup to purchase a family car. In my heart I have never let this car go. I've only seen maybe two others since; it was truly a rare car. And to date I still wonder what ever happened to it. I don't know the VIN number, but I believe the California license number was TSZ 318 (black and yellow). At the time I sold her she was pale yellow with black wrinkle finish side panels. Under the hood was a recently rebuild 300 hp 327 cu, with Hedmann Headers, exhaust system was glasspacks and exited just in front of the rear end. Transmission was a three-speed with a floor shifter that had been converted from the orginal 3-on-the tree by the previous owner. All I did was replace the old tired shifter for a close ratio Hurst shifter. I replaced the old sedan delivery (bucket) seats up front with some high back turqouise buckets from either a Challenger or Cuda. The balance of the interior was black except the carpeting, which was green up front, and multi-colored (green and blue) long shag carpeting. The side panels in the back were covered with small flowered (green and blue) fabric that matched the curtains. American slotted mags all around, and air shocks on the rear for that '70s surfer look. Unfortunatly the owner of the radiator shop had plans to fix her up and use it as a company vehicle to advertise his company, so I'm not sure if he still owns it. I kept his card for years but never checked up on my baby except to drive around the area a couple of times, but that was years ago. I wish I had something with the VIN number because all the details I just described might have been changed over the years. But I had to try to find the "old girl" since I stumbled across this website. Please contact me if this car sounds at all familiar. Thank you for your time."

It did not come with a console, had a blue vinyl top and blue interior. I believe the original engine (350) was replaced with a hi-po 327. Shortly after sale, the new owner put a hood scoop on it. Car was purchased in Belair, Ohio, and had all the SS standard goodies: 12-bolt rear, power brakes, etc. I'm currently trying to track down the VIN and any help in how to do this would be appreciated. I currently have a '69 convertible restored to be a fake SS with similar options and would love to find his original car."
