Anybody seen my Greenbrier?

The thread on the "VD" engine code reminded me of my old Greenbrier. Bought new in July 1963 by my Dad at Davidson Chevrolet in Denver. 1963, standard trim, 4-speed, 102-hp engine. It was school-bus yellow (Yuma Yellow?) with white stripe and fawn interior. Had a "Davidson" metal dealer script on the left tail door. For some reason I still remember the engine code - T0523VD - but I don't have the vin, other than the obvious part - 3R126S.

I sold it almost thirty years ago (when I lived in San Diego), to a guy who flew in from his home in Dallas and drove it home. I haven't seen it since, but it occurs to me that if it's still around there's at least some chance that it's with someone who's on this forum.

I deeply regret selling it, and I'd pay well to get it back. So - anybody seen my Greenbrier?

Here is an illustration from the 1962 Chevrolet Dealer's Album:



1963 Paint Code is 549 for two tone Yuma Yellow with Cameo White stripe.
This would appear on the Data Plate on the front inside cowl assembly - near the fuseblock

1963 would have amber park/turn light lenses. Standard trim does not have the bright stainless around the windshield.
Chrome bumpers were available as an option on Standard trim Greenbrier.

Thanks Dan. Mine had the standard white-painted bumpers, and I don't think it had ANY options other than the 102 engine and the 4-speed. My Dad was kind of like that. I remember him beating up on the salesman, too, until he got the bus for $2626, which is the number that he had decided was the right price.

I'll look and see if I have any pics to scan.

Mikey,

If you have an old registration or the ID number, Corvanatics has a FC registry.
That would be a good start.
