I stumbled upon an old file of my dads with info about his first v8 car. He has always talked about it and how he hated selling it, but would never show me pictures.

Car was a 65 Monza coupe crown v8 conversion. Was sold May of 1981 to a guy in Fullerton, CA according to the bill of sale and title transfer paperwork.

VIN# 105375W148936. Color at the time was a root beer brown. Had a corsa dash and other corsa parts.

I know its a major shot in the dark, but it just might still be out there. If I can find a VIN on his old 65 fitch sprint turbo convertible, ill post that too.

The color makes me think of maybe Chuck Rust's car.

Chuck is on the far left in the Tahoe convention picture.

Cody, Good luck!

If you are not able to find it this way you can pay DMV in Calif and have a title search done. I think it is $25...

Well, chasing several dead ends came up empty. I am still curious to whether it survived.

After 4 1/2 years are there any new ideas?

Any distinguishable features? Obviously engine and wheels could be changed.
