How to find the original dealership the car was delivered to?

Wondering if there is a way to find out what dealership my car was originally delivered to using the VIN number. My car ( 66' Monza 2dr 110 PG ) came out of a small town near Pittsburgh, actually very close to Don Yenko Chevrolet. Thanks !

I believe the original window sticker stated which dealer the car was shipped to. That does not mean this was the selling dealer.

I'd love to find out more about my van but I don't think it's possible to access records to find out more. I've gone back to 1985 and North Carolina so far but I'm keen to find out what it did between 1961 and then, it only did 11,000 miles in that time. Maybe it was a NC vehicle from new?

We have been down this road many times. GM in the US does not have records for Corvairs and other Chevrolet models. Some of the Corvette guys got a hold of the records from the transportation company that delivered the vehicles. They claim they only have info for Corvette, Nova, Camaro and Chevelle. No info for any other models.

See if your state will do title search. I paid the state of NC for a title search and 1st title assignment for my car was Parkland Chevrolet in Asheville, NC 1966. Lucky for me my car has only lived in NC. Might be tricky if it was all over the place.

Many of my Corvairs had the original license plate frame with the dealers name on it.

But that would not be an accurate method B W Dave as many dealers would put their frames on when the car was in for service. The Volvo dealer I worked at would change many frames that way (usually after obtaining the owners permission).
