Hey you guys, is there a way a civilian can find a 1969 GT6 sold in Lebanon, NH back in the mid seventies? My Mom had one,She had it painted dark Ford blue over factory primrose, and I would like to know where she went(the car, not my Mom). And no she does not know the serial number.

And due to its age, its possible that it your moms may been repainted once more. But I'll keep my eye out for one matching that description, and wish you luck.

My mom owned a 1971 yellow VW, bought it new. A year ago, I found the actual receipt from the dealer for it, including VIN. I went to a forum, much like this, and someone found it for me. The address and google satellite images confirming, but it was an hour away in a not nice area, so I never went to confirm. Plus, its not like I was going to buy it. At least not that point in my life. Well, that forum had some data loss, that thread including the VIN and location was forever gone, and I no longer had the receipt with VIN.

As far as "civilians" go, someone did what is called a "vehicle inquiry" on my very first car. We had sold it 8 years ago, but was left abandoned by someone who was not the buyer, and this other person wanted to buy it. It was never retitled, so after filing a loss title, we were legally the new owners again. So it is possible, but you need a VIN. Does your mom have any tax boxes from way back when? Thats where I found my moms VW VIN.

Without knowing the VIN, there really is no way. Especially since the car may not have a current registration. My GT6 hasnt been registered since 1993. Since then, it has traveled many places, and had many owners.

Thanx for the info, I suspected it would take the serial number to mount a realistic search, and she is looking for the number. Your GT looks good...all in one piece what a novelty, I hope to try that someday soon.

I don't suppose the DMV would be able to release any of that info, would they? I've thought about hunting down and old '77 VW Scirocco I once owned. I thought if I gave them the license plate number I recall having on it, they might be able to give a serial number and then I could run a CARFAX? I dunno. I'd be interested to hear if there is a solution. Maybe if you tell the CIA you hid some C4 in one of the fenders they'd help you track it down...

I don't think that would work, John (except maybe for the C4 scenario :wink: )! Besides, even if you could get that VIN, I don't think CarFax works before the 1981 model year.

DMV/County Clerk rules vary with each state and sometimes county. Regardless, going in with a smile, and maintaining it during your visit, and fully explaining why you are looking for it might get you somewhere. You will need a VIN unless they are willing to go from your mom's name and address from the time. If they even can, depending upon how computerized their records are. Your mom being with you would add a lot of credibility to your story too.

My neighbor bought one that could be close to that. He trailered it in from Maryland about 10 years ago or so. It sat in his driveway for many years, with him planning to restore it. I think he has moved it to a storage garage he has a few miles away. If your mother's car made it to Maryland, it may be a possibility.
