I have an oddball question/situation that perhaps you can help me with (or not which is OK too). I figured the worst that can happen is I continue to get nowhere on this project. But some of you are car nuts like me or might have a suggestion or a connection that could help me out so it can’t hurt to ask.
When my Dad was serving in the Army, stationed in Germany, he ordered and purchased A 1963 MG convertible (which is actually a British-made car). He was able to enjoy Germany with it and then when his tour was up he had it shipped back to the United States (Illinois) where he continued to own it until my parents got married in ~ 1970 when he sold it.
As you can guess by this post, I’m trying to track it down. Unfortunately, I’m at a loss as to how I can legally locate the car and, if anything, provide my contact info to the current owner (this assumes that it still exists of course). One of the bigger hurdles I’ve run into is that any of the Online search tools use a modern VIN format that cars made pre-1978-ish don’t use today so Uncle Google isn’t of much help to me.
I’m just not sure how I can go about locating the car or like I said getting the current owner my info .
If you have any suggestions/advice/connections/ ideas, I’m all ears.
Thanks in advance for your time !!!
