My Father built his 70 roadrunner in California when he worked for Chrysler, once the plant closed he had to sell it. Car may be in New Mexico or Texas. Thank you. Attached is the only thing I have of it.

Try your local Office where you register vehicles, you might get lucky and someone there will "run" the v.i.n., depending on what state your in

Just to ask how long as it been gone. Maybe you will find it in a barn in good condition. Yes maybe DMV might locate it. Or possible social media like face book. That is what every one seems to be into now day's.

There's a bunch of them for sale on line. Long shot, but you might want to comb through all the adds. You might get lucky.

Sadly it was sold to an old friend of my Dad's just after Vietnam in California. The guy moved to New Mexico where he currently lives. He traded in for a truck in the early 80's. While driving in El Paso Texas a long time ago he spotted it so I'm guessing it's in the Texas, New Mexico area. Trying to get my Parents and some of their friends to dog up some pics but they are all in their 70-80's so it might be awhile lol.

NICB VIN search states that the car has not been stolen, registered, or scrapped since approx 1993. Any record before then will be paper only. At this point, your best plan is to go back to where it was sold/traded and start a long trek asking everyone who may have been alive back then if they can remember seeing it or may know where it went before 1993. I would recommend any and all old-style junkyards and places where good cars go to rust away. You will need an incredible amount of luck.
