Trying to find my grandpas 1968 coronet rt.
#1
Over the past year I’ve been trying to track down my grandpas 1968 coronet rt that he sold in May or June of 69 somewhere in Detroit area he doesn’t remember what dealer though, but the problem is that he doesn’t think he has any pictures or paperwork with anything on it anymore. Is there anyway we could find anything anymore? He had bought it at Stanford dodge in Lincoln park Michigan on December 2 1967. He had it in dark blue with a black vinyl top. He also had ordered it with turn singles on fenders, 8 track radio, black bucket seats with headrests, and rallye dash. He had a 440 with the 3 speed automatic, the engine was not numbers matching and was replaced at same dealer around 8 months after he got it. His name is Claude short if anyone would know anything.

Max is so fast I had to put a Quadrajet on it to slow it down so Ol Blue could keep up

Unfortunately without a VIN or any paperwork showing who it may have gone to after your grandfather sold it will make it almost impossible to find.    The building that housed the dealer still exists, it's an auto-tinting shop and the service department is now a repair shop/used car lot..

Did find this pic though..

No old pictures, but it's now known as Victory Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram Toyota.  The dealer sold Dodges and then Toyota's, and also had lot of used car lots around Marietta. The dealership now looks like every other CDJR dealer.  

One of the used car lots

   

The owner when your car was sold was Cecil Pottmeyer who passed away in 2016, apparently he founded it after coming back from Korea.   Members of the Pottmeyer family still own it, it's part of a dealership chain one of his kids started in TN called Victory.
