If you go to your local license office ,for a fee they might check it for you,if they do not then stop at a used car lot and see how much they will charge you to run a car fax,normally $25.00

Hope you find it!

First of all I wish you the best of luck in your search. Hopefully somebody who owns this car will stumble upon your question.

I thought I would let you know that you can also try to contact your local DMV/DOT and see what help they can provide you. It probably isn't much but it's worth a shot. Wyoming DOT -
You can also try this website - where you can post the information and details about your father's vehicle.

Again, good luck.

Tracking down long lost cars takes a tremendous amount of time and patience!! In reality, no one is going to seek you out and say "Hey, I think I have a car you may want". Although it has happened in the past, it is very rare!

My best advice: Start by trying to track down the people who your dad sold the car to, ask relatives, neighbors, aunts uncles, etc. Each time you find someone which owned the car after your father it is like another step closer to finding the car. Like I said, it takes lots of time and patience but don't give up, keep the search up, even when someone says they don't remember, they may have a memory lapse weeks after you asked.
