Wondering if anyone might have information regarding my 1939 Plymouth Coupe
In 1968 a couple of young people towed a 1939 Blue and Black Plymouth Coupe from my home in Kenmore, Washington. They had promised to pay $35 for the car which had a frozen engine block. They said they would return shortly to pay me and I said I would keep the Title until they returned with payment. They never returned. I am just curious if anyone might be able to provide information regarding the car. It had a dimple dent in the front fender and a crease dent in the trunk. The body was light blue and the fenders were black. The interior had been ravaged by mice and little material was left. I imagine they parted out the old coupe and there is little chance of retracing what happened. I am not interested in any claim on the vehicle, just curious to see what might have happened to it. It was originally my uncle's car and was my first car. I soon went on to a 57 chev and neglected the coupe, consequently finding little value at the time in keeping it. Perhaps too, there is someone who's conscience might still be bothering them about their failure to pay for the car back in 1968. Thank you for reading my post.

I don't know if what help this is if any but what do you have to lose? I don't have much experience with the DMV nor do I know if they will be able to give you any information but seeing how you still have the title, perhaps they will be able to tell you if any vehicles matching that VIN number have been registered. Just a complete shot in the dark, but better than nothin. God Bless.
