Default Looking for a specific car 1979 VIN 9289201723

My dad owned this car from 1979 to 1987.

i learned to drive in it as a kid.

Iĺve been a long time member here and have had my own 1987 S4 for about a decade.

My dad passed away a few weeks ago and while cleaning out his stuff today I found a pile of maintenance records from 1983 that included the VIN to the 928.

It's not in the 928OC registry.

Thanks Stan! Hope all is well with you.

Its a USA 1979 Mocha Brown, all tan interior, 5 speed, no sunroof, would have needed some paint and body work on the drivers door and passenger fender.

Originally a Colorado car. We traded it in to Herbert Motors Jeep dealer in Longmont Colorado in 1987. 109k at trade in.

Had a few screw holes in the in the center armrest where the 1980s mobile phone was mounted.

Also missing the pliers....cause I still have them 😂


It wouldnĺt surprise me if it reached the end of its life in a junkyard somewhere.

Have you tried hiring a private investigator? I think they'd be able to check all the DMVs for any registration information. Once they have a last registered owner, it would just be a matter of locating them to find out where the car is or what happened to it.

First, you have my condolences, finding his car is a worthy pursuit.

NelaK has a great point. At least start with a search of Colorado's database.

Best of luck on this one!
