Any idea where your dad bought it from? If new does the dealer still exist?
Do you have the insurance company name your dad used? They may have the vin still on their records.
Look through that pile of papers for service records also, some places used vin numbers on them also.
Good luck and keep us informed we love these stories!
Of course if you find it and purchase it you will have to join for life and cruise with us.....just sayin..

Unless you know the name of the feller that bought it, and can contact him, we/you will definitely need a VIN. More info, such as body/interior color, engine size, trans(auto/manual), and any modifications that may have been done to it will help narrow down the search.
If you can come up with the VIN, you can do a search HERE to see if it is registered at C3VR to one of our members. After that, you might be able to do a Title Search with your state DMV. A little harder to do these days, but worth a shot.
We'll help as much as we can to try and reunite you with your Dad's old Corvette. Thumbs Up
