Default Need Help Locating my Dad's 55 Convertible

I grew up into a great Tri-Five family (From the Vancouver BC area in Canada) and my dad has had many cars over the years. One car that has been our all-time favorite is this 1955 Chevy Convertible we called "Minerva", that my dad sold in 1997 and we missed dearly. I've kept track of its whereabouts and actually found it while I was in Montreal at a big classic car dealership and managed to get a picture with it in 2010. Since then I've seen it make it across the border into the US and last seen sold at this auction in 2014:

https://www.classiccarratings.com/au...convertible-13


It was a Canadian built car (Oshawa Ontario). I believe it was originally an all Black car with Red interior but my dad bought it, and last seen as a Skyline Blue and India Ivory with Dark Blue/Gray interior with a white top. Some distinguishing details is the headlight eyebrow accessories, which I have not seen on another 55 ever, they come to a a blunt point in the middle (unlike a Nomad), Has a 265 Power Pack 4bbl with chrome valve covers (added later, when my dad had it was a plain 2bbl car). It had the 3spd with working Overdrive, which made it sort of rare too. Underside is painted body colour (as Canadian Built cars were). Lastly the Trunk inserts are actually building tar paper which is smooth not textured as original.

Any Help locating this car would be appreciated. It's nice to see where it is now. We often joked if we won the lottery we would buy it back. Thanks for reading.

Do you know the VIN # ? If so:

Finding cars by vin #

I for $9.95 you can get the info.

1. Go to http://www.add123.com/

2. Enter the VIN in the space and hit "Search Vehicle History"

3. The next page comes up and tells you how to pay the $2.50.

4. Pay that, click on their "agree to policy" and they'll send you the report.

It will tell you what state it's titled in, when the title was issued, and whether it's salvaged, not original miles etc. It will not tell you who owns it or what city it's in.

Good luck and let us know what you find - we love this stuff!
