Default Bertha's history in North Carolina

I bought Bertha in her original form out of Ocala, FL in Feb. 2007. I know very little about her history other than she spent time at Jacksonville Naval Air Station in 1978 (due to gate sticker on bumper). I believe she was sold to someone in the Navy in 1976 to 78 because of the registration I found squirreled away in the seats as I pulled them apart recently. I have tracked down who I believe is the owner listed on the registration in 1976, but unfortunately it was through FindAGrave as the person (who may be the person listed and would be in the correct age range) passed away in 2007 (followed by his wife in 2011).

Is there anyone here by chance that happens to be from Deep Run, NC (address on registration) or Inman, SC (where they are buried) that could possibly know them? I know it is a massive shot in the dark trying to find someone who knows this person or relatives to confirm or deny the person listed on the registration ever owned the car. I am one of those sentimental old fools that love to have as much historical background on items I have.

I found the owner of my car through Face Book, it was my last resort and because the surname were many I got a response back from the last owner as I was going down the list

You might try looking for obituaries or calling funeral homes in the area. They might know some relatives of the person. I once tracked a previous owner of a 56 I had. They lived in Massachusetts at the time.

On another note, did you ever happen to run across any pictures of the turquoise 57 4 door hardtop that you said looked like the one I bought? I think you said you might have seen it in Alabama a year or two ago?

I sure did! These were taken on Oct 15, 2016. After looking at them, it’s clearly not your car!

Nope it’s not it, but that’s a nice looking car. The guy I bought mine from said that it had come out of Alabama when he bought it. I don’t know where though.

Good luck with that Eldon. Coincidentally I bought my 57' in 2007 too. That's also when I joined TriFive.
