Missing trim tag

Purchased a 65 Chevelle wagon from California with black plates. There is no trim tag to help with options that are on the car now that may not have been originally. In this day of identity theft,is it possible to find a list of prior owners? The owner prior to the seller I purchased it from is pissed because he wanted to buy it back if it came up for sale again.That's as far as I got. I know I could have a tag made with whatever I want,but would like to know some history of the car.It's a 4 door wagon with A/C,power bench,windows,rear window,steering,brakes,full tint,12 bolt,f/r sway bars. There are no seat belts in it,but some threaded holes on the side pillars,for shoulder belts? Were these added or for something else?

Due to privacy concerns it's almost impossible to trace the history of an older car. If the car was built at the Fremont plant there's not much on the tag in the way of options anyway aside from trim and paint. See http://chevellestuff.net/1965/chevelle/tags/65-bf.htm for some Fremont tag examples and you'll note they do not list options in groups like atlanta, Euclid, Framingham, and Kansas City did. Yes, you could have a tag made (at $225+) but most of the information would be a guess and would be easily spotted as a reproduction tag. If the tag is gone, it's gone.

I don't think shoulder belts were a factory option but certainly could have been added at a later time.
