1971 Chevelle with 72 front end

I bought this car in 1992 right before I got my license. I did a full restoration on it in high school and then ended up selling it in 1996 and I have regretted it ever since. I have searched high and low for the VIN and no luck. It was a 1971 Chevelle with a 350/350 on the column. It was hit in the front prior to being sold to me and someone put a 72 front clip on it. It was a factory A/C car in gold/tan colors. I did it up like you see here. It also would have had holes drilled into the floor for the driveline loop that I put on for drag racing. The car was sold to a friend of mine who did the engine bay up like in the image. One thing I remember is that he painted the intake white. If I remember right he sold it in 96 or 97 to some in Portland OR. Any help would be appreciated.

The original color is Placer Gold with Beige interior so the trim tag will show these colors even though I am sure it is still black on black currently.

Re: 1971 Chevelle with 72 front end

I have been searching for the VIN and tonight I was going though the closet in my office. I kept thinking for some reason it was in my US history notebook from high school. After finally finding the notebook I scrolled through the pages and found the bill of sale I wrote out to the guy I sold it to. So...the VIN is 1363712L126694!

The VIN is 136371L126694, it looks like I added an extra number. According to VIN Audit it looks like the car was registered in 10/2010 in Kentucky.

I received an anonymous email saying that this Chevelle is owned by a guy named Charles W. in Livingston County KY. Anyone know this person?
