I ran across an original 69 engine today. Engine suffix is HY and VIN # is 1148. If you own this car or know someone who does please let me know and I will put you in touch with the owner. It is in Houston.

Text of the add below:

1969 Corvette Conv. 427 435hp Monaco Orange - $1 (Boring,)

© craigslist - Map data © OpenStreetMap(google map)
1969 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

VIN: 194679S712921
cylinders: 8 cylinders
drive: rwd
fuel: gas
odometer: 42000
paint color: orange
title status: parts only
transmission: manual
type: convertible

Please HELP! I am LOOKING for the CURRENT OWNER of this 69 Corvette, I have the ORIGINAL MOTOR for this Corvette. I owned this Corvette back in 1977, I removed the "original" 427 435hp engine back then and installed a small block 350 V8, I STILL have the ORIGINAL MOTOR for this car. Vehicle ID is 194679S712921 it was a Original Monaco Orange car with Black Interior and head rest seats, Factory Side Pipes and a White convertible top, Originally a 427-435hp Tri-power engine & 4 speed transmission. I sold the car back in 1977, it went to the vancouver wa. area for a few years and was then sold up to the SEATTLE Wa. area, that is ware I lost track of it. I checked with Washington State Police a few years back, they said it was NOT active in their "data base" BUT it could be in someones garage and not "currently" licensed and purged from the Washington State DMV system and or has left the state or gone up to Canada. ????? ANYWAY, I have the ORIGINAL ENGINE, If found, I want to either BUY the CAR BACK or SELL the ORIGINAL TRI-POWER 427-435hp ENGINE to the CURRENT OWNER. I do NOT wish to sell the engine to anyone else, sorry. If you own this 1969 corvette convertible or KNOW who does, please email or call show contact info
cell/Dave Thanks for reading my ad.

Best wishes,

Jack

Hi I'm trying to locate the 68 Corvette that this engine belongs in. 427 435hp TI222IRCF970795 the letter F might be the letter E it is hard to tell which one it is. Unfortunately I don't have the tri power intake and carbs it does have a 425hp winters snow flake intake.

The car still exists. It is listed in NMVTIS. $4.95 will get you the state that the car is currently registered in, but that is all they can / will provide.

Cost: $4.95 per VIN request.

There is no charge if no record is found.

Title History record is available.
Buy report for VIN 194679S712921 ($4.95).

I read this old post on the NCRS discussion board

I am looking for the present owner of a 1968 Corvette VIN 194678S419342. Car was sold in Charleston, SC in 1968. Was also in the PA area in 1969 and 1970. If you own this car and can prove it, I have a package that you will really treasure. I hope this car is still with us. Thanks!
