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.

1969 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible

odometer: 42000
paint color: orange
title status: parts only
transmission: manual

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,
