Since you're taking about a car prior to the use of 17 digit VIN's, that's going to be tough unless there is some kind of Oldsmobile registry that kept track of them. Even if such a registry exists, it would stiil be a crap shoot since someone would have actually had to submit that particular cars' info for it to be there.

I'm not sure about your state, but shouldn't you be able to have the DMV run the VIN for you? If it has left the state, you might not be able to find it.

In Utah we have this annoying process ran by the DMV that allows them to know if your car is insured or not. That's where I would look first. Not so sure if they would give you any info on the owner or not but at least you might be able to know where the car is at.

Due to Federal Privacy laws, NO ONE will tell you where a particular vehicle is anymore, or who owns it. I tracked down a Chevelle after 23 years by going to my local DMV and inquiring about it. It was still in my state and had a current license. That is all they would tell me. What the person there did offer was for me to write a note to the current owner and then they mailed it to them. I did hear back and saw the car again that year.

Now I know this is not supposed to be done and is against Police policy but if you happen to know a cop and he is a friend he may be able to get the info for you.
