update the car was a holiday coupe. Cool little story when my dad first got the car it had no engine or transmission while cleaning the car out he found a car from a machine shop out of Georgia so he called them up and they remembered the car and still had the original 455/th400 numbers matching swap for the car the swap was sent to them to rebuild it years ago and was never picked back up. So he went and payed the shop and brought them back for the restoration the 442 also had 2 scoups on the hood and the spoiler on the back

If the buyer was military, the car could be pretty much anywhere in the world as those guys tend to get moved around. Keep in mind that you last had any knowledge of the car's whereabouts more than 20 years ago. The chances of coming across it by random chance are about nil. But good luck.
