Car in body shop was sold without knowledge..advice needed!

About 3 years ago my dad had found a 76 Vette in need of some serious work.. Over the past 3 years he has had the 350 engine in it completely reworked and chromed out, has had the car painted 50th anniversary Corvette Maroone totally redone interior and all the little nic nac parts needed.....
Over $15K has been invested and over the past year it has sat in the body shop getting little parts here and there located and put on the car...My dad has been begging him over the past several months to get it done so he can get it back over the the engine shop and get all the wires hooked up and the get the engine running...
Just today he goes there to check on it and he tells my dad he sold the car...WTF after he already gave the guy $10K for paint and body work and parts....My dad started laughing becasue he somewhat knows the guy, and thought he was joking with him...When he realized he was serious he said he got in the car and left becasue he didn't want to kill the guy and have the police called...
He said that my dad owed him more money from the interior work and that he's been calling him, that he sent him a certified letter and so forth...My dad didn't receive any because for damn sure he would have been there right away bc this car is his baby right now...Meanwhile several months back my dad was beggin the guy to get the car done and out of there...to come today and realize it's gone....
Needless to say a lawyer is getting involved and some serious lawsuits are going to be filed but in the mean time where can I go to see where and who the car was sold to...We want to notify them to keep the car in their possession because it will soon be the main focus of a lawsuit case!
An ideas where we can check?

Wow! That's terrible!!

I wouldn't know where to start, but I would think the local police dept might be able to help.

I hope your dad gets his car back!

If it was registered and INSURED call the ins company.

They will have you call the police to report it stolen and file a report.

Then that goes back to ins to also go about helping get it situated.

MINIMUM

Call the police and file a stolen car report.

Hmmm... What is that tv show that they always tell the owner that their car was stolen but in reality they were working on it getting everything 'pimped' out.

That would be the only positive thing that could possible come out of this...

GOOD LUCK

As Tim said this is the aegis of lawyers. Let him earn his fee.

Yea it would be nice but not probable since $15k has been ivested in it so far.

I tried pulling a car fax but they require 17 character vin and the car bring a 76 only has 16 character.

There's some more to it but I told the gist of it.

Car was not insured bc it he bought it from NC and trailered it all the way home to S Fl so he's already "bonded" somewhat with the car. From there he pretty much garaged it until he found a good guy to work on it and then it sat in the body shop for years now.

We want to get info so the guy doesn't sell it who has it now since it will be main focus in law suit. The guy gave us a name but all their info
leads to no where and phone #'s disconnected.

My dad has lost faith in the legal system bc by the time it's said and done it wi be years from now and his car was 90% complete. Just needed the engine hooked up and new wheels.

The scumbag guy even lost his radiator he had with the car which was a pita to find and we he found a new one it was almost $1k. He even had original glass t-tops said to be some if the rarest parts to find for that car anymore.

I know my dad has a great attorney but in the mean time I'm only looking for info on a place where to find some info using the vin.
