    You can probably find it's current location through Carfax.com if you know the VIN.

    You might be able to call the DMV and see if they have records back that far and can tell you the VIN that was registered to those plates. I doubt they can, but you have nothing to lose by trying.

    Thanks,
    I just did that.
    They said they don't have that Plate # in their system.
    Possible Reasons:
    Truck Moved out of State.
    Truck is Totaled
    or I don't quite have the Plate # number correct.

    I'm going to go dig up some old pics, and see if I hve the plate # correct.

    It might not matter. Not sure but, I don't think there was such a thing as a vin number in 1965.

    It seems that they used VIN's as early as 1950, however a standard was developed in th 80's for unique decoding (DNA).

    History of the VIN

    Detroit automobile manufacturers began stamping and casting identifying numbers on cars and their parts in the mid 1950's . The primary purpose of this vehicle identification number (VIN) was to give an accurate description of the vehicle when mass production numbers were starting to scale in very significant numbers. The early VINs came in a range of variations depending on the individual manufacturer at that time.

    In the early 1980's the U.S. National highway Traffic Safety Administration (USDOT) required that all road vehicles must contain a 17 character VIN. This established the standard fixed VIN system which major vehicle manufacturers use currently. The result was a unique "DNA" style number for each individual vehicle rolled off the assembly line.
