As a follow up to a previous post. I have tried google searches to find what Dodge dealers may have been in Central Indiana in late 1968- Feb 1969. I can't seem to find anywhere that has any kind of info on this. I know Palmer Dodge in Indianapolis and the dealer in New Castle but that is about it. I know many have been renamed since Chryslers financial troubles of the late 70s. Anyone have any info on where I might find this info?

Awesome, ty so much for the info. The ad from Eastside is not mine. It seems very similar but mine is silver with red interior. I know Goeke is now Kahlo in Noblesville too. Going to start trying to contact some of these that still exist and see if they may have records of sales in early 69.

You could try checking your vin with both wing clubs for any back history owners or locations.Also Daniel Liebrant on fb runs a charger 500 registry.
A newspaper.com search with keyword. As 69 charger 500 a certain part of Indiana or a certain newspaper.Might find it's dealer or it's classified ad

In Feb. 1969, East Side Dodge (Indy) had (4) Charger 500s available, including a Silver one.

This is probably your car!

You're very welcome!

They had sold one of the (4) by March, and were down to (2) in April.

By the way, you'll see in the one ad that the dealership was owned by Mr. & Mrs. Paul Rattermann. Not a very common name, so you may be able to track down a family member with more info, and possibly vintage memorabilia from the dealership.
