Lost 1974 Road Runner - Big Long Shot

Hey Everyone,

This is a huge long shot but I thought I would give it a try. Here's the story;

In July 1976 my uncle was killed in a work related incident. My parents purchased his 1974 Road Runner from my grandpa. Just a couple months later, on October 10, 1976, I was born. When we were released from the hospital my very first car ride was in this 1974 Road Runner. Fast forward 41 years and I would really like to find that car.

Since that time I have been absolutely obsessed with cars. I have owned 56 cars since I started to buy them in high school so I would love to find the first car I ever rode in.

About the car, it is was a 318 3-sp manual from the factory in Silver Frost paint with red stripes and black interior. It was a black bench seat so of course no console. It had 15" moon chrome wheels on it and the stripes weren't on the roof. In about 1978 or so the paint started cracking on the roof. My dad removed the stripes off the roof and repainted that section. The paint had more issues to he had to repaint the roof a few times before sanding it down and finding the reason in the way the roof was put on at the factory and bondo'd in place. Anyway, the stripe over the roof was never reinstalled so when it went to the new owner it would have only had the side stripe going up the C pillar and then stopping but not extending over the top.

After about 10 years my mom sold the car to her brother and it went down hill from there. I remember the trunk missing the lock etc. It would have been sold to someone locally in the southwest WA/Portland, OR area in about 1986.

I know I have some more images of the car but I will have to look some more. These aren't the best but with the manual transmission and stripes missing from the roof, maybe someone will remember seeing it. Any help would be appreciated but I am not holding my breath. Thanks.
