I am new to the forum. I own a 64 1/2 170c.i. 'vert and would really like to find out about the previous life. I know it was a DSO 13 car (New York). I bought it in Florida and I know the previous owner. I also know the name of the owner before him but that is where the trail runs cold.
does anyone know how I would go about finding the previous owners?

Yes, once you learn the dso and everything from the previous owner, everything is lost. If the previous owner knew the one before him, that'd give you a lot more information.
Something a little odd about my car: The door tag on the door obviously isn't the original tag for the car, and the tag on the fender was made by someone to match the one on the door (doesn't even look original) so it's not uncommon to have a car with 2 VIN numbers stamped on it. After 45 years of wrecks, restorations, ect finding out the history of these cars is very hard to do. I think about mine everyday, Who originally bought it? What kind of memories did they make with the car? Where has my car been?
The only thing you can do is talk to the previous owners.
Or you could do what I did: Take apart the interior to find a speeding ticket and a pay stub from 20 years ago. I have one of the previous owners' name, location, workplace, and social security number... Note to self, if you're going to sell the car, make sure all your information is OUT OF IT! haha

Thanks to all for the suggestions. I have spoken to the previous owner and he had the name and address of the owner before him but I have run into a dead-end.
I will try and google the previous owners and vin and see if I can get somewhere that way.
