This maybe a dumb question but, on the window sticker for my 69 Mustang it says “Sold to” Bill Grimes Ford Inc. 1303 S. Saginaw Midland MI. 48640.
I’m guessing this is the dealer where the Dearborn Plant sold my mustang to and it was sold to a person from there? The only reason I ask this is because the farthest back I can trace this car was to 1973 in Georgia. That’s kind of a long was off from Michigan, but stranger things have happened.

One other thing, I tried to look up Bill Grimes Ford Inc. guess they no longer exist? Anyone heard of them?

Your assumption is correct that is the dealer that sold the car new. The dealer is still there, but under a new name. Here's their info and web site:

Midland Ford Lincoln - Mercury Inc
1303 South Saginaw Road
Midland, MI 48640
Phone: (989) 631-0040
Fax: (989) 631-1773

Wonder if they keep records of who they sold cars to?

Wouldn't hurt to ask. I've been lucky a couple of times in this respect. One dealer even sent me the "original" copies of the paperwork they had on file.
