Tough one and seems little info to be found less than 50 years later.
My Newspapers.com access still isn't working but fcs66 or other members can give it a go for you there.
Maybe you've seen them already but here's one of the '72 ads from Newspaper Archives w/ phone # that may help searching...'70 Duster ad and # looks like 239-0171?
Good luck also is it a Cuda?

Pete, I have all the regs since new so there may be another plate on one of them . But here here is the one that physically came with the car.

I checked the Newspapers.com site from my work system and see a few Mission ads but nothing Cuda or Hemi also most ads '72 or later.
I was wondering on the build/sale dates to search ads of the time frame also running CA Plate #'s can sometimes be surprising too, so LMK anything more and we'll give it a whirl.

Three hits for the 519-JPF Plate # and same ad w/ car being advertised in the LA Times in Aug '73.
Here's one ad below, the $ 2695 sounds good...did you pay more than that Chuck?:wink:
Great to hear you have lots of paper so doesn't sound like you need to backtrack owners but if you did, next would be search ad Phone # etc.
:beers:
