Arrow Looking for my 69 Chevelle

I purchased a 1969 Black 396 Chevelle with aluminum heads new at Norwood Chevrolet in RI.
It was deliver to Norwood where Mel Perry removed the 396 block and installed a 427 with a Chevrolet experimental cam. He put a holly 3 barrel on it tuned headers, ladder bars and 488 gears. It was black, bench seat and scary fast.
I traded it to Scuncio Chevrolet in 1970 for a fairly normal low compression 454.
I believe the car may have gone to Ron's Speed Shop in RI but I may be wrong.
I have the Vin and delivery date.
It had probably been canalibised but I'm not sure.
Can anyone help me find this car. This was a Norwood Yenko type which Mel made only one other for a buyer in Worcester Ma.

Wow, you must still dream about this car!
Was it a 2-Dr. Hardtop or Post Sedan?
To confirm, was the 427 added before or after you took delivery new?
Also, was it an M22 car and do you know the rear ratio?
Besides Vin, do you still have any original paperwork?
Love to hear more also anything you can tell us of the other car too.
Best of luck tracking it down!

Howard, here is a thread I started about the Norwood dealership and my car. I managed to locate several previous owners, but I couldn't track you down.
