I am trying to find the name of the original selling dealer of a Cadillac Allante I am in the process or purchasing. It was sold new in New Jersey and the dealer code is 23145. Can anyone help with this or do you know of a list of dealers by code numbers? Thank you for reading this.

Is this the 1993 that is currently on eBay? I know which dealer sold that car. Email me at srsinger@sbcglobal.net since I don't check these pages regularly. Steve

This car is a 1991.

Won't a CarFax report give the original dealer name?

No, it doesn't. It begins with the original owner's location.

Maybe it varies by State, or records don't go back far enough. I've never used one, but the sample here shows the dealer:

Good luck.

Yeah I've seen CarFaxes like yours too. But that vehicle is much newer than this one. I assume some records were a little vague back then or incomplete. Actually, my CarFax picks up where the original owner sold the car one year after he bought it.
