Gordon Butler Chevrolet Lowell, MA (murder & mayhem)
« on: September 14, 2015, 04:44:40 PM »
I figured that title would get a few readers attention... My SS was originally sold by Gordon Butler Chevrolet in Lowell, MA. They lost their franchise under less than stellar conditions. To make a long story short, one of the reasons is that a GM rep was murdered during a large scale warranty fraud investigation.
My question is, does anyone know of any way of getting any info on my 69 after this happened? I know it's a long shot, but I'm just trying to trace the car back from pre-1983. Maybe try to figure out who the original buyer was. A know the girl's name that bought it from "R&R Auto" in Rowley, MA in the late 70s or early 80s. R&R is gone from what I can see too. I don't know anything else before that.

Hi I'm trying to track down the dealer number and zone number for this dealership back in the day.  Do you know it.  Trying to track down my Dad's old 1970 Chevelle LS6 that was sold there.

Thanks,
Mike

I posted about that when I found out that Butler was my 69s original dealer a few years ago. Pretty crazy. I'm not surprised though. There are large mob ties all around the area. Think Whitey Bulger etc. His crew was only 20 min east. I read a few things that said there was suspicions of mob involvement. With the kind of money they were talking I'm sure there was. I grew up not far from there.

Here's a few more about them. I have a bunch more including the court documents in the trial against Edgerly. It's 19 pages long though...
