You have done a lot of research, and looks like you have done well.

Send a letter or email to every dealership still in existence or even knock on their door. Maybe someone still working there or a friend or relative of someone working there may remember the car.
A friend of mine contacted the dealership after he found a dealer sticker on the rear window of his HT Wagon. The HT concerned was a rare combination and the dealership remembered his car as 2 cars were ordered by the same buyer with same options selected, matching colour and interior, engine, trans, diff, air, PS etc. The CFO of the dealership was the salesman who took the order! Small world.
You never know if you don't ask.
Good Luck.
Great story so far and when the tag issues are finally solved it will be an even greater story for future reference.

Did your research uncover who was the selling dealer? I know of dealers who have details of every car they ever sold still today. Might be a good place to uncover more info.

No joy with the dealerships. Two kept records for the 7 year requirement and two had older records with nothing belonging to the car.

There are some avenues of research still yet to be pursued and we'll see how they develop in due course.
