I have some original paper work that may be of interest.

If the paperwork is from before WW2, then it's likely less than 1% chance that this specific car is still around.. Closed cars before 1926 had lots of wood that rots if it sits outside and they've been less desirable to save than tourings and roadsters in recent decades. But it's not impossible..

I know the car was around in the fifties, but I thought
I would at least try. It would be great to have this info for my 1924, history is a wonderful thing.

If the car was in good condition well into the 50's, then there's a much better chance it's still here - the attitude change from "old jalopy bound for the junk yard" into "cool old car that should be restored" came during that decade.

That engine number would be a late model 1922. (May 26, 1922) I wonder if the dealer sold it as a '23 to clear stock?

The paperwork states it was purchased in November 1922 as a 1923 model

It would help if we knew where it was purchased? Attach the bill of sale for all of us to see.

It was purchased in Atascadero CA, but the last known whereabouts was Fremont, CA

You may be able to go to your motor vehicles department with the serial number and do a search if they have records that still exist.
