Tracing my farther's old car - where do I start?

I would like to find out if there is a possibility of knowing where my father’s, once-owned, Morris Oxford Series VI Farina 1971 whereabouts might be nowadays, if not destroyed at the junk yard by now. When he bought the car in 1971, we were living in Chester, but in 1975 we moved for good to Spain where we currently live, in La Coruña. A few months after settling, the clutch broke and he was told that it was not worth repairing the clutch since a new car in Spain -at that time- would be a better option. So he got rid of it. Any idea how I could find it again?
