I've been PMed 3 times about this one and finally asked about the title situation. Without a good answer to that, my opinion is leave it alone. I've declined every time but it is interesting and not that far away.

That's too bad, it looks to be in too good of shape to be just a parts car.

Why does it have to be a parts car? Cant you apply for a lost title? I guess it depends state by state.

I am really interested in it, but at 700mi its just a little too far for a weekend trip.

Here in Colorado a car with no title is worth next to nothing. The cost to get one usually is more than the car is worth. To get a replacement title is up to who had one last and if it's still on the books in that state, 5 years they usually purge the records.

I used a title service in New Hampshire to title a motorcycle which lost its title by the previous owner. All I had to do was pencil trace the VIN # and I got a bill of sale. Pennsylvania had no problem accepting the Bill of Sale and I now have a title.

Good move in haveing the VIN run so you don't end up with a stolen piece of equipment.

I can give you the info if you want, just PM me
Taken from the search feature. Let me know if you need this info.

Also before you commit to a title service, be sure your state will honor it. I checked with 2 and they both said not in Colorado when I was looking at a car with no title.

Looks good Tom, are you going back with the Rallye scheme paint?
Keith
Oh yes. Regal Gold color with stock paint scheme. I take my suspension to the shop today to put on and will tell the painter about his mistake on the cowl. But I am using semil gloss instead of flat on the hood. Plus I OK'd him to use vinyl stipes instead of painting as long as he used a top quality vinyl.
