Default Title question (owner died 5+ years ago)

Long story short, I found a 52 chevy truck I want to buy, title is in the grandfathers name witch passed away some time ago. I am being told that the title is in the "familys" name now (not my words) and the grandmother would sign it, then they will file for a NVR4 (lost title) b/c grandaughter want to keep the "green" title b/c of sentimental value, then I take the NVR4to DMV and the title will come back in my name. Question is, is any of this true, will it cost me any extra $$? Can someone explain exacly how this should work out? Thanx.

You need to get the original title. It's a legal document not a sentimental keepsake!

But if the title was actually lost the family could get a replacement.


Id have the family get a new title, then it wont matter if they give you the old one or the new one.

Yep. Sounds like they're giving you the runaround. The title belongs to the vehicle, not the family. If it has that much sentimental value then she should be keeping the truck!

In Pa. if its the original or replacement title and it in the deceased name you will also need the death certificate to get the title in your name. Going through that with the 36 Ford pickup I just bought.

Default Title

In some cases who ever the executor of will was would have power of attorney, and would be able to get a duplicate of a "lost title" and be able to sign it over to you. If this helps.

That was my first thought. Push them on it and see if their story changes. I went through that kind of BS with my grandfather in laws truck, a well kept 65 F100 - one of the sons had it. Couldn't find the title, then couldn't get it out of his back yard because of blah blah blah. I realized it was a lost cause. About 5 yrs later, after he left it outside and let it rot and get trashed, he asked if I wanted it. I passed, already found another. Still rotting last I heard.

Well? Let us know the details. Are you going to try and re-title?
