Weird way for the state to run things, and in this case it put you in a predicament. Still not sure how they are issuing a registration without proof of ownership? Ohio requires a VIN inspection for vehicles brought in from out of state as well, but that paperwork must be completed before anything further is issued.

Regardless, it seems the easier way would have been to have the inspection done before you started, when the original cab and frame were both present. Then you have a clean title in hand. All current problems avoided...
I'm the dirty dozen for the price of one...

I agree that would have been easier, but I talked to them when I first got the vehicle and they said they could not issue a clean title to a vehicle that was deemed unrepairable (my frame was in in 2 pieces) and spouted off some state statute. I took their word. Well during the build I have found out differently thru alot of research. So I know now for next time.

Tried to get a vin and title for my model a but they wanted it more complete before they would do it.
I am only using the cab from the model a. Everything else is built from scratch, new, or from a different vehicle.
The cab never had a vin number. The nonexistent engine had the serial number.

Or move to a state where you don't have to have a title!
