Default Title ?

Hey Guys

So this shoulda been the first thing.... but sometimes I'm a little assbackwards

I bought my truck with out a bill of sale or title.

So do I buy one from these guys that sell titles?

Thanks

In CT you can apply for a new one for $20. After 25 years you don't even need one to register. Jim

All DMVs in every state and province are different --- and the same. They all have different rules and hoops you have to jump through, but they all make you appreciate how nice enemas are.

It will likely be considered a reconstruction. It will look like a 40 Dodge PU. All possible receipts help. Expect to get a different story from each DMV person you interact with. Stay polite and appreciative of their help. They do not expect the be treated nicely by the public. Read the rod-building rules for your state, and know them better than the person on the other side of the counter. Have a copy with you, and highlight any arguments you expect to face. The rules should be posted on the DMV website. If you have a vin on the cab, have the DMV, or a cop if you know one, run it for you. It will likely not show up at all. If it does, "repair the rust" in the firewall, so it no longer exists. (Oops, I didn't just suggest that you do anything illegal.)

I am facing the same issue. Lesson learned, I hope. Best of luck.

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.

If there is a New Jersey Street Rod Assn. get ahold of them and find out what works. A local club would be a good resource too.
