I have a chance to get a van that hasn't been licensed in 35 years. A gentleman got the van in 1998 in an auction and has the paperwork from that event, with it signed document from the family. He never transferred the title over and the family is deceased. Oh and the current owner is two states away but bought the van in California. (yeah sounds messy)

I live in Washington state and I went to talk with the DOL but hey, times are crazy and the temperament reflects the times.

Anyway, anyone have any dealings like this. I don't want to spend $ and then have it not be "mine".

Thanks.

No title at all?

While this is a legal loophole, it’s legal and works. My buddy did this and many do for non titled motorcycles. This article is geared towards motos but still applies to cars!

OPTION 2 - Be careful with the Vermont title thing. A buddy tried that and it did not hold up when he went to get an Illinois title. But it might work in your state..........

OPTION 1 - Sounds to me like the guy who bought the van (and has paperwork) 30 something years ago should just do the paperwork to title it in HIS name in his state. Then when he gets the title, he can sell it to you. If he can't get a title, what makes you think you can by skipping over him? (Sorry to be so blunt)

OPTION 3 - Other option is to buy it without the title but price should reflect no title situation. Get notarized Bill of Sale from "seller" along with all of his old paperwork (originals, not copies). Then you apply for a bonded title through your state. You have to put up some money for a bond and in 3 years (Illinois) if no one reports the van stolen or has cause to make a claim, you will get a legitimate state issued title in your name. Kinda risky and I sure would not spend any money on the thing until I had a good title in my name. I am about a year and a half into this process for a 75 year old truck and have my fingers crossed.

OPTION 4 - Find a van with a good title.

In any case, check with the DMV in YOUR state. In some states, there are no titles for vehicles over a certain age.

Good luck.

If you know anybody in Alabama, they don't title 35 year old vehicles. Can't get a title for one that old in Alabama if you want one.

@1959 yes that’s true. Portland, or atleast out by us deep SE, the dmv is very relaxed with that kind of thing and I know many a friends who had success but “your mileage may vary” as they say.
