My son and I traveled from Florida to Kansas to buy a 1950 Studebaker. My son wanted to refurbish one since my father had a 1950 when I was young. The seller said he had a title but when we got there he didn't. He said we would have no problem in Florida getting one. Ha!....Quit laughing! I had no clue about an old car and my son is too trusting. He gave me a sales slip with the firewall and door jam number on it, which at the DMV they wouldn't look at. I gave him a cashiers check which I found out he wanted cash.....I wonder why! The car did have an inspection sticker on it dated 1988 from the state of Missouri. I hope someone can guide us. Thanks, Magbaker

I know people who have used Broadway Title and have had good results. Some states will not accept the type of paperwork Broadway furnishes. You need to go to their web site and ask. But from the last post Fla seems to be OK with it. Good luck.

I did the same thing when I bought my truck. I ended up going to my insurance agent and purchased a "title bond". The state troopers came out and inspected the trucks identification numbers and ran the vins to see if it was stolen. Went to the DMV with my title bond and police report and was able to licenses the truck. It was a bit of a pain but it beat hauling the truck back across three states to get a title which I would then have to have transferred to my state. Hope this helps. Neal

Each state is different......AZ is a big pain as I'm sure others
will atest to. They (MVD) wouldn't look at me,unless I had
"the" title, or 2 back to back bill of sales, which I finally
did, or pay for a "title bond" and wait 6 months for the state
of GA, where the 64 Daytona came from, and AZ to work things
out. Course AZ does have a high car theft issue and #1 in the
US for ID Theft, which may lead to the MVD being picky!

Personally I've always been VERY leery of "weak" or nonexistent titles. Also numbers that don't quite match. But you can also get burned (badly) by FUNNY signatures on titles. Good luck. Also, I can't see how what Broadway Title does can be legal. But..........this is a funny world and funny things happen.......mainly because of "funny" people. Anyway, good luck.

In Florida you only need a notarized bill of sale, if from the proper state. Florida, Georgia and Alabama as well as others will work.
