Why not just go with Broadway Title? About $150 I hear.

Check to see if your state will accept a Broadway title.
Not all do.

If the car still has the serial number plate, call the DMV and find out how to go about it. BUT, you should have done this when you bought the vehicle. The state id likely to hit you up for a large sales tax or title transfer. If the car is almost done, you'll have a hard time convincing them that it's a $500 car.Of course you could also find out that the car was stolen 35 years ago and have it taken from you.

1) Why are you spending money on a car that doesn't belong to you?

2) Is the serial number plate still on the car?

3) Have you called the DMV?

4) What happens if you find out the car was stolen 35 years ago?

About a year ago there was a '65 Mustang recovered as well. And a '57 T-Bird 3 or 4 years ago. Both had been gone a looonnnnnggggg time.

You hear about broadway title for $150.00 but costs are $400.00 to $500.00.

There are guys who will do it for you in, I think, Arkasas or Alabama. One of those states didn't have a title law prior to a certain year and will specify the car belonged to him during that time. Sounds kinda shady but they advertise it, so it must work. Of course, [u]I'D </u> never do it! [:o)]

John, that is what Broadway does. The cost is a little deceiving. Yes Broadway only charges $150.00 but then when you bring it into your state(Texas in my case) by the time you get it transferred you are at around $400.00. But it is a legal transaction.

Some states (Kalifornia come to mind) will not accept a Broadway title. Of course I don't know why you wouldn't do it the legal way.

Maybe a title such as Sir Stuebaker, or Captain Studebaker or Her Majesty might be good.

In Michigan and several other states you can apply for a lost title, an assembled title, and/or if you are a business, you can achieve a mechanics lean.

The mechanics lean is the best option in my opinion, provided you have the resources to make it happen.

Throw the plate away. You'll always be wondering if there's somebody out there with the original title to YOUR car. Because even if you get a broadway title, or whatever, the original title holder can put a claim on your car. Too bad--I have a 57 silver hawk shell with title plus cali black plates matched to the title, even.

I remember as a kid my older brothers and I would find bicycles thrown away in the alleys of our town. That was our source for parts (we were poor). I clearly remember the cops showing up one day and taking one of my brother’s bikes away because it belonged to another kid. My brother had spent money and time rebuilding the bike (it was just a frame when he found it) and didn’t receive a dime for his efforts. The original owner had striped it and thrown it away! and now had a “new” bicycle. It was a bitter lesson for us all as a family.
When I started my Studebaker project I called the state troopers, they came out and inspected the vehicle and ran the VIN. They gave me an official form stating it wasn’t stolen which I took to my local insurance agent and purchased a title bond. From my understanding a title bond guarantees the vehicle is not stolen for three years and will pay off anyone who may come forward. After three years anyone who comes to try and claim the vehicle is SOL. At the DMV I gave them my title bond and police report and of course some money and walked out with a brand new title. I was also able to license it with a 1948 New Mexico truck plate!
