  • Nice Looking Cruiser on Ebay

    Just saw a lovely Cruiser on ebay. I'm in the midst of the Betty revival else I'd be chasing that car. Who ever gets it will get a sweet little car.

    That looks like a nice car for someone to start with, especially if they don't have to go for much in shipping/delivery.

    Is a "non-op" title in California like a salvage title, in that it will be difficult/impossible to get registered some places? Does it mean that you have to pay California back fees to bring it up to date? I have never resided in California, only visited there a few times, so I am not that familiar with their MV laws.

    My Father-in-Law bought a 1963 Cruiser new in the same white over blue combination.

        No Gary, that is where California is way more understanding of older car owners and collectors than Eastern states. One of the main purposes of the Non-Operational status of a Calif. registration is to avoid the fees! The title remains untouched by this action of reporting it "non-operational" is is part of the Registration process only. There is a flat fee for all Vehicles, currently $16.00, was $10.00 and originally when the program started, only $5.00. All you do is pay the current fee, and continue on like nothing happened when you get the car "running" the registration form comes to you every year with the option of doing nothing and leaving it Non-Operational, or paying the noted current fees to re-instate it. Of course you can be sited for no registration if it is ever found on a Street or Highway, it is to be on private property only.
        This way the title stays forever in the computer system and never "drops out". If you do NOT do this, and just let a car sit and the Lic. expire it WILL "drop out", then it is no longer considered by the DMV, Police or Courts as a "Motor Vehicle" and as such, can NOT be reported stolen, you might as well have set it on fire, if it is stolen, it is GONE forever, you would have a very hard time retrieving it even if you find it!

        It is a very good system, also the whole registration process. After all, they have to keep track of more license plate numbers than anywhere in the entire WORLD! There are still active Yellow on Black plates originally registered to cars up to 1969, when the Yellow on Blue came out and those are also still in service as 6 digit and 7 digit as well as the current Dark Blue on White in many series, plus Personalized, year of Manufacture, Historical Vehicle and Horseless Carriage plates.
        Not to mention that there are also more cars than any State, the last I heard. [:0]

                He states that DAS can transport it from California to the east coast for $500-600. Somebody should take him up on that [:0]. My guess is that it would be about 3-4 times that.

                It does look like a nice car, however.

                        I can deliver the car to the DAS shipping terminal here in Fresno, they can ship a car to the midwest or eastern states for very reasonable prices (about $500-$650). http://www.dasautoshippers.com/
                        Maybe they can I know of someone that shipped from here to Michigan for under $600.
