  • 58 Scotsman

    A member of our SDC here in Washington has purchased a 58 Scotsman from out of state and plans to drive it home. In order to get a licence to bring it back with he needs a weight for the car. Does anyone have the weight for a Scotsman or know of a place that we can get it? He needs the information ASAP so he can have it registered prior to going after it next week.

    According to the brochure (sheet) the 2dr. Scotsman weighs 2680
    and the station wagon weighs 2875. I don't have the 4dr. sheet.

      When I had to renew my plates on 'Sweet Pea' (she's registered in Washington) they wanted paperwork from a certified scale. Nothing else I found would work for them!!!!
      Here are the numbers from a chart that was in Collectible Automobile, October '92:
      • Scotsman 2dr sedan- 2740
      • Scotsman 4dr sedan- 2695
      • Scotsman 2dr wagon- 2870

      Good luck!!!

        Thanks for the quick reply. We will check with the powers that be and see if this will do. If anyone can add to it I would appreciate it. There is power in numbers.

            The requirements vary widely from state to sate; ask their DMV.

            I've sold several cars out-of-state. Here, the customer faxes proof of liability insurance on the purchased vehicle to the local DMV. The DMV issues a temporary In-Transit Permit. It's a paper tag that's good for 30 days; gets you home, then you license it in your home state as usual.

            I'd look into an in-transit permit.

                Sometimes the County Courthouse DOL people know more and are helpful, other times your local Wash. DOL certified License store is WAY better even with a small fee! I did 2 at the local "store" in the last 8 mos. one asked me the weight, I guessed, the other entered N/A, I think the older ones do not even matter and may be exempt like the smog BS and Insurance is in Whatcom County!

                  Thank you all for your information. I will print this and give it to him. Hope they will go with this at least until he gets it home and can get a certified weight slip is that is what will be needed.

                    Gordon, I tried to send you an email about this subject. I have no idea if the forum email is working or not?
