I talked to one of my brothers at the State Police. Follow these steps,
Go back to the salvage yard and get the VIN #. And get the price of what they will sell you the car for pending you go to the court house and get proper paper work.
Go to your court house and get a application to register & title a car. Make sure you explain to the clerk of courts what you are doing and it is a rare car about to be destroyed. They do understand.
Take the application and the VIN# to the Sheriff's dept. to have the VIN# ran to verify not stolen. They will sign the app. & possibly since the car cannot be moved send a deputy to see the car in person. If the vehicle is clean you can return to the clerk of courts office and pay the taxes and title fee. They will give you a reciept for applied title .
You will have to work out with the salvage yard owner the process. Clean record car, pay him, bring back court records, take it home.
Don't forget to mention historic value; that's how to get to the non-old car folks.

His father died and had brand new Hemis in crates from the 70s
and muscle car sheet metal .
People he knew said sell it so he offered it for salewith prices.
People came and tried to get a lower price ,he said sales over and loaded everything into dumptrucks right to the land fill.
He cares nothing about muscle cars and said i dont need the
headaches of people bugging me about that junk.
True story it was and still is Quigianio Motors inmorris county in
N.J. owners name is Mike.I know him and he has no Patience
There's an early 'cuda with a hurst shifter (probably a performance model) sitting behind Wayland Crysler here in Michigan. Damn them. I don't care about the minivans rotting alongside it; those things are weak, useless FWD breadboxes. But save the 'cuda, and the nova, and the '74 LeMans in a junkyard near me!
