32 Roadster Vin Verification

WE PURCHASED A FRAME, BODY & ENGINE IN 2003 FROM A REALTOR IN DENVER, CO. THE FRAME & BODY WAS MANUF. BY KILBOURNE ROD SHOP AND THE ENGINE CAME OUT OF A 96 CAMARO. WE ARE GETTING CLOSE TO FINISHING THE PROJECT AND PURCHASED A TITLE FROM A CO. IN THE BACK OF THE GOOD GUYS MAGAZINE CALLED "VINTAGE TITLES." HOW DO WE KNOW IF THIS A GOOD VIN # ON THE TITLE? AND WE DO NOT WANT TO PUT THIS ON THE CAR IF THE TITLE WORK WILL NOT WORK, THEN WE ARE STUCK WITH THAT ALREADY ON THE CAR. HOW DO ALL THE OTHER RODDERS DO THIS?

It is VERY impolite to use ALL caps when posting. It is considered shouting on the web.


I see this is your first post here so I am going to cut you some slack and answer the question anyway. MOST will not.......


V8 1932 Fords have a 18- prefix. Does your title ?


PM me the number and I will look it up

I hate to say this but in most states what you're doing is illegal. You should have a manufacturers statement of origin that was provided by the manufacture for the body. This should be submitted to your Department of Motor Vehicles along with receipts for all major components of the vehicle. The DMV will in most cases do a safety inspection on the car and issue you a vin number and a manufactured vehicle title. That is the legal way to do it.

Purchasing a title that doesn't belong to your vehicle and then trying to pass it off as your vehicle's title can land you in jail. It's called fraud.

True.......very, very true.........


I would use the statement of origin from Kilborne. Less hassles. And not illegal.

There is not 1 original 32 piece on the project. It is fraud. It will never pass as a original 32 to any knowledgeable old Ford fan.

I PMed you back....the number is for a 4 cylinder 1932 Ford.........and the number sequence is in line with what Ford did in 32....so it should pass.

I purchased a title from Vintage titles for my 34. True, it will never pass off as an original 34, and I would never try to do that. In Texas when you build a glass car and use the manufactures certificate you have to title the car as the year it was built. That means at some point you will be liable for emissions testing in the future, and also yearly inspections. Texas is dragging their feet in implementing a street rod titling provision like some other states have already implemented. You should chek with the Colorado DOT to see if they have a street rod title provision. This classification allows up to like 2000 miles a year, and the car cannot be driven for everyday transportation.

Most states back then did not issue titles for cars, and if you purchase a title from Vintage titles, it will not be a title, but a dated bill of sale, and the last license registration receipt which will have the frame number on it. What Vintage titles has done is obtain a slew of old license receipts for cars that are long gone. The license receipt that I got showed it registered last in 1955 in a small town in upstate New York. I researched the town after I got the paper work and found out that back then it was haven for dirt track racers, as it still is now. You can imagine the fate of the car that I have the ID number on.

I will be stamping the ID number on the frame and body. I then need to get an inspection by a state certified inspector (local gas station). All it does is confirm that the ID on the frame and body match. I take that certificate, my license registration, and bill of sale to the DOT which will issue a title as a 34 Coupe. This means I do not have to get yearly inspection and I can put antique license plates on it. Anyone with a glimmer of intelligence can tell right off the car is not an original 34.

Who is to say that you did not buy an original piece of junk and proceed to replace virtually every piece on it, including the frame?
