Post Getting a title....

After getting my 49 chevy p/u core from a junkyard, he promised me a title, but now (a couple months later), he still can't find it. Supposedly the previous owner has the previous title as a salvage title or something, but nobody can find him. Now my question is, what should I do? I'm going to have a police friend of mine check the VIN and find out what shape the title is in and where it is. I could just get an S10 chassis and use the title from that, but if possible, I'd rather just stick with the original frame.
I feel like one of those kit car people who get completely done and find out how much trouble getting a title is.
Thanks for any help.

Check the back of some Hot Rod or Street Rodder mags. I got a clean title from a guy in Jersey for $150. I can look his name and number up if youn need it.

I know in Kansas, The state will not take a old title from certain states. Unless the numbers match. They will come out to your house and check it for you.
But in some states. as long as you bought the car in the same state you live in. A bill of sale will do. In Kansas if you buy a car in that state and live in that state. that's all you need is a bill of sale. with the Vin number on it.
You could have them do a tiile search. Then apply for a lost title.

You could go through your state's DMV on-line and see there guide lines.

Try to do all the paper work before you start working on the car. Frame work, changing motor, etc. If you do it the other way you asking for head aches.

Try Broadway Title Co 1-800-464-3222 Takes 6-10 days or e-mail at NLAIII@aol.com I think it will run you about a buck and a half!

Broadway title won't touch anything in Iowa. And I'm pretty sure the only option I have of getting a 49 p/u title (besides finding the last owner), is a bonded title; which requires me to put one and a half the value of my truck in a bond for three years. Of course, I can always take all the parts off and tell the DMV that the value is 50 dollars (right now it'd be hard for them to argue).
What I was wondering about was alternative ways of getting a title (although I'm not terribly fond of the government, I'd prefer to stick to legal right now).
