About VIN

Some where on that vehicle is a VIN go on line to find out all places it may be. Afterwards if you have a bonifide bill of sale, you can get a license for the vehicle by going to www.its-titles.com

Since you're in California go down to your local DMV and talk to them. Each state has their own procedures on titling vehicles where the title and/or vin numbers are missing.

Using a title company as has been suggested is skirting the law and many states, and I wouldn't be surprised that California is one of them, will not recognize a title obtained in such a manor.

Talk to your DMV, follow their instructions and you'll be fine. It may take a little more time and paperwork but at least it will be totally legal and above board. By using a title company you could easily be throwing your $$$ away when the state says they won't accept it. If you have any questions ask the DMV if they will accept a title obtained through a title company and see how quickly they say NO!

I did this in Calif., (after talking with the DMV first). I bought the car WITH a bill of sale! ...Has the sellers name (both printed and written, date, cost, and VIN number. Then you go to the DMV, they look up last know owner, they give you his mailing address and you send him a paper to sign off on. You'll need to do this by return receipt requested. Either the old owner signs off on it, OR you get a notice of deliver with no action and after 5 days(I think thats the period) you go into the DMV and they give you a new title! I did this for a 67 nova I saw in somebodies backyard. Suspposely his brother-n-law sold it to him and he never bothered getting the title in his name ...5 yr.s ago! *L* Good Luck!

The main thing to remember when dealing with the DMV is that in most cases calling them will do no good. You have to speak to them face to face. At least then you should get someone who will at least be able to look the procedures up for you. On the phone it's way too easy to just blow you off, if you get my drift.
