Question about title for '32 kit...

I'm posing this question for a friend who is building a '32 from a kit. How does one go about getting a 1932 title, or is that even a possibility? The car is being built in Florida, if that matters at all.

Thanks in advance!!

It differs form one state to another...

Have your friend contace the local BMV and ask them what he need's to do to title a kit car. Or contact the kit builder and ask them how to go about titling the kit car in his state...they should know!!

To begin with your friend will need a certificate of origin for the body/kit. That will come from the manufacturer. With that he will also need all the receipts for the major parts for the car (engine, trans, rear end etc) just for a start.

Have your friend check this site for the forms and requirements for the state of Florida. In most states titling a kit car is not the easiest thing to do but if you follow the procedures it can be done. One note of caution here. Do NOT try to title a kit car as an original using one of the commercially available original titles that can be purchased on the net and other places. This will not work and will get your friend in a lot of trouble. It is, if I'm not mistaken a felony in most states to attempt to register a vehicle using a fraudulent title. In Florida the year of the car will be the year in which it was assembled so if your friend has a 34 Ford kit car that was built in 2004 it will be titled as a 2004 kit car and there is no getting around that.

Good luck.

Many thanks for the info! I had never heard of buying a title over the 'net until he asked me to help him find some answers. Didn't pass the sniff test.

I'll pass that link to him, Centerline. Again, many thanks.

BTW, I did pass this site on to him, but he's so computer illiterate, he makes me look like a genius Anyway, I put it in his favorites and now have to teach him to navigate the board. Once he learns how to do it, he'll wish he learned sooner!!
