Title for old car

Has anyone titled a car that had a missing title in Ohio? Before I buy a car I want to make sure I can register it. It's a 1953 Olds that the title was lost.

It has been discussed many times, there is a Wiki article on it that was composed from this site.

Title for the old car

Well, I spent too many hours looking over websites, and will need to find a state and a friend in that state that does not require a Pope's permission slip to get a car registered and titles. I understand that there are a few states left that don't give you the third degree when trying to do the right thing. I can understand the need on newer vehicles, but the old stuff that has a 7-digit ID number won't even come up on the registry. Everybody wants 11 or the newer 17 digit code.

You could probably use get new title, which is a service from maine. Maine does a quick 10 year check to verify vehicle has not been on the road, verifys the vin number and makes sure the vehicle is legit, then prosesses a registration for the vehicle and in maine, away you go. pretty much same as NY. problem is, both states put a 60 day re sale hold on transfer in case the vehicle comes up 'hot' and thus being out of state, you need the pay service which uses power of attorney to put everything in your name... Get new title as far as I know is 100% legit, and if you can verify your vehicle is not stolen, than I would have no issue with the service.. paperwork on 50+ year old vehicles you can't always expect to be in order.. I had to get the vin verified for my '67 Falcon I had, and the previous owner of my '51 Chevy did the same with it, but NY is easy to get it done living here

Titles, anyone?

It is hard to understand how difficult i is to do in most states. Possession is 9/10ths of the law anywhere, and if you are willing to sign an affadafit to that effect, that should be all that is necessary. When these states purge the older files, there is nothing to go on. I have the old plates off the car, but California cannot run plates from 1970, just too old. Even with a verified serial number like my old car with 7 digits, it is just not enough here in Kentucky.

If you have a friend in Michigan, they will give you a title for about $15 after a check to see if it is stolen or has liens on it. Its easy here in Mi.

Getting a title for an old car

Thanks. I think that is the case in Indiana too, and am going to try that first as I have two sons living up there, and one of them got a title for a vehicle he bought with just a bill of sale. They ran a check on the car to see if it was stolen or had a lien, and that was that. Gotta try that. Thanks. Ron
