This would depend on several factors.
The first would be what paperwork you have for the body and/or frame. If you have valid paperwork for the body, then title the vehicle as it.
If you have no paperwork, check with your state regulations. Several states now enable you to title a vehicle based on the year and model it looks like. This is without concern for the engine and drivetrain.
You will need (in most cases) a minimum of notorized bill of sales for the body, engine, frame and drivetrain if
you do not have an existing registration or title. Serial numbers or VIN numbers will in some cases have to be verified by a LEO or Department Of Motor Vehicle. In some states the tag office will accept a "rubbing" of the serial / VIN numbers.
