    In CA you can apply to the DMV for a replacement for a lost title. Just takes sending in the correct form.

    depends on laws there,

    here in IL if you get signature of the last titled owner then they will issue a replacement title and can transfer it to new owner at same tiem but its extra 40 ro 60 bucks to do it
    i have ot do this on the 71 dually, as the title was in the glovebox and a mouse chewed it all up so i didnt get one, but i have located the last title owner i had to go back about three owners to find him

    ill stop at his house one of these days soon and get signature and get the title work done finally

    power of attorney paper and also a lost/replacement title form
    just call your local DMV office and tell them you are looking at a vehicle to buy that the owner lost the title and how what you need to do to get one reissued/replaced/issued/transfered whatever they call it there

    but dont say you bought it without a title, that would be a no no

    unless bill of sales are legal documents there, unlike in IL

    here we dont notarize titles and we dont make/use bill of sales

    its title or nothing

    Here in VT if its 10 years old you don't need a title, and the DMV won't issue one. My 86 has a title, in the previous owners name, they signed it over to me on the back. When I went to register the K5, the DMV handed me back the title, said "this is not necessary" i said- can I get one in my name, answer- nope, they will not issue em.

    Wonder what would happen if I sold it to someone in another state that requires titles?

    its complicated...

    If I buy an "out of state" truck,like say,from Rhode Island,where they dont requre a tiitle after 10 years,and I get no title,I have to fill out a "RMV 1 " form for "Application for title for a non titled motor vehicle" here in MA..then hand over $50 and they will send me a title in my name in the mail in a few weeks....I dont know if they ever search for any previous history to see if its stolen or has leins on it...probably not...

    In Mass,ANY truck,regardless of the year,requires a title!..not sure on cars,it used to be 10 years old or older did not need a title,but I think that was changed as well..anything to charge you more,and get less.. :mad:

    Legally,your not even allowed to JUNK a car or truck with no title here!--but few yards ask for them..the guy at the shack where I junked my K20 told me I could keep it if I wanted too!..but I gave it to him anyway!--the numbers were still rivited to the cab,and it was 6" high... :doah: :( I have another title and numbers from another cab I junked due to rust,but I doubt I'll ever use them....I dont think I'll be getting any more trucks anytime soon--no money === no trucks.. :(
