Different states seem to be a hit or miss as far as getting a new tittle.. WI seems to be a fairly easy process.. I bought my truck from a guy in WI.. he got a new title for it before I bought it, its been transfered to my name... I am glad I bought a truck that had a tittle with it.. I hear IL is terribly difficult to a title...

But definitely a great score for 500..!

Nice car. Good job sharing your experience here, this may help some overcome the fear of the "horrors" of titling an antique automobile properly.

Thanks for sharing and best of luck with your project!

Regards,
Shea

Might I just add to this thread a small bit of advise. For Wisconsin Titles as you have explained, you will need everything you stated...AND your vehicle needs to be in OPERATING CONDITION at the time you apply for your title bond. I am working on a 1951 Ford F1, and I can not apply for a title until I have it running/driving. Just a heads up for any of our friends in Wisconsin.

I did not have to have the vehicle in operating condition and the folks at the bonding company didn't seem to care whether the car was running or not.

Good for you, doing it the right way. That car was a steal at $500.

It always amazes me how people suggest registering a car illegally. I stopped a guy for speeding and I always look at the vin numbers. They looked "hinky" so I arrested him and had the car impounded. Auto Theft came out and found the hidden vin, the car was stolen. He had done a vin switch with a salvaged car.

i am not willing to commit a class two or class three felony over a car.
i like voting, owning guns the ability to get a visa
little things like that.....

So you need to put all your time and effort and moneyinto building your car/truck before you know if you can even get a Title. Thats sounds so wrong! Thats not good advise (not saying you are wrong) but I would have to see if I could get a title before I started.
