Post subject: Registering a no title car after 40 years

I was wondering if anybody would have any insight to this. Looking at picking up a vehicle that is a 1969 and hasn't been registered in about 40 years. The kicker is that it doesn't have a title and is in California. I have had some people say when registering it, that I should tell the DMV I found it in a backyard here in az. Let me know what you guys think. It currently doesn't run.

It had better be a 3.0csl for the amount of drama you're about to go through. Yes you can say you found it in a backyard but that means filing for abandoned title which means a lot of red tape and waiting. Or you can find a small tow company that doesn't have corporate policies or strict moral standards and make a deal with them. Have them tow it to their yard, and file for abandoned title. They do this all the time and have the process down to a science. When they get the title you slip them a couple benjamins and sign it over to you. Boom, cars yours no fuss no muss.

Every car abandoned or not has a title. If it was last registered in CA then CA MVD will have a title in their archive file. You would then file abandoned car paperwork just to get the last known title information from the MVD. And to make sure it is not stolen. Then MVD will give you information on how to contact last known owner of the car. Then you would be surprised what kind of people come out of wood work.

That doesn't work. AZ MVD comes and inspects the vehicle in its original location, you can't move it because you are not the owner, unless you are owner of the property in which the vehicle is abandoned. Legally you would have to do it in CA

Towing yard has to provide paperwork that rightful owner of the property called to get the vehicle removed.

Jeez, do i have to spell it out for you and explain every step in the process thats involved in doing shady back room deals? make something up. i had my guy come pick up the car at my house. he made something up and filed the papers. i guess you really dont want the title bad enough.
