1969 title

I have a chance to get a 69 camaro at a good price the only thing is there is no title. I had the vin checked its not stolen and tax has not been paid since 1997. The person selling bought it in 97 but never transferred the title. I have the name and address of the last owner but cannot find him. Im in KY so a bill of sale will not work any suggestions?

Does he have the last registration? Not sure if it's the same, but in NY, on old cars the registration serves as the title. Contact your dmv, i'm sure there's a way to get it done as long as there is some sort of a paper trail.

That sucks, will take some leg work for sure, but with the power of google and facebook you can find most people. If you know any police officers, they could probably help as well. Use it as a bargaining chip to get a better deal.

Can you license it in another state then transfer it to you in your state?

In Kansas you'd only need a bill of sale, I'd call your DMV and ask about that. Even talk with your local state patrol officer, they might have some insight. Good Luck!

Has anyone used a title company that says they can get you a title for a fee?

Dumb question. Since when is it the buyers issue to find the title? Should that be the sellers issue to provide a clear title?

Can the guy who currently owns it apply for a 'lost title'? I would think that he would be tearing his house apart to find the title if he wants to sell.

Unsure on having to be a resident.
I bought my 68 through a broker here in NZ,it was from a damaged auctioning the states,he had to register it in Alabama to export it to me in New Zealand.less strict rules on damaged cars back then I think.
I spose the guy selling it just wants it sold,if it is cheap enough it would be worth the hassle.

If the current owner is not willing to do the legwork, I would be looking to hire a title service. Takes the headache out of it.

Some states are different - NY does not issue titles for vehicles older than 1973. They use a "transferrable registration". I moved to AR and had to apply for a title for my '69 Camaro. Not painful at all.

1969 camaro title

Are you missing the correct title to a 1969 Chevrolet Camaro RS ? I have it if the VIN plate on the car matches this number: 124379N662991

Please contact me ASAP! I think the titles were swapped and you may have the title to another 1969 Camaro that has come into my possession. I am desperately trying to find the owner of the Camaro with this VIN number so a title swap can be made to clear up this error.

Please help me find the Camaro with this VIN by spreading the word around to your friends... maybe you know someone who has the wrong title to their car, or maybe they know someone. Word of mouth is the best advertisement, and I know the correct title will be very valuable to its current owner. The car has a high price tag on it, and has been restored to almost its original condition from being a race car back in the 80s. I have no idea where this car is, but I hope this posting will help me locate it so the owner can have the title that goes with it.

I've heard that you can go to the city? state? govt. and use their tax? records to track any address changes. May have been their utilities??? But that would seem more of a personal invasion than DMV info... I really dislike DMV when it comes to things like this. You would think THEY would have the previous owner's address change!

I wanted to look up the previous owner of my car. I know his name, where he lived (in 1983), and the plate number when I bought it. I even have a copy of the check I wrote! But CA DMV won't give any updated info. I searched his name online (VERY common name) and sent a bunch of letters to the addresses. A couple replied saying they weren't that guy and liked my car... I ran into the 2 prior owners to this guy while driving it around the first few years! Wish I took down their contact info!!!

Good luck!
