What do you make of this ad?

E-mail the seller as to why there is no title.

I would be worried. Could be a salvage or similar. Or could have come from a state that doesn't require titles. Ask if they have a bill of sale. Also check it on carfax.

No title could be a problem.

Badass_TJ 02-21-2012 12:46 PM

In maine anything 94 and older dont require a title...

Mr Mac 02-21-2012 12:50 PM

You can always research the VIN to determine the status of the vehicle and whether it is titled or not and who the last/current owner is. I did this on a Nova I was looking at several years back that had no title and lucky me, it came back stolen!

Georgia is the same way a guy there tried to sell me a CJ and all he has was a bill of sale seemed ify to me so I didn't get it how goes that work if u move to another state?

You have to check your state laws. Some only require bill of sale and you can re-title it. Some others like Kentucky require a title and if it doesn't exist, good luck.

Theft recovery, rebuild, junked title etc... there's different reasons. Possibly a previous owner didn't want to pay taxes on it anymore and turned in the title. Vehicles like this are good either as trail only rigs or part outs. Good price for what it is.

Someone converted it to a sport style roll bar too.. family cage came out in 92.. the price of "1299" is a bit odd as well, why not 1300?

PA titles everything no matter how old. If it's legit the seller can get a replacement title.

From the picture, that's a used car lot. I'm familiar with the neighborhood. There's a lot of shaky dealers in that general area. It could be a flood vehicle.

I'd say pass.

i'd say jump on it, by the time you finish with mods won't be much that hasn't been swapped anyway. you will do a full tune up on it and if the worst happens you could come real close to parting it out for what you have in it. barring it being a clean title.
