Default 1969 Cadillac M-M hearse for sale/trade

I've decided to sell the 1969 cadillac M-M hearse. Overall decent condition. All new brakes including brake lines, lowered 3" all the way around, 472 engine, matched set of wide-whitewall tires (great shape), 1950's Cadillac hubcaps, all glass is good including the windshield. Have the side chrome strips.
The bad: There is NO TITLE. I bought this out of Virginia and it had been scrapped at one point... Ohio title laws have blocked every effort to title it here using it's original VIN#. It runs & drives, I drove it to the new house with no problems. No gas tank, it runs from a 5 gallon gas can.

FOR SALE OR TRADE... Mainly looking for a non-commercial glass 1990-1992 Cadillac hearse, but other procars will be considered and i'm looking to trade UP (my hearse and cash to you) for a nice hearse. You know me guys, anything unusual i'm up for and cash waiting for the right procar.

Cash price on the '69 is $2500

Dwayne, I wish I could get this, I had one just about like it, lowered and all (mine was only 2"), it is so close that when you got it I thought it may have been mine until I saw the interior. Anyways, have you tried to get a bonded title? A little expensive but might be an option.
Gotta love the 472. in my opinion it was the best engine Cadillac had.

Yes the original VIN# plate is still attached as well as the M-M build plate. I have a bill of sale and the info of the wrecking yard it came out of. Also have evidence of the funeral home that bought it new and ultimately junked it, they drove it to the scrapyard. How sad it was tossed aside like an old shoe.
The Ohio DMV inspection station immediately turned me away and I hurriedly left after hearing the words "I can assure you it'll never be on Ohio roads without its original paper title!" And I'm not interested in a battle with them. Someone out-of-state with more lax title laws or an Ohio collector with legal connections can straighten it out legally.
Ohio has the most strict title laws and there's not one single title service in the nation that'll deal with an Ohio resident... I've tried.

Dwayne, I have heard this about Ohio before and have had a few dealings that was trouble because of this and found no one in ohio will buy a car without a title knowing they can't get it registered. Ga. is very lax but this is good and bad being i could buy it and register with no problem as in Ga. if it is older than 1986 you don't have to have a title at all. Also 1963 was first title issued in Ga. so even if say you had a 62 or older and wanted to sell to someone in ohio it would still be a problem cause you don't have a title. We sell some stuff along at dealership without a title that goes out of state but make sure people buying know there is no way they will get a title so if they have a problem with their state just don't buy it.

My Pinner Chrysler was originally sold in New York, which in was a non title state. It was then sold to a Connecticut resident, and since it was more than 10 years old, Connecticut didn't issue a title. I purchased the car and transfer was made on the Connecticut registration, the method for transferring a non titled vehicle, and since I also live in Connecticut, no title was available. Now that I am going to move next door to Ron & Barb Devies in Ohio, does that mean that I have to leave my Pinner behind, because I don't have a title to register it in Ohio???

I think it depends on who you talk to. I bought my Ford Ranger from Michigan, where there are no titles, and got it titled in Ohio. They just verified the VIN number and issued me a title. (Michigan does have an official looking "Bill of Sale" that looks like a title and has the VIN on it, but it is not a title per se.)

My Uncle just got his fiberglass 33 Chevy titled in Ohio as an actual 33 Chevy. Not sure how he pulled that off, but he can be pretty charming...

once again it's all in who you get behind the counter. those states that will not issue a title are on record here. with a bill of sale from one of them I can title a car bought there in SD. all we care about is that you pay your taxes on it and the vin is not registered as stolen. if the vin got registered at the yard it will have salvage wrote on the title. this is all part of the big push a few years age to require all vehicals over 10 yeas old to be junked
