Vehicle Titling in Virginia
Ok, need some help on this one. I have a '53 M38A1 that I bought from a guy with a bill of sale only. Vehicle never had a title as it was a givernment vehicle. So I go to the DMV today and attempt to get a title and I was told that it was illegal for the previous owner to sell me the vehicle without a title. Furthermore, I could not title it in my name without either the title or paperwork from the original sale 27 years ago (right). I have neither. Apparently I can do something called an affidavit of inspection which allows the DMV to verify my serial numbers and grant me a title. Wondering if anybody has any experience or thoughts...thanks.
