Check out this site - A lot of info on dealing with just your problem:
yea thats only if it was used for the military. I talked to the local DMV guy about it the other week.
Hmm considering your situation, no title, I would title it as a abandoned vehicle.I forgot the details, but the DMV guy said that the DMV does all the work on finding out the POs and gathering enough information to confirm that it really is a M38A1 (document crap) umm I was also told it takes a few months to do this also. Unless it was stolen
from an army base, you shouldn't have any troubles. Just my 2 cents.
