  • Minnesota Title

    Went to the DMV in Minnesota, to apply for my title, and this is what I needed to complete their application. I needed the sellers signature and address on that document, frame number, brief history, and the condition it is in. I also needed picture of every side of my truck and a picture or pencil tracing of the frame number, along with the original bill of sale. Got my plates and title will be here in a month or so. I hope this may help someone here in Mn. It's a little expensive make sure you have some extra loot !! Pat
    Model A's and of course the famous AA's

    So did you have a tracing or pic of the frame number, or did you use the engine number

      I had the tracings of the engine and frame #'s, along with a picture of the frame number. I was told I only needed the frame #, but figured the engine # was easier to read and confirmed the frame # without a doubt. I didn't expect to get it done in a day and with plates to boot. Pat

    Well, I'm also in Minnesota and it only took me 18 months and a lot of trips back and forth between the bonding company and DMV, and $500 to get two Model A titles. That's what happens when you go straight to the big boys at the state capital, instead of the small hometown DMV. And, I had my number tracings, as well as all the pictures on my first trip. The first think the guy said was, "gee, I've never done one of these before". That's when I should have picked up all my papers and walked out.

      I thought that was going to be my adventure too Tom, but she went right to the file cabinet and pulled out the form, She told me what I needed and I already had it all, except the previous owners signature on the document. 1/2 hour later I was back at the DMV with his signature and leaving with my plates in hand.

            I'm all over the place Bill, but mostly in my mind now. Too old to hitch hike and ride the rails. I'm still in Minnesota ! I've just been thinking a lot about 22k in a brown paper bag and a visit to Fresno

            Frame number for title application
            by devoreb
            A member of our club purchased a 1928 model A. He had the body off at one point, took a picture of the serial number with an inspector present (from DMV). The member submitted the application for title and the Raleigh people rejected it (state capital). The Raleigh person contends that 1928 frames were not stamped with serial numbers. I told him that they did stamp them and the DMV is wrong. Now...

            California DMV VIN Inspection

            Anyone with experience titling a old Ford Model A in the state of California?

            I called ahead, and explained to the CHP who was going to do my VIN inspection and let them know what vehicle I was bringing in. I was given no special instructions. When I arrived the officer spent about 20 minutes to decide I would have to take the body off the frame so he could verify the VIN on the engine...

            Identifying a 32 Fame
            by CSPIDY
            I was told the frame on my roadster was an original 1932 Ford frame
            the number stamp on the frame AR4838675 2 439 is being used as the vin number on the title.
            I have done some searching and can not confirm what year it is.
            possibly someone can help with this.

            by Barnfind
            Apparently the son of the father who inherited the 1929. has no title
            He went to the DMV and there no trace of the car being registered in Minn, but there is pioneer plate # 3334 on the car thru Minn
            he said he gave them the VIN / engine number - A1499361- Still nothing came up
            so how or what has to be done.
            Thanks for helping me on everything that going on

            Frame number is the same as the engine (VIN) number reference material
            by Great Lakes Greg
            I am restoring a July '29 for a friend. His title has a gibberish engine rebuilder number on it, and I am going to the Secretary of State soon to straighten it out for an authentic *A---* number. We have a nice frame number for reference. Is there anything "official" that I can present to show that the engine is indeed supposed to match the frame (and hence, the VIN) number? I like to go...

            VIN Number
            by JD-OHIO
            Is it possible to see the VIN number on a 31 4-door sedan without taking the body clear off? If so, could some one explain how to do it? I need to get a VIN verification done to transfer a Florida title to an Ohio title.

            VIN for a 1925 Model T
            by Curtis B.
            I am trying to register a recently bought 1925 Model T. There is no title and Ca. DMV has no records on the car. The DMV told me that I need to go to the CA, CHP to get a VIN verification. Here's where the problem is: Talking to the officier at CHP, he claims there is a stamped VIN number or serial no. on the chassis and I need to remove the body off of the car to get access to the number.

            Vehicle Number Question
            by Soapy
            The title for my Tudor reads: A4379847. Although I don't have a clean enough photo, the engine number is the same with a star at the end. Tonight, I uncovered the frame number. It appears to read Star A X 4379847 Star. What is the X, or am I reading this wrong? It would seem that all the numbers match except for that.
