Default Can you legally sell a car without a Pink slip or any other paperwork.

I am looking for a cheap car for my girlfriend and I found an old BMW 2002 for $600.

The person selling it stated in the auction. "no pink or paper work being sold as is where is"

So how would I go about buying this thing and know that I will not be getting screwed. I am expecting it to be a fixer-upper. I just don't want to go to register it and find out that it has 20 years of back registration owed or even worse that it is stolen.

I do not think I could run a carfax on it due to it being a 70's car.

it varies state to state, but i think pre 1984, no title is needed to sell a car.

No. They need to file for a lost pink. If everything is legit, it will be no problem for them to get one from the DMV.

Just get the VIN and call the DMV. They may let you file for the new pink if the previous owner gives you a bill of sale and the VIN is actually clean and previously registered to the seller.

I dunno about this car. The guy selling it was not very polite or helpful.

I asked him for the vin and license plate #.
~First he asked why. I explained for fraud related reasons.
~Then he said that I could get it when I would come and look at the car.


I then asked him if he would apply for a new pink to help sell the car.
~He told me that I could apply for one after I get the car.
~He also mentioned that the car does not run. (I expected that) He made it sound like it did not need a pink slip because of that.

I then told him that I will talk to my gf about this car and that I would call him back.
He hung up abruptly.

I looove 2002's but I think you can find others in similar condition for a similar price with a title and a decent seller.

If the vehicle was not purchased from the owner whose name appears on the title, you will need a bill of sale from each in-between buyer.
