My question is this... Does anyone here know what kind of ordeal it would be to get this thing titled in the state of IN with just a bill of sale? Would it be worth the hassle or just impossible? In the past, I've always had a clear title to work with and have never traveled down this road before.
If the VIN clears and you have a proper bill of sale
filled out it's just a matter of taking that info to the DMV and applying for a lost title. There's a small fee and the usual waiting game, but after a few weeks you should be good to go.
