Is it possible to get a builders title for a body in white car ( in texas if it matters)? If so , how?
Seeing as I would be the second or third owner and having signed no such waiver.... maybe it could be done?I think you have to sign some sort of waiver when you buy a BIW, starting you will NEVER attempt to register it. But I don't see why you can't call it a replica. Look at all the fiberglass 32 Fords running around, they all had to get a VIN somehow.
VIN swapping is illegal. Same issue they are having with the Dynacorn bodies. Some states you "may" get away with it, but most are a no-no.Body in White cars do not come with a VIN number or a serial number of any sort. They simply have a part number as they are sold the same as replacement parts. My best guess is to take the route of swapping vin numbers of a existing legal car. As if you rebuilt the car useing your new parts. Just a try.
I believe so.....Even if you can proove you started with a actual legal vehicle and ended up with a actual vehicle?
I think so......but not sure. I'm assuming it would be an "2010 Assembled Vehicle". So...what emissions requirement is there?Do they title the car as say a 2010 and if so does it have to pass emissions ?
We did this once in N.C. when I was in the USMC, back in the 90s we documented the purchase of both vehicles and the every bit of the work done and when the finished vehicle was done the state issued a rebuilt title for it. basically we had a one good car and one p.o.s. and combined the two to make a good one. the good car had no paper work. and the junk car had good paper work.Body in White cars do not come with a VIN number or a serial number of any sort.

That looks like alot of work to run over cones in a parking lot.2003 BIW licensed in Mich..
Donor and new body
Way I looked at it was the purchase of the painted BIW and all painted components was cheaper than repainting my 95 Cobra. EVERYTHING swapped over.. still a Mustang..
