I had my '60 F-100 registered here in California, San Jose area two
years ago. Because the cab, engine and chassis did not match
(replacement cab, engine, trans and interior over a chassis was to
blame) they used the chassis number to track the previous
registration/owner and to check for a clear titile or at least I suppose
to check for problems like a hot chassis. After a token check of the
old registration of the chassis they sent me to the CHP station up north
and then it was refited with a new plate on the door jamb and the
vehicle was registered as a salvaged vehicle using the refited plate and
engine numbers. Was not as hard as I anticipated. Good luck.

I had the title and the pink slip and the original
tags. I couldn't prove that they were for my vehicle
without an ID. I made an appointment in San Jose at a
CHP location(long wait). The CHP found the VIN # on
the right side frame and installed a ID plate in my
doorjamb and completed the DMV form. I returned the
completed form to the DMV and got my stickers for my
