My 1963 (I am told) 8 door van does not have a title. I have already invested too much in it not to have a title. The previous owner has a letter from the state of Arkansas that it was clear and could be titled if he jumped through the right hoops. He just parked it and never did anything for about 8 or 10 years. I traded a good 92 Caravan for it and have done the motor and some body work. I will be investing more soon and need to get the title. How do I research the VIN to know for sure what I have? The number is E14AHA01207. I am in MO. I have a bill of sale. Has anyone gone through this process in MO?
This confirms what I was seeing from other sources (which I was not sure I could trust) I wish it could have been the older model, but a 67 works for me. Last year of produciton. It does have the 12 volt system with alternator as well.
I'm not famaliar with titles since where I live a receipt or bill of sale is still acceptable.
I did sell a truck to a neighboring province. I had to get a bill of sale noterize and send to the buyer. It was then accepted for license in his province and insurance.
Would a sworn document from the previous owner with a notorize stamp work. ?
Your DMV should tell you how. But I heard horror story's about how they rather see the old cars get scrapped than restored and make it hard to get title.
Post this problem in your chapter forums, and you should get someone locally that may know more of what to do there.

803462 Sequential build number. Says it was built in 1966. about February. I only have a book up to 65.
Numberdummy has more info than I. So he can say what the F is also.
Mine info comes from a 61 and 65 Econoline shop manuals. Canadian version. It shows both States serial numbers and Canadian serial numbers.
The Canadian version is slightly different. They have the Sequential numbers first.
