Has anyone out there bought an old military truck with no title or any
kind of certificate from the government? The guy i bought my Kaiser
M-725 from apparently has no documentation on this vehicle. He says he
got it from an auction and that he knows the auctioneer personally, but
he seems reluctant to give me this person's name. I have a bill of sale
for the truck so there's no problem there. I called the title office in
Springfield, IL, where supposedly all military vehicles are registered,
but they had no record whatsoever of my truck. Why not? The little,
metal plates with all the stats, serial numbers, etc. on the inside of
the driver's door and on the dash are still there. This truck has never
been titled, registered, or driven outside of the military. Any
suggestions on how i can get a title would be greatly appreciated. Also,
how might i go about tracing the history of this truck?
