Default What does NY MV907A-PARTS ONLY title mean?

I'm thinking about getting a salvage car and fixing it up. Does anyone know what the process is for a NY MV907A-PARTS ONLY title? I'm not trying to register it in NY, but I'm thinking this could pose a problem.

It would end up being a track car primarily, but I would still want it registered to drive to the track.

Any Advise?

Every state is different when it comes to titles. A 'Parts Only' titled car is never intended to be retitled again. I know that in MA you would never get it through the state salvage inspection. In RI, you wouldn't even need the old title if it was over 10 years old to get it registered and on the road.

As for buying the car, salvage titled cars make perfect track cars because they're a huge bargain. If you decide to sell it, most buyers won't care that there is no title or a parts only title.

Get a truck and trailer and go at it.

From what i've been told by people is to never buy a salvage car from NY. Something about to much paper work and hassle. I also know that any car you buy from Maryland will always come with a clean title. I myself bought a salvage car and got a great deal on it. If you can go check out the car in person or make sure it doesnt have frame damage because it is to much of a hassle to fix.

Yeah i know its a steal for a track car, but the issue would be getting it to and from the track. I like the fact that I can drive my wagon there and back now. I don't have a truck and a trailer and its not exactly in the cards at the moment living in an apartment without a garage or even a yard.

It sounds like it is state by state. Does anyone know what the laws are in CT, VA or FL? (maybe register it with my parents or inlaws)

I'm from PA and bought my car from VA. All you have to do to register the car is to provide receipts for all the parts used to fix the car and or the body shop provides proof of repair. I myself just gave them all my receipts and the title for the car. And my car was registered with no problems.

Just curious, but a dedicated track car will usually require a garage... You will be wrenching on that car fairly often.

A NY907A title is NY's salvage title. If you want to be able to have the car on the street again, every damaged part needs to be replaced, documented, and you need to have receipts for. After repairs, it has to go through salvage inspection IN NEW YORK STATE, which poses a problem for a lot of people. At this inspection, you leave the car with them, and they tear through it to make sure everything is fixed. NY has one of the worst and most difficult salvage inspections, which is why people say stay away from 907A cars.

If it's a track car, don't even bother with the inspection, and just tow it to where it has to go, or find a friend with a dealer plate so you can drive it around.

I live in PA. The state of PA will not allow a rebuilt title to be issued on a NY 907-A title.

A lot of places break your balls about having an unregistered car in your driveway too.

Although its not hard to get your hands on someone's spare/old lisc plate, just slap it on the car while its in the driveway and park it nose in so the expired/nonexistant reg/inspection decals arent visible. No one is going to run the plate to see if it belongs on the car when its in your driveway, and I dont think its even illegal to have the wrong plate on the car parked on your property, you just cant drive it that way.

Likely because it was "totaled" due to Hurricane Sandy last year (i.e. it's been in a saltwater flood).
