A lot of classic cars have titles similar to that. Salvage, modified, or otherwise. No big deal. Where that would be an issue, would be on a new car. A bank will not loan on a "dirty" title. It will have no effect on a classic. Chuck....
Location of the fuse boxes are in the following locations: . Passenger side e-box (under the cabin filter housing). . Glovebox. . Under front passenger seat (under carpet). . Trunk batterybox (above the battery). . Hope it'll help you.
If the vehicle was built with seat belts you have to have them but if it didn't have the belts from the factory your not required to have them.
usually less as your not using it for an every day driver and you can put the value on the vehicle that you want to be insured, if it's worth $30,000 you insure it for that amount.
not all classic cars have to have a seatbelt.cars that are from  1963 or older is legal to drive without a seatbelt.
It varies from state to state. And, most classics, didn't have emission equiptment, other than maybe a PCV valve. (Positive crankcase ventilation.) The catalytic converter was 74, along with the EGR, and "smog pump."
Electronic fuel injection, Breakerless/electronic ignition (no points),
If it didn't have emissions controls from the factory you don't have to pass any emissions test, check with your state as some are different, especially California.
Dodge Chrysler Plymouth is same company. It was made by the Plymouth division of Chrysler Corporation.
Try your local title department.
Get a Vehicle History Report. There are several sites that do them carfax is just one of the more well known ones right now. A history report will tell you everything from any wrecks it was in to each person that owned it.
There are no VIN numbers on a 1955 Ford. There are manufacture data plates. Look on the firewall, door post, inside glove box, in trunk.
use an air compressor hose with a nozzle designed to blow the air  on it, or a can of compressed air.
Purchase the latest edition of Hemming's Motor News from your local news stand. If you can't find what your looking for in that magazine, it ain't out there. People who run junkyards aren't stupid. If they were to get something in that was actually a rebuildable classic they're not going to sell it...

No. However, it pretty much has all the ingredients to become one, when it ages a bit. Classic means, to the car world, 25 years old, and, at 30, it becomes an antique. I read that somewhere, but, it is a pretty good guideline to follow. That BMW will be in a class of vehicles that will certainly be...
Fortunetly, lending institutions are becomming aware of the classic car market, and were, before the economy got so bad anyway, lending on them. I think it is usually the smaller places, and credit is a major factor. There is a book out, like the blue book, that actually gives a guideline as far as...

The same way you do any other vehicle, go to the bureau of motor vehicles in person and do it.
under the hood or in the glove box
  == Answer ==   Depends on where it is cracked.  If it is a small crack, J.B. Weld, found at any hardware store, can be used as a quick and temparary fix.  Otherwise it would be better to get a new block altogether.

The year, make , model and engine info would be helpful in answering your question.
A number of older Japanese models might be considered. For  instance, the Datsun Z series (240, for example), often yields cars  valued for just a few thousand dollars. It is one of the earliest  examples of a Japanese sports car sold in America, with the Datsun  name replaced by Nissan in the...
That all depends on the engine in the vehicle, muscle cars got about 9 to 12 MPG.
The classic car in that movie was a Stutz Blackhawk. The car was produced from 1971 to 1987
That is the Ashoka Chakra, it has 24 spokes as represented in the  wheel at the center of the flag of India
You should Inquire at the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles.
yes you can but you need to have all your paper work so they dont  think its something illegal
The fusible links are in the fuse box located under the hood behindthe battery. Pop the cover. They are little square plastic boxeswith clear covers on top. They are right behind the row of fuses,in that under hood fuse box. Pull each one and check them with atest light or ohm meter.
The older, more established insurance companies, (I use State Farm) have what is called "stated value." You state the value, they take a bunch of pictures, charge you accordingly, and upon loss, give you cash. Not, a replacement, or a line of crap. Just cash.....Chuck.....
Some limited production modern Bugatti's have V18 engines.Although rare but more common than the V18 is the V16 dating back to Cadillacs of the 1930's.
  A correctly set up turbo typically can add as much as 50% more power to an engine. With that said, the power a turbo adds is very dependent upon the wastegate, and fuel curve set. Turbo's are notorious for being very sensitive to the fuel/air ratio. You almost need a computer controlled fuel...

  To use the paper clip code reading method on OBD1 vehicles only (will not work with OBD2) locate your cars on board diagnostics port - usually under the steering wheel, around your left knee. It resembles an old parallel port for computers.   There will be 12 "pins" or holes on this port -...
the best way is to sell it in a car show like mecum auto auctions
Short Answer: No. Long Answer: No, it isn't- as with a bicycle ('bi' meaning two, in reference to the amount of wheels) a motorcycle must have only two wheels. If a vehicle has three wheels, it is either a tricycle (if it is not powered by an engine- if it is a tricycle it's more likely powered by a...
You need to be more specific.
In most places there is a something called a salvage title which allows you to establish ownership. Contact your local motor vehicle office to determine what paperwork is required.
The replica is 11 years 9 months. The antique is 51 years 9 months. Percentage age of repica is Approx. 22.7% Stupid question
Only Non-awd vehicles with manual transmissions, 4x4 needs to have  a neutral selection for the transfer case. If it is a RWD automatic  you must disconnect the driveshaft to prevent transmission damage.   I have heard the Saturn Vue can be flat towed.
Sorry, I checked the site and only saw a picture of a boat. Add a  link to the page and I will look again.
Virtually all early car makers had an ornament , logo or icon displayed on the car, often called by a unique descriptive name and more recognizable than the car's name.Before the 1940's radiator caps usually featured an auto maker's ornament.As the radiator was moved under a hood. the ornament...
It looks like the video has a Ford Mustang and a Buick Riviera both from 1965. Also, towards the end it shows a Lincoln Navigator with a possible model year anywhere from 2007 to 2010. I can't tell what the red car is though.
You need to provide more information. Kelley Blue Book also  requires the model year, the trim level, mileage, and a list of  features. Ultimately, the answer to this question should be found  on the KBB site as the details are specific to your model and where  you live.
Well, that would depend on which classic car we are talking about. More specifically, which engine we are talking about. Compression ratio, is the key, here. There are many options. First, there is aviation fuel. This is not really advised for street driving. However, most of your smaller airfields...
You will hurt somebody, maybe yourself. Get them checked NOW!
The definition of what represents a classic car varies around the  world. However, the Classic Car Club of America defines such  vehicles as those produced between 1915 and 1948. Hagerty Insurance  expands that category to include any model built through 1979.
This race was run from 1927-57. The original race was run from Brescia, Italy to Rome and back, a figure-eight shaped course of roughly 1500 km - or a thousand Roman miles. Later races followed twelve other routes with varying total lengths. So a map of the exact race course would depend on what...

In a dream, a car represents someone who properly manages his life, for a car is made from many well coordinated parts, and carries many things and transports them from one location to another. If one sees himself riding a litter that is carried by people in a dream, it means that he will preside...
Yes it is bc it's something good for them to work on I have a classic my self an I'm 15
VIN numbers did not start until the 50's.
That's a tough question but the 60s are better. You have the impala, mustang, camaro, and a bunch of other good cars. To be even more exact 69 was the best selling year. The 60s grossed well over 100 million dollars while the 50s only grossed 43.17 million.
You did not list the year but more than likley it is .044. It willbe listed in your owners manual. New plugs are pregapped at thefactory so they should be correct out of the box.
Well, Chevy came out with the now classic 55, Chev, which was  actually dubbed the bel-air, but not all models were bel-airs, Ford  came out with the T-bird, and the Vicky, or crown victoria.
Most of them are 5 qts. with a filter change.
I think every state is different, in Ohio it's $25 for historical plates and that's all you pay for as long as you own the vehicle, the plates are good until you sell it.
Classic cars are more expensive because they are unique in their asthetics, their craftsmanship, as well as their driving characterstics. Such factors cannot be replicated in a modern car.Classic cars are also rarer, given the fact that many were limited production models as well as most being...
On American Pickers they just sold one for $150. :)

Most classic /antique cars built before the 1960's were built with family life in mind, Speeds of 100mph (if the vehicle was capable) were possible but the suspensions were usually not capable of handling that speed during cornering.Large, tall cars with a high center of gravity are susceptible to...
