Why does this car have a reconstructed title?

If by reconstructed title you are referring to a vehicle that had a prior salvage title, I would think you could, contact an agent in your area. == Absolutely! No problem whatsoever. Keep in mind that a reconstructed car is worth roughly 60% of the value of a similar car with a clean title so if you total the car you will get less than real market value but hopefully you paid less for the car so it won't matter.

depends on where you live, if you live in NY then you need to transfer the title to a NY salvage title. Then, you can apply for a reconstructed title there. Here in NJ, dont have a "reconstructed title". you have to apply for a salvage inspection so that theyll give you a clear title.

Nope. Not legally anyway. The best you can do is totaled/reconstructed' if the car is roadworthy. Once issued a salvage title a car can never be issued a clean title legitimately.

60% of the value of a comparable clean titled car.

Once a salvage always a salvage or totaled/reconstructed; you cannot legally get a clear title the brand will remain. A reconstructed and roadworthy salvage car is worth 60% of the value of a comparable clean titled car. If it's still salvage maybe 25% of the value of a comparable clean titled car.

If you find a state that does not have reconstructed titles, and register the vehicle there, you may be able to do it.

Hmmm... you bought a car without getting a title? NOT a good idea. The title will state whether the car is clean or salvage or totaled/reconstructed. If you didn't get the title when you purchased the car you better make sure the car wasn't stolen. Call the state DMV with the VIN number for starters. They'll be able to give you some info on the car and the title.

If it's still salvage about 20% of the value of a comparable clean titled car. If it's reconstructed/roadworthy about 60%

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....

If it's not driveable it's worth 20-25% of the value of a comparable clean titled car. If it's reconstructed and roadworthy it's worth 60% of the value of a comparable clean titled car.

Once a salvage title always a salvage title. You may get totaled/reconstructed or some other wording but the car will never be clean again, it will remain branded and it is illegal to do otherwise.To remove the 'salvage' on the title would defraud the next buyer. It would be unethical and probably illegal.

You cannot legally make it clear, just totaled/reconstructed. You can title wash a car but that's not ethical so I won't go into the details.

Assuming it's reconstructed/roadworthy, take 40% off the value of a comparable clean titled car.

A reconstructed titled car is a car that was severely Damaged/Totaled and then a repair person or shop builds the car back up well enough to pass inspection. One should be very carefull if buying a vehicle like this because seller might not take it back or give refund. Vehicle might look fine at first but fit and driving ability may be weak or altered and when you get ready to sell the car yourself, it may be difficult or you may have to take a huge loss. NEW ANSWER A reconstructed title is a salvage car that has been repaired to be roadworthy. They are not always severely damaged, it just depends on the value of the car at the time of damage. It doesn't take much to total an older car, it takes a lot to total a new one. Personally, I would only buy a reconstructed vehicle that was at least 8 yrs old and I'd get it inspected by a pro prior to purchase. Sometimes a small fender bender will total an otherwise decent car. Keep this in mind though: a reconstructed car is worth about 60% of the value of a comparable clean titled car.

Yes, and in most states if you rebuild/restore the car to roadworthiness you can get a totaled/reconstructed title. Don't pay too much, they are worth much less than a comparable clean car and the value is often subjective.

Once a salvage title is given to a car it remains a salvage or totaled/reconstructed car. It will never legally have a clean title again. This assumes the damage was reported to an insurance company and they totaled/paid out on the car.

Not while still "totaled". Since everything is tracked by the VIN# you won't be able to insure a totaled vehicle until such time that it's made roadworthy and has a reconstructed title.

yes you have to have a title for a car

NOPE. Once a salavage always a salvage, though in some states it can be called "totaled/reconstructed".

go to and get ithe car's value based on its condition. then take off 40% of that price to get appx salvage value. this assumes the car is reconstructed and roadworthy.

The car title proves ownership. You cannot sell a or register a car without a title.
