Nice and non repairable don't seem like a good combo when describing a LS1 car.

They are not a waste, but they are a pain in the *** to get a rebuilt title for. There are two states in the union that will do it. Kentucky and Main. Real pain in the *** though. I have done it. I used KY because I have family there. You have to have an address and proof of insurance in the state of KY. Then you have to submit before and after pics and have it inspected,but still doesn't mean they will title it. Mine passed, but I would hate to see you end up with something you can't drive on the road. Or you could track only it like said above.

if u plan on driving the car on the streets the car must pass a dps visual inspection, once it passes that u will be given a legal vin number, take that VIN number to the dmv and get it registered. Hope this helps.

I believe thats only on a repairable (salvage) title. On a non-repairable title I am not sure. Many of the flood cars from IKE were labeled as non-repairable and many of these cars had little wrong with them. Reason being is that the insurance companies did not want to fool with thousands of cars and labeling each one salvageable or not, so they just said to hell with all of them.

its a parts car. it was stolen and insurance gave it a non repairable because it has alot of pieces missing . alot. i have a rollover i can use to rebuild. there is no body damage to it and not in a flood. so if i rebuild it and just drive it to the dps or dmv they will visually inspect it? is this for tx? also i got family in KY so i can maybe do that too.

Ike flooded out my Galveston trailer home by Jamaica beach. The insurance company didn't even come look at the damage. They cut us a nice check and sent a non-repairable orange colored title. I ignorantly placed it for sale as a salvage title, but then noticed it was a non-repairable title. After careful research, I found that a non-repairable vehicle can never be registered, at least in Texas. I only did research for Texas. I listed the trailer for sale as a non-repairable title trailer for parts only. You can transfer the name of a non-repairable title to anyone, but my research concluded that you can not register a non-repairable vehicle in Texas. The guy who bought the trailer seemed to know about titles and said he would be able to get it registered. I made him sign a contract explaining the type of title so I would not get sued later.

I forgot to mention that during my research, I found that a salvage title or non-repairable title has to do with money. It was explained somewhere on the insurance forms, but I did not understand. If a vehicle is totaled, it is totaled. There was some sort of dollar amount listed to describe whether or not it would be a salvage or non-repairable title. In the end, this is all futile because the insurance agent simply checks off a box at the top for either salvage or non-repairable title. Both boxes are there, so you never actually know the reason for the title. Once this simple form is sent to the Texas DPS, it is locked in stone. We called the DPS and gave them our VIN number, and it was in the computer as non-repairable title. That was the only title we could have sent to our home so we could sell the trailer. There was nothing we could do even though we did not agree that the trailer was a non-repairable trailer. We got our insurace check, so we did not care, but I learned a good deal of information from this ordeal.

Since it was a theft, it is branded a parts only title so the car could not be retained, and possibly have all of the parts put back on (such as someone stripping their own car, getting paid, and reassembling it). If you are going to assemble one, and have a title (salvage or not) to the rollover, you should be able to get a rebuilt title, provided you have a good bill of sale for the parts car too.
