I'm trying to buy an out of state 1971 deuce that has the wrong year on the title due to a DMV error from 2 years ago. Title says 2005 because they used the wrong chart for reading the VIN.
Does anyone know how to get this fixed? My state says they can only go by the title presented.
Help!

In what state is this prospective purchase currently titled?
Is the SELLER willing to get the Title corrected PRIOR to you purchasing the vehicle? If not, then he should be giving you a price that is commensurate with NOT having a CLEAN TITLE. Basically he is sweeping off HIS dirty title problem onto you.

Hopefully, once the current titling state is known to us, there will be SS Members from that state chiming in with knowledgeable insight as to how to work this out.

I received some advice on how to correct the year on the title. Get an affidavit from a dealer and go to the dealer investigator for my area here in Idaho.
Spoke to the dealer investigator. He has addressed this before and there is nothing he can do. Apparently when vehicles go through depot and is overhauled they give them a new 17 digit VIN that changes the year of manufacture to what ever year it is. In this case it went from a 1971 to a 2005.

Anyone else run into this? Know a resolve? I want to get my new title and tags but not yet if I can fix this first.
