Looks like a great deal if what he is saying is true...but the title being in the name of someone who is deceased and not in the seller's name would concern me if I were thinking about buying it.

Ugh - the great price for me is outweighed by a couple of statements:

"Owner might choose to do a rebuild instead of troubleshooting and fixing" (the engine has thrown at least a rod if not worse, and needs a complete rebuild; hopefully the block wasn't damaged beyond repair)

"The car interior is completely stripped" (plan on investing many hours of tedious work to make it presentable again)

and the worst:

"I currently have the title but it is not in my name. I believe the original owner is now deceased" (registering this vehicle in any state will take much money and aggravation, if it's even possible at all).

My 2 cents, anyway.

I am sure each state has different standards on this--but if the original owner has signed off the title it could be OK. If it was here in California and the title was signed, it is an "open title" and is no problem to take to the DMV. I bought a car a few years ago in that condition--owner was long since dead, but the title was endorsed. DMV didn't even look at the signature let alone question it.

In Nebraska where I lived previously, you had to have a notorized signature. Been through that one too, best to have a live body there!
