I sent in required paper work to Illinois to receive a phone call telling me they won't issue a title for road use. Only off road which means no plates! Now what? anyone have one legal in Illinois.
I have a title for my Cobalt. I need it to scrap the steel body, but if you want to buy the body for scrap, you can have it & the title. Missouri salvage title.Thanks, I sent in all of the required paperwork and pictures. Car has bumpers ,e-brake ,windshield , etc, Only thing we didn't do is fenders. Illinois law looks like you don't need them because of weight. Problem is the state of Illinois.....do you know how many governors we have in federal prison...... 3! They are telling me they don't issue any titles for road use on anything with a tube chassis anymore .Here's a couple of the photos i sent in. Anyone have a clean cobalt title for sale ? please call me at 618-420-6015 if you do.
Get a hold of Baltimorehokie. He was the last one who did the MT thing. Maryland said no also kept telling him it was a dunebuggy.Thanks guy's, I followed the process Illinois says to use. Illinois is exactly like you said. I just don't know if i'm going to go through all the BS it would take to go after Illinois to get it titled. Thanks Ross but salvage won't get me anywhere in Illinois .Car has to go through same BS to get clean title. May look into Montana thing or sell car at a loss. Frustrated and leaving illinois soon !!!!
I had that thought also. This is what I had to do to satisfy PA.I would bet the reason this car was turned down was its chassis tubes are exposed, where Cobras have a full body that hides the tube chassis. Stupid, but an excuse for the state to use.
I would cite any/all other Goblins already registered in Illinois and press your point.
Illinois has a unique way of doing things. After jumping through all the hoops with paperwork back and forth to Springfield. They sent an inspector "a state sherif " to my house to do the inspection and installed a VIN plate. I never had to go to the DMV thank God!Don't be discouraged, Arizona gave me issues at my first place I went as well. Just take it to a different DMV for the inspection, telling them it is a Lotus seven replica may help significantly as well. They have tubes exposed too along with Polaris slingshots, Ariel Atoms, and of course any factory five build EVER
