How difficult is.....

It to get a tubbed chassis registered to be street legal? Is it as easy as a home made trailer?

I did it with a sand rail years ago. I think I used the original VIN from the VW.

I'm thinking of ditching my "Mistress" build and buying a new tubed chassis and building it with rockwells, 468 (700hp), th400, atlas 4 speed (11.2 ratio) 44's on propane. I would only drive it on short little trips around town goofing off and along the beach when not hitting the rocks. I have the vin and title for the 77 blazer the Mistress was at one time. I guess I could use that.

You could go that route but I think you can also have the vehicle inspected and get a green sticker. Then you take it to the dmv and a LEO looks it over and gives you the ok for a title. This is what I was told once anyway. I know that I went through something similar with a dirtbike I had made street legal. The very first step was to get insurance on it otherwise neither the dmv or the inspector will do anything.

How difficult is.....

If it's a 1977 then get some antique plates for it, and it doesn't have to be inspected. Just a thought.

WHAT! Why did you tell them that. Worth way more if it has a regular title.

Keith told me as long as it has 3ft on the original frame you can use that old vin number. So that takes care of the title part.

i do have a regular blue title on it in my name. no where on it does it say off road use only. i just did not have to get it inspected, green sheeted (out of state) and pay registration. besides, how often have you known me to get rid of stuff?
