    I bought this Grumman Olson vehicle last year and all I got with it was a Alabama bill of sale.

    I am going to apply for a title through a title company but I don't know how these vehicles were originally titled. Grumman Olson or Chevrolet.:confused:

    Looks to be in awfully nice shape to be sold with only a bill of sale????????
    The company that sold it didn't have a title? Any reason they didn't?

    I actually bought it from Frito Lay Corp. I got a Alabama bill of sale from them as they claimed that is were they purchased it from.

    They had it redone and used it for promotional events all around the U.S.

    I used to work for a company that sold a shitload of these vans and they were all titled by the chassis Manufacturer.

    Just like the School Buses we sold were titled as a cornbinder (international) or Ford etc.. not BlueBird, Wayne etc..

    in Alabama if you car has no title and is pree 1974 all you need is a bill of sell
    with the vin # and notarized and signed by both parties
     
  13. Ha! I just sold mine a while back. I had it on here but it ended going to a local shop to use it like your's was. I used it for years for doing swapmeets. Mine was titled as a 1959 Chevy motor home. If you are going to buy or get a title, I would look into this as the plates and insurance is extremely cheap! Cool looking truck, you will have fun with it! Don

    Mine is '74 and registered as a Chevy P10. I stripped all the paint down to bare aluminum. Looks great. Put a Jasper engine (250)in it. After warranty ran out, the head blew. Got a good replacement head but never got it put back together. Moving to Vegas and gotta sell it but don't know what to ask for it.

    Mine is a '63, insurance figures it is a Chevy pick-up. Fine by me!

    Converted to an RV probably around 1970, the perfect mobile Man Cave!

    I just bought a 1966 Grumman Olson. Can you tell me if the rims are 16" 8-6.5" or 8-170 or 8-180? I am trying to find new rims for this thing and I know nothing about them.

    I used to live down the street from Frito Lay in San Diego. We found/made a hole in the fence and were chip dumpster kings. My fingers were red from pistacios for about a year and a half.
