Here's my situation. I've assembled a '32 Ford from numerous purchased or traded parts - a body purchased here, a frame there, etc.. I have receipts for all the parts but never had a title. The car is now assembled and ready to title in Oregon. I filled out all my paperwork and took it to a local DMV for a "pre-check". They said the paperwork is complete, and they confirmed what I already knew about the VIN inspection, etc. BUT, they said the car would be titled as a "2018 assembled vehicle" and not a '32 Ford. This is disappointing to say the least. Has anyone else run into this? Is there are way around it? If not, does having an old car licensed as a new assembled vehicle create any future problems with resale (although my intent is to drive it and NOT sell it)? Or does it impact vehicle value? Any insights would be greatly appreciated!!
