Heeeeeelp: Salvage title due to theft

Okay...can someone help me out on this....I'm interested in a car from the States that has a salvage title due to theft (no accidents).

Someone said that the car can be registered as "rebuildable" and then "rebuilt"...but since there's nothing wrong with it....what exactly do you have to do to get it ito "rebuilt" status from salvage status? This is in California state if that makes any difference.

Thanks.

Does it have a salvage tittle or not?

If it does and its registered it has already been inspected for road use and you have to do nothing.

It currently has a salvage title. So all I need to do is pay for the inspection? It's a little od because it's a dealer that's selling it on their lot with a salvage title.

Re: Heeeeeelp: Salvage title due to theft

When dealers sell that stuff off of lot there is going to be paperwork
And if they have it, then it has probably been inspected before

But they do a inspection mostly for seat belts, seats, and drivablilty and it passes

But again if its already on the tittle you dont have to worry about anything

So basically I should get a forum member who lives near Van Nuys, CA to check it out for me?

Yes there's a few pics....car looks great, low mileage, but they stated there's a salvage title due to theft and no accidents on the listing.
