I'm not certain but I think that you'd still need to get a title for the body in order to get tags. I'm really not sure how they look at the vehicle for registration purposes but I think it's the VIN# on the body, not the chassis. Give Joe Tedders office a call and they'll be able to tell you for sure.

BTW, welcome to the board.

btw, I recall my dad and Uncle swapping bodies. engines and all other stuff in La Salle's, Caddies, Fords and so on for friends when $$$ was non-existent, back in da days --- they used whatever they could get.. mostly for free from yard owners who were vets too.

I remember back in the late 70's or early 80's my Uncle creating a "Butchered Beast" by putting the body of a Triumph TR250( or maybe 5) onto the chassis of an old AMC Eagle 4x4 car. He said it was a near straight bolt on job since the wheel base was the same. It was kinda neat to this 10 year old boy to go 4 wheeling and off roading in a British Sports car. Maybe that's why my first car was a MK3 TR Spitfire.

edit. That brought back memories of a few Butchered Beats I'd seen later on where people had taken Spits like I drove and grafted them on to Suzuki Samurai chassis of which I also drove for a short while.
