QUESTION FOR ALL OF YOU TITLE CHASERS. I AM IN NORTH CAROLINA AND HAVE FOUND A WAGONEER IN GOOD SHAPE. PROBLEM IS ITS BEEN ABANDONED FOR ALMOST A YEAR ON A MILITARY BASE. THERE IS NO TAG, AND THE VIN NUMBER DOES NOT REGISTER WITH LOCAL AUTHORITIES. ANY IDEAS? THANKS.
If it has a Base Decal...go to the Military Police and see who the last registered owner was and the info should be kept in their computers... they can even trace it by the VIN cuz it's required to register it on a base
RB's answer is prob the best route, but if that doesn't work out try finding some indication of the state where the truck is from (maybe last registered) like a window sticker or a dealership badge. VIN's are run by state inlets(for registration) and if you get the right state you may get a last owner name. A year is really not that long ago.
