Depends on your state and how long the vehicle has been setting (Not Plated)...
Over here in Indiana, you will need to drop by the license branch and pick up a couple of things.
One is a BMV version of a bill of sale.
The other is an affidavit. When you don't have a title, the seller has to fill out an affidavit and an official bill of sale.
If the last guy that had a title on it wanted to (And will cooperate) you can throw him a few bucks for a duplicate title, and for a few bucks more, you can have a 'Rush Duplicate' done (extra $10 here).
If not, you are going to have to go the affidavit & bill of sale route...
And a regular bill of sale won't do, you have to use the form from the BMV.
If it's been more than ten years since it was last plated, you are fine, all you need is a bill of sale.
