SINCE THE CAR WAS APART I COULD NOT BRING IT TO THE DMV FOR VERIFICATION. YOU GET THE BILL OF SALE FROM THE PREVIOUS OWNER AND EVERYTHING I HAVE FROM THE CA. DMV. A THOUSAND DOLLAR NON REFUNDABLE PAYPAL DEPOSIT IS REQUIRED UPON WINNING THE BID. THE BALANCE MUST BE WIRE TRANSFERRED WITHIN 3 DAYS OF WINNING THE BID. SHIPPING IS THE BUYERS RESPONSIBILITY. I WILL HELP OUT ALL I CAN. I WILL NEED AT LEAST 10 DAYS TO GET THE BODY ONTO THE CHASSIS AND PACKAGE UP ALL THE PARTS.
