Vin number

Hello all, recently I purchased a 54 5 window truck I was so exited about getting the truck for so cheap I didn't even check to see if vin plates where on the truck or not. I did get a bill of sale . How would I go about registering this vehicle? The vin tag is missing on the door pillar. Anyway with a bill of sale Could i get a new vin somehow? Anyhow if anyone has dealt with this kind of situation before thanks in advance for any suggestions. Might have to just part out the whole truck

Re: Vin number

How would I go about registering this vehicle?
Q1- Is the original motor in the truck? I assume not...(can research the serial # on the motor for traceability)
Q2- Have you researched what Mississippi will do to title the truck?

Anyway with a bill of sale Could i get a new vin somehow?
See Q2 above...

I did some quick research and it looks like its managed by your Dept. of Revenue (shocking...) See the link.

Do some homework and i'm sure there's a way!

Re: Vin number

Mississippi is one of many states that allow a state-assigned VIN. Take the vehicle to your motor vehicle agent for a VIN inspection. If they cannot locate a VIN, they will assign you a new VIN number and attach the corresponding tag to your truck. You need only supply an affidavit explaining why the VIN is missing. In your case the truck's age alone should constitute sufficient cause.

Here is a link to the MS State Assigned Vehicle Identification Number form:

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...0EHEA-j9diBWPC

Here are the instructions; Section B1 (missing) would apply to you:

APPLICATION FOR ASSIGNED MISSISSIPPI VEHICLE IDENTIFICATION NUMBER
ALTERED, REMOVED, OBLITERATED, DEFACED, MISSING, OMITTED, STOLEN
Sections A, B, C and E must be completed if application for a Mississippi Assigned Vehicle Identification Number is for reason that the original plate is altered, removed, obliterated, defaced, missing, omitted or stolen.
A. If reason is defaced, altered, obliterated or removed, the following supporting documents must be submitted:
1. The vehicle identification number plate.
2. Affidavit by owner stating the circumstances by which the vehicle identification number was defaced, altered, obliterated or removed.
B. If reason is missing, omitted or stolen, the following supporting document must be submitted:
1. An affidavit by owner stating the circumstances by which the vehicle identification number plate was missing, omitted, or stolen. If and when the original plate is recovered, it shall be surrendered to this department.

Upon approval of application, a Mississippi Assigned Vehicle Identification Number Plate will be issued. A representative from this department will inspect the vehicle, deliver and attach the assigned Mississippi plate. After the Mississippi plate has been attached to the vehicle, owner must take form 78-602 to a designated agent (local county tax collector, dealer, or bank) and make application for a certificate of title.
