when I have sold a tractor I ask the buyer to sign a receipt for me. I list price, who I sold it to and "as is condition" and date of sale. if the buyer wants a receipt it is up to him. when I buy a tractor I ask the seller to sign a receipt. some will others have refused. a paper trail is a good thing I think.

I just ask because the faintest piece of documentation is worth a thousand words.

I know it's not quite the same,but my friend bought an old 1946 Chevy pickup, paid for it with the promise of a title to be sent. He worked and worked on the old truck, then as he was about to put put it back on the road he remembered he had not received the paperwork.

That was years ago and the old truck is still sitting in one of his storage sheds, after much work with seller and TN state officials they have never been able to restore the title. Previous owner just thought he had it, but now my buddy has all that work, money and time invested in a piece of scrap metal.

Not sure but I think he should be able to go to Dept. of Motor Vehicles and ask for a Abandoned Title. If he bought it in the same state that will make it a little easier. I have heard it does not cost much to do it this way. I do know I would not buy a vehicle unless they show me the title and I get it when I pay for it.

I am not sure of all the particulars in the title situation. But my friend is a computer nerd and he said he just finally gave up. TN must have some tough title laws. my state of KY all car dealers used to bring the cars to KY to get a title, fix them up and push them down south.

at one time he was going to buy another old truck that had a title and maybe change the plates, but guess that ran into a dead end.

he has plenty of other tractors and vehicles to play with.

I also try to memorize then write down the license plate number of the vehicle used in the transaction.
