You should see the procedure for New Jersey. Starts with a title and lien search in state, if that's empty, five surrounding states are searched. Then certified letters sent to the seller or any discovered prior owners, an ad in the newspaper, photos of the vehicle and VIN or VIN rubbing and countless other forms. Realistically, that process couldn't be done in less than six months. I bought a project motorcycle without a title and I think I'm going to go the route of registering in Vermont and then transferring it to NJ, who will then produce a title since Vermont doesn't title vehicles that old.
