    I saw an ad for a 1962 Willys Jeep and the guy only wants $600 for it. The ad says it runs and it comes with a plow which I could definately use in the winter here. Only problem is that he states that there is no paperwork. I asked a few friends and they think that since it is so old I don't need a title (but I don't really trust these guys). I want to be able to drive this on the road so I need to find out for sure. I still need to check it out, but the guy is never home...

    This would be mostly a fun vehicle for bombing around on the trails during the summer, and plowing in the winter, but I still want to be able to drive it to meets and cruise around town.

    What do you think? could this be a good deal? Is the lack of paperwork a deal killer? Let me know what you think.

    Check with your state DMV.

    buy it if its in OK shape.

    If it turns out you don't need a title (or the state will issue a new one without too much trouble)

    If you can't get the title easily, just part it out and you'll make your money back a few times over.
