Glad to hear it Avalanche! Enjoy your Mk 4!
Good info.Received my Florida title in the mail today, I feel like celebrating after worrying about this for years. ABSOLUTELY follow Mustang Mans Process and you will get it done.
I took a copy of the TL-48 procedures, the certificate of origin, the form 1840 filled out just like mustang man recommends, original sales slip from factory five, and my check book. I was titling separately from getting a tag registration so I did not need the insurance coverage at this point.
A couple of points that you must do here to get it done.
1.Use FFR AS THE MAKE, not factory Five racing. It is in their data base as FFR.
2. Year as 1965 Roadster replica.
3. Weight, use what is on the certificate of origin, mine was 950lbs? , don't use something else, some have different weights depending if you got the complete kit or not . KEY here is make it match the CO. Or your going to get the response of why is it not accurate.
4. Mileage: use 1 mile if you have nothing on the vehicle.and state it is the actual mileage
5. Body type RD FOR ROADSTER.
6. Use the exact ID number that is on the CO nothing else.F5R100****RD.
Bottom line all data should agree with what is on the certificate of origin from FFR.
The only question I got was why I waited so long to have it titled? I said I am old and slow I bought the car in 2006.
20 minutes at the land o lakes paso county DMV office and I was out! The clerk at the window took all my paper work and with the supervisor got on her terminal and picked out the data I put down and it worked!
I was surprised how slick it when it.
I have tried and searched several places, I can not find a valid link to the TL-06 anywhere. "mandatory use designations and brands on Florida certificates of title".
HTHIn Florida, a FFR is NOT a kit car. Don't even say that term. It is a replica. No inspection. Just a paperwork exercise.
Look on the other forum. There are complete instructions. You even want to print out the instructions that the DMV person follows. They will thank you.

Here is what I posted there when I did mine:
I just went this morning to the Tax Collectors office on Atlantic Blvd. In and out in less than 45 minutes with an antique plate in hand and 1965 title on the way!!!
I had the following paperwork:
Certificate of Origin
HSMV 82040 "application for a title"
Florida instructions TL-48 "Application for certificate of Title for a replica motor vehicle"
Proof of insurance.
Printout of FFR "completed vehicle specs" from the MKIV brochure. They used this to get the weight. I actually put 2150 on the form. The brochure says 2250, but they used 2150.
I had the Florida form TL-06 "mandatory use designations and brands on Florida certificates of title with me, but it was not needed. There was no "kit car" vs replica discussion at all.
Good luck! I think the record is 20 minutes.
Well, we finally seem to be settled in our new home and I went over to the Tax Office in Molino FL to register my MKIV 8239. The guy kept trying to title it as a Kit Car and wanting an inspection and I kept saying look at the MCO, it’s listed as a Replica and no inspection needed per TL-48. After about 10 minutes of this he relented and FFR 8239 is now licensed and titled as a 1965 Replica with Antique plates.
Thanks so much for posting that it saved my you know whatChristian, the actual PDF file was removed from the website. I have no idea why but there are still links pointing to the TL-06 that are broken. I suspect it was mistakenly removed. I was able to find a copy of the content here:
According to Avalanche325 you shouldn’t need it.
Ugh. I’m in Clearwater. Guess I’ll expect resistance when I bring my paperwork. Just curious, did they title it a 65 Roadster?
