Glad it worked out. Anyone doing this needs to find out the most historic friendly titling location to use in their location as most are clueless. In my case it was the main state NCDMV HQ office in Raleigh.

Was out the door about 10 minutes after getting to the front of a pretty short line.

My 2003 Shell Valley Cobra is at the point where I think I can register and title it. My residense is Maryland. The car's title, from North Carolina, lists the car as a 1965 "Cbra".

My state has a category for "kit car". In it the car gets inspected by the MD State Police and has a VIN assigned to it. But the title, I'm guessing, probably makes note the car is a kit car.... The title and tag then allow occasional use for car shows, club events, parades, etc ...

There is a designation for "Street Rod". It's for cars 25 years and older. The car has to be "substantially" modified from the original design ... Given the car currently has a NC title that indicates it's a 1965, maybe.... maybe... I could sort of sneak this by my MVA as a 1965. Would they notice the car doesn't have a 17 digit VIN? hmmm...

Would any of the Cobra folks on this forum respond as to how their car is titled and registered in MD. PM if you'd prefer (or send to my public email; [email protected]).

thanks, Dave K.
Dave could you PM me if you are still active on this forum? New account, I can't message yet, but I'm in the same area as you and tried using that exact Terry's Tag and Title for a title transfer of my MK3 yesterday without success. Would like to ask some questions.

Thanks,

MIke

RacerMike-
I'm in Gaithersburg and I'm building a '21 FFR cobra. I'll probably be ready to title it by the end of the month. Keep this string going so i know how it works out for you. I have been assuming i would need to take mine to Glen Burnie...
Thanks,
Preston

DO NOT DEAL WITH THE MVA! Go to a tag and title store, tag it as Historic. They will get it done with NO inspection and NO problems. I was working in Prince Frederick at the time I registered mine and used an outlet there. Young lady asked me how I wanted it titled (Historic) and 2 weeks later got a call to come get my tags. "1965 Cobra Road". They had cards from a guy around Williamsburg who reconditions original vintage tags and those are what I display with the title tags in the trunk.

Good Luck: Krusty
