Tiny is correct. “Every state has a method of doing it”. You are in Calif. , go with Calif’s. rules.

Not sure if this helps, but your Body Serial number "6DRJ xxxx" breaks down as follows;

6 = Oakland Assembly Plant
DR = 1946 3600 w/ 125" wheel base (3/4 ton)
J = Month Built
xxxx = Unit number starting with 1001

Thanks for all the information. Unfortunately California requires the vehicle be inspected by a DMV rep which in turn requires that it be road worthy. We are not in a place to undertake that currently and the vehicle needs to be moved from the estate to a new home. The new owner can go through the process to get a bonded title or use the truck for parts for a complete restoration.

The vehicle is currently being listed as complete but for parts. You will be provided with all documentation from the estate on past ownership.

We are open to offers if the asking price is above market value. Please send me a private message with contact information if you would like to discuss anything further.

If I was 20 years younger, I'd make you an offer on that rare/uncommon truck.

I have obtained bonded titles in two states - but, this might be a problem in some states.

Good luck to you in selling it.
And, good luck to the person who buys it.

Before buying the truck, you could visit your DMV office and show them the truck and the "documentation". Ask them what you would need to get it registered?
