The Maryland law currently says that replicas are titled as the year their built, not the year they replicate. If your title says 2019, then Maryland will try to title as 2019. As with anything, you may find some agent not follow current Maryland law. Chris was lucky and found such person. I would bet that Glen Burnie follows the law. OBTW the law does not require replicas to be handled as new cars, so inspection and emissions are not a problem. However, you will not be allowed to register (tags) as historic or street rod if your car is not titled as a 20 plus year old car.

Thanks Ken. I want to track down the same guy Chris used! Only doc I have stating “replica” is the rolling chassis invoice with the VIN. Hope that plus the less descriptive CA title will suffice. Then becomes a question of valuation and tax/fees.

Interestingly, CA BAR fastened a plate to the firewall referring to “1965 Ford V8” - go figure. Wonder if I can use that to my advantage???

Go on line and check to see if your title/vin is in the national database. If not, try invoice only going to chris's guy. If you do see it, so can the maryland dmv, and they will probably go by old title even if not presented. Good luck. Again, no problem getting car on road as newer car, just can't register as old car or run old plates.
