Title only becomes an issue when you want to sell it .

Even in California where I now live, one can register a vehicle sans title, I did it on my 1969 Jeepester when it came from Up State New York to here .

Any car from anywhere in New York or surrounding area is going to have rust issues, I remember three year old cars rotted beyond drivability, never mind the annual safety inspection, many sorta skipped it or cheated .

It may well be a good deal and well worth fixing up, God knows I used to save old junkers when this was a new car, some were amazingly good shape in spite of only costing $50 or so .

I agree. The guy is dreaming if he thinks new bearing shells will fix the knocking. I think it is time for a new engine. Even so, that is still a great price.
