thanks for that...I thought that also but kept running into a 39 year figure. Then found the difference was Antique Vehicle license:

vs historic vehicle license, wonder if the Historic plates will work on vehicles greater than 26K GVW..

Hi, I know, an old post, but I have a Calif registration problem not addressed in this post.

I just had my new '69 IH Loadstar 1700 project fire truck towed home a few weeks ago. Friday I went to register it with full paperwork from Montana, and officially put it in my name. I also wanted to make it non-op.
I was told by the local California DMV that I could not do either until I drove it to them for inspection and took it to a weigh station.
The vehicle is a long-term project and may not be drive-able for a couple years. And yet I know from past experiences if I wait until it's road-worthy they will hit me up for back registration and late fees from the day it was first brought into this state.

How do people in Calif put a newly purchased, large, non-driveable, antique vehicle in their name and make it non-op at the same time?

The nearest company with a tow truck big enough to haul this thing is about two hours away. And they charge $250 an hour for their semi-truck tow truck, including travel time to and from their shop. So towing it a few blocks to the DMV for inspection after towing it to a weigh station is really not an option. Apparently, according to the local DMV, it makes no difference if I'm attempting to register it as a commercial vehicle or as an antique truck.

All I want to do is officially transfer the ownership into my name and put it up as non-op until I get it road-worthy. Any suggestions, anyone?

Thanks.

Have a friend who just bought a 1982 IH, S1800 ex-California fire truck and eventually wants to restore it as a working unit for shows and parades. What options exist for registering and driving in CA as a personal vehicle to shows, parades, etc..will he have to register it commercial as with any truck over a certain GVW or because it will not be used commercially, any other options? Current antique registration in CA requires vehicle age to be at least 39 years old..

any info appreciated..

Mike W
