Legal Description on Title

Post by Oldbagpipe »

Background: I purchased my B190 several years ago from a very good friend of my brother in law. It had been sitting in a barn for years when I located it. I paid him and all was said to be good while he was searching for the title. Then I found out that his wife had never known about it and would not give him the box of titles that she had found and hid herself. Fast forward a couple years, it has finally been signed over to me with a lost title affidavit and I am now waiting for the hard copy to arrive.

Question: Will the title actually reference 'Airstream' or just a 'cargo van'? My van is an '88 and said to have been 'manufactured' June/88 by Okanagan Mfg (who built all the first year Airstreams) with the 'Airstream' logo and colors.

I was told by a fellow racer, who owns/owned an Airstream dealership in Oregon, that he 'thought' mine was one of the prototypes due to some of the features which did not carry over but were specific to Airstream, and the date of build. Due to the lack of available documentation, I've never been able to confirm his 'hunch'.

The state title will show it as a Ford, using the chassis VIN. I want to say one state had it listed as a Ford Airstream.

The Airstream VIN isn't the VIN used to register it.

The early Okanagan/Airstream B190s definitely do have that mix of Okanagan/Airstream build.
