Hey guys! I'm new here, and I know you guys usually do the exact opposite of what I'm trying to do, but I figured someone on here might be able to point me in the right direction....
I have an opportunity to buy a very clean 1987 Volkswagen. Its been a track car all of it's life and the current owner has described it as "Production Racecar" and indicated that it does not have a title (and I would assume no VIN). If I bought it, I would receive the car with a bill of sale and that's it. As much fun as SCCA racing looks, I'm afraid I'm out of town for work far too much to enjoy it strictly as a track car.
So here's my question.... Is there any way I can turn a "Production Racecar" into a road legal and registered car for use on public roads?
I've been told I should just find another 1987 Volkswagen shell and swap the VIN over, but I'd like to keep this as legal as possible haha. The thought crossed my mind that I might be able to register it as a "Kit Car", but I have no idea what all that entails, and I'm not ever sure if this car would be eligible for something like that. Have any of you had any experience with doing something like this with one of your racecars? Is it even possible? Any direction on a good course of action? Any and all helpful advice is welcome!
PS- I live in Nebraska if that helps at all.....
