You can't. Only the original manufacturer can provide a LEGAL MSO.

Perhaps with the bill of sale from the previous owner, a notarized statement of facts from the previous owner and the good graces of your DMV you may be OK.

It might be time for some legal advice.

I have an RUCC kit and as far as I know, Roger didn't have an MSO for it.

Not sure about Tennessee but all I needed in Oklahoma to get mine registered were the receipts for frame, body, engine and tranny. I also had to sign an affidavit stating that it was a home built car.

Feel free to join the RU Car Crafters Forum on this site, we have 15 other RUCC owners there.

How do you like the kit? For me, assembly was a little challenging due to the lack of a decent build manual. However, now that it's finished it was worth it. Mine handles fantastic, the chassis he built is high quality. He made a very good body too, I like the way all the edges are rolled under and the thickness of it. I've noticed that on some kits, when you close the door it sounds "flimsy". When you close the door on an RUCC kit, it sounds solid as it should.

Post some pictures, we like pictures!

Thanks for the quick reply. Does anyone know where the Frame stamp is located on the RUCC kit, it may be needed for the DMV
or resale which is my intention, also can this car be sold without a MSO?

Sold, yes.
After all, you bought it.

Registered, not so simple.

Some states will register as "self constructed" if you provide proof of purchase of the major compnents (frame, body, etc.). You do have a bill of sale for the parts you bought, don't you?

A pre emptive call to your state would be in order. Of course, you are calling for a hypothetical friend who bought a kit without an MSO (COO, MCO, whatever your state calls it, you don't got it!)

It should be doable, but it will take some time and effort.

Like I said before, Roger did not have an MSO for his cars. There is no frame stamp either. I know, I have an RUCC kit.

Go back to my previous reply to see how I registered mine in Oklahoma, hopefully it's the same way in Tennesse.
