SALVAGED VEHICLE TITLES

APPLYING FOR A SALVAGE TITLE

There are several Colorado State laws governing the resuscitation of a totaled vehicle. Visit the State of Colorado website for more details. To transfer the title of a vehicle that once existed into a salvage title, download the Application for Salvage Title form on the state's site and complete all required information indicating why the vehicle is no longer roadworthy.

Once the form is completed the state will issue a salvage title. Possessing this title allows you to sell the vehicle without making any repairs, but the new buyer will need to get a salvage title in his/her name.


Convert Salvage Title to Regular Title

There are several steps in acquiring a Certificate of Title for a salvage vehicle that has been rebuilt and made roadworthy once again, but still holding a salvage title. 

 

Rebuilder's title for collector's vehicles

Vehicles which have an early date of manufacture and also possess historical design and collector's item value may be eligible for a Rebuilder's Title. Learn more on the State of Colorado website.
