Car Rebuilding and Title Rules for Arkansas

Date: 10/28/2015 |Category: US States Rebuilt Title Rules

If you have a salvage car in Arkansas that you want to put back on the road there are some things that you must do beforehand.

What Is a Salvaged Title Vehicle?

According to the state of Arkansas, a salvage vehicle is a vehicle that has at least one of the following characteristics:

  • The damage must be at least 70% of the value of the car.
  • The car must have been flooded up to dashboard level.

Once a vehicle has been issued a salvage title, it can no longer have a “clean title”. It can, however, be issued a “rebuilt title”, after it has been repaired.

Buying and Restoring a Salvage Car in Arkansas

After you get your vehicle rebuilt, you will need to bring proof to the Office of Motor Vehicles that not only do you own the salvage car but also that you have all the parts needed to repair the vehicle.

You’ll have to supply Arkansas OMV with a filled out Affidavit of Reconstruction for a Salvage Motor Vehicle, in addition to full records on the parts you used to reconstruct your salvage car. If you contracted out the repair work instead of doing it yourself, you’ll also need records of these repairs as well.

Thankfully, once you can prove to the OMV not only that you own the vehicle in question but that you’ve put in the time, money and effort to get it repaired once more, you should be able to have it registered in your name and a rebuilt title issued to you.
