Overview: Kansas has introduced SAN-supported legislation (H.B. 2595) to allow vehicles registered as “Antique” which are 60 years old or older the ability to forego a VIN inspection when applying for a title. The bill states Antique vehicles that are 60 years old or older only need a bill of sale as proof of ownership and an application when applying for a title. This bill expands antique vehicles eligible for certain titling procedures. Currently, only antique vehicles with a model year of 1950 or earlier can forego a VIN inspection and apply for a title using only a bill of sale as proof of ownership and an application.
The original version of the bill applied to vehicles with a model year of 1960 or earlier but was amended to apply to vehicles at least 50 years old. It was then further amended to apply to vehicles at least 60 years old. The final version of the bill passed both chambers and is now pending before Governor Laura Kelly for final approval.
