I just tried this service on a 1970 Roadrunner that I purchased new (my first new car) which I would love to find, and it came back 'No record found' with the following information:
"Please check the VIN you entered for possible errors. If the VIN is correct, this vehicle may be titled in a state not reporting to NMVTIS. View a map of participating states.
If a state, salvage yard or insurer does not report a vehicle to the federal database, no report will be available.
Even though this VIN is not in the National Motor Vehicle Title Information System (NMVTIS), it does not mean that this vehicle is free of damage, title brands or other problems. NMVTIS data comes from multiple sources, but the absence of a report is not an assurance of a vehicle's condition."
So this seems to be saying that the non-existence of a report, does NOT mean the car doesn't still exist....??
