A "junked" vehicle is described on the existing title or ownership document as destroyed, dismantled, hulk, junk, non-repairable, non-rebuildable, parts only, scrap, wreck, etc. Junked vehicles are vehicles that have been determined by another state to be non-repairable.
Can "junked" vehicles be titled?
A "junked" vehicle cannot be titled in Oregon.
This law helps prevent the illegal activity of "title washing," moving vehicles from state to state in an effort to change or delete information on the title that indicates the extent to which a vehicle has been damaged or totaled.
If you wish to re-title the vehicle, you must work with the state that issued the junk certificate, junk title or similar ownership document.
