To plate it in Alberta it would just need to go through a recertification inspection. It would then be registered as "Rebuilt" or something like that. Check with SGI in Sask to see what their requirements are, but I suspect something similar.

Thanks Clint yes I better check on things here..been down that haveing a safety done thing once before and swore to stay away from that crap ever since..money grab,although I do understand why its needed..yrs ago would you believe that even though you don't drive a car here on rainy days you still need a wiper system..and must have new blades on also haha..they really get carryied away here ..depending on where you take your car..a muffler shop doing inspections and you will end up paying for a whole new set up..a brake place and yep same results...I  would be plateing it as a antique so there maybe some good news about that ?? we'll see

Check also with the insurance company as to what coverage you can get on a vehicle with a rebuilt title. My stepson had a Dodge pickup that was titled as rebuilt and the only coverage he could get was liability. His insurance company wouldnt allow collision or comprehensive coverage on a rebuilt vehicle.

yes here if we title as a antique even rebuilt the insurance company will only give you 800.00 for your car you have to go to a private insurance company to get a appraisal if you want more coverage I believe that how it works..not sure how much about liabilty ??

yep had to go and check this out..from what the insurance company here says,the car will need both inspections ? every nut and bolt ect to plate it after done..because its never been registered in sask and because its a total loss..OK I get it..But..I could buy a car here thats been registered in sask with little to no floor a badly rusted frame register it as a antique and plate it no questions asked..yes if in a accident they will only give me 800.00 dollars for it and never asked about liabilty ?? So I quess it would make a great parts car ...I see why some switch ,,well heard rumors haha change vin tags ..

 Insurance should be like that on any Dodge or Ford?

If that body on the 68 is really in that great of shape it go's against every thing I think about old cars to cut it up to use on another...too bad ..its not a rare or big block car so I can let it go but still a shame
