8-170. Registration of antique vehicles; fee for transfer of ownership; fee and form for certificate of title. (a) Upon the transfer of ownership of any vehicle registered under the foregoing provisions of this act, its registration and right to use the license plates thereon shall expire and thereafter there shall be no transfer of any registration, and the license plates shall be removed by the owner thereof and it shall be unlawful for any person other than the person to whom such license plates were originally issued to have the same in possession. In case of a transfer of ownership of a registered vehicle the original owner of the license plates may register another antique vehicle under the same license plate designation, upon application therefor and the payment of a fee of $1.50. On and after January 1, 2000, any model year license plate transferred shall comply with the provisions of subsection (c) of K.S.A. 8-172, and amendments thereto.
(b) Upon the transfer and sale of a registered vehicle by any person, the new owner thereof, before using a vehicle on the highways of this state, shall make application to the division for registration of the vehicle.
(c) Certificate of title:
(1) Application for certificate of title on an antique vehicle shall be made by the owner or the owner's agent upon a blank form to be furnished by the division and shall contain such information as the division shall determine necessary. The division may waive any information requested on the form if it is not available. For any antique vehicle having a model year prior to 1950, the application together with a bill of sale for the antique vehicle shall be accepted as prima facie evidence that the applicant is the owner of the vehicle and the certificate of title shall be issued for such vehicle. If the application and bill of sale are used to obtain a certificate of title for any antique vehicle having a model year of 1950 or later, the certificate of title shall not be issued until an inspection in accordance with subsection (a) of K.S.A. 8-116, and amendments thereto, has been completed. The certificate of title shall be delivered to the applicant. The certificate shall contain the words "antique vehicle."
(2) The certificate of title shall contain upon the reverse side a form for assignment of title to be executed by the owner. A certificate of title may be issued under the provisions of this act without an application for registration.
(3) The fee for each original certificate of title so issued shall be $10. The certificate of title shall be good for the life of the antique vehicle, so long as the same is owned or held by the original holder of the certificate of title, and shall not have to be renewed. In the event of a sale or transfer of ownership of an antique vehicle for which a certificate of title has been issued under the provisions of this subsection, the holder of such certificate of title shall endorse on the same an assignment thereof, with warranty of title in form printed thereon, as prescribed by the director, and the transferor must deliver the same to the buyer at the time of delivery of the vehicle. The buyer shall then present such certificate of title, assigned as aforesaid, to the director or an authorized agent of the director, whereupon a new certificate of title shall be issued to the buyer, the fee therefor being $10.
