    You've found insurance without a US License, then? I still seriously question the answer you received, as it goes against the information you'll find on the state of illinois website.

    As far as specific vehicles, it really is up to you to decide what looks interesting to you, and to have a mechanic inspect it to examine its roadworthiness. I will say, that I would never commit to buying a vehicle, on ebay or anywhere else, without seeing it in person, driving it, and getting it inspected. That is even more important when you are looking at vans that are more than 35 years old. The odds of them being in good condition at that age, without a premium price, is very unlikely.

    You will need an ILLINOIS ADDRESS to title and register it in Illinois. There's no way around that, regardless of what you THINK the DMV told you. It has to be a documented physical address, it can't even be a post office box.

    How do I know? I lived in Illinois for about 35 years and had a PO box. No good, I had to give them a street address in addition.

    Thanks guys, I thought it seemed a bit too easy
    Although I have to think how does it work if you are buying a vehicle to export? which is effectively what I am intending on doing. Surely on paper you have to own it in the states and it's perfectly reasonable that someone exporting doesn't have a local address
    I have been pointed in the direction of a lawyer who will set up a Ltd company and buy the vehicle in that name but it costs $1300
    My wife has an American passport I'm surprised it is so hard to buy a car

    You can buy it no problem - it's just legally registering it so you can get license plates and drive it over here. That's the issue.

    I guess we need to figure what the minimum requirements are to prove an address

    Does anyone know what the rules are for Oregon? That's where we are headed next, no salt no sales tax
    Sounds good to me

    Even tougher.

    From dmv.org:

    You'll need to fill out a Certification of Oregon Residency or Domicile (Form 735-7182) and provide documents to prove Oregon residency. Any Oregon state tax return document will satisfy requirements. If you do not have tax return documents, you can provide any 2 documents (or more) form the following list:
    Utility bills.
    Property tax record.
    Rental or lease agreement.
    Any type of receipts or documents showing that you have been in Oregon for 6 months of the year.
    Current bank/credit union account that has been active for at least 60 days.
    Receipts of Oregon public assistance.
    Oregon voter registration card.
    Dmv.org will answer your questions for any state.

    Oh well its looking like the lawyer is the only option.
    Where on the dmv website did you find that info?
    I have spent hours on the site and have had no luck
    I just tried again specific to oregan and couldn't find the info you just posted
    I would like to wade through each state and see what the resedancy requirements are
    Cheers
    Really appreciate the help
