That's a hard one but not likely. Did you look into the Vin? Did you get anything in writing from the DMV? In most cases all the paperwork has to match to get anything transferred or they'll reject it.


Good luck taking on the Kalifornia DMV. You could try to appeal it but I doubt you will get any where. Ask them if the car was first sold in 1963 as a 1962 model if it would have come with 63 plates.
