... just call up the manufacturer and use the serial number to get a copy of the MCO, ...
Dont waste any more time on this. The Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin is shipped seperatly to the dealer. I worked for a car dealer who lost one of these before I was hired in May, that car was still sitting there when I went back to school in September. MCO's are even more sensitive than a title. With a title you can prove who you are and you're name is already on it.
The MCO will have the name of the first customer on it, usually a dealer or retailer. In fact, I have one in my hand as I am writing this since my state doesnt require a title for a trailer I hung onto it.
To summarize it...
"Certificate Of Origin For A Vehicle
"I, represent the company named below and certify the new vehicle described is the property of my firm and is transferred under invoice indicated to the following distributor or dealer."
You would need to have this document and a bill of sale from the named dealer to get a title.
I'm sorry to only provide bad news but if anyone does a search for this topic, there is more info on the subject.
