it looks like MV-353 is issued by the DMV to the current owner only. My reading shows MV-51 is what you need.

I always take a DTF-802, which you have to fill out anyway, and get a seller signature right on it with sale price.

Should be the same plate. Stamping may be less than great.

lined up.  not sure worth saving floor and fire wall.  considering just starting with the chassis, and running the motor/trans stand alone like a buggy. 

started pulling off savable items from the van.  still left it mobile.
