CMC in NC $11k

Not mine but this is about the least expensive running Speedster that I've seen in a while.  Nice repro Fuchs.  Stock 1600 cc rebuilt engine with single carb.  Not a fan of the matt burgundy (I like the matt silver/grey used on some new cars).  Maybe you could add fake rust under doors and call it patina. Disc brakes all around. No photos of the interior.  You could drive and work on this at same time! Price is $10,999.99 firm.

Titled as an 84 assembled vehicle?   That's going to be a nightmare for any California buyer and lots of other states.  Just one of those issues is that it will require smog testing.  Pity the poor guy or girl who jumps on it because of the price only to discover they are in a state that will make it very expensive, if not impossible, to register.

VA has an emissions exemption for vehicles 25 years old - and then only the counties near DC metro area.  NJ doesn't do emissions on vehicles 1996 back. Heck, FL has NO safety or emissions tests AT ALL - they only want to verify the VIN and note the speedo mileage.  So best to check with your state DMV before purchasing (NOT after).

If the title is clean and it's already registered in Florida it should be no problem transferring the title in Florida.  New owner in any other state, like Wolfgang said, check before you buy, not after. 

The car appears to be registered in North Carolina.

I thought that if the car was over 25 years old in California, it did not require smog for registration.

I just copied this off the California DMV website.

Does my vehicle qualify for a smog exemption?

Smog inspections are required unless your vehicle is:

  • Gasoline powered 1975 year model or older
  • Diesel powered 1997 year model and older or with a Gross Vehicle Weight rating (GVWR) of more than 14,000 lbs
  • Electric
  • Natural gas powered with a GVWR rating of more than 14,000 lbs.
  • Motorcycle

In California, there is always the SB100 Certificate of Sequence route, but that requires CHP VIN check among other steps. But what happens if the VIN number on chassis comes up flagged - as in stolen? I would expect the entire vehicle would be impounded at the minimum. Is there a free or paid service that will do a VIN look up? I know registration and lien holder information is available online at the respective State website where the car is registered for free.

CarFax can't even look up a VW "VIN" because it is really just a chassis number and not the 17 digit standard VIN that was not established until 1981.  I'd think NC would have run the "VIN" before giving it a title. FL Tac Collection Office (we don't have a FL DMV) inspects the VIN for alterations and runs it thru a nationwide database before issuing a title.
