    i recently purchased a 1965 chevy via evilbay.

    the title the owner sent me is about the size of an index card, pink in color.

    is this what a california title looks like? the owner called it the "pink slip" for the car.

    cars that i have purchased from other states had a larger, more elaborate looking title.

    It is correct for a car owned that long.. what was the date of issue?

    When my brother bought one many years ago while on vacation and had it sent back, the title looked like this: PINK SLIP

    Now, in the later years, I think they look like this:

    I wouldn't worry if you bought it using eBay...they have buyer's protection against such a thing.

    Good luck with the car!

    I can attest that Studly is correct to the 'newer' certificate this is what I have had when I sold three vehicles one by a 1991, 2004, and 2007.
