Default Brown Tx title?

went to look at a car and the title is brown. guy states it's because he lost the original and they gave him a brown until the blue title was mailed to him. this true? It does not say salvage or rebuilt on it.

Current Texas title colors: Blue - "original" title - the one you receive when you first purchase a vehicle. Brown - certified duplicate - issued if/when the blue title is lost; has the same legal value as the blue original.

The only thing to be careful on is if he got a payday loan on it.

Tell him to call you back when the blue title comes in, and move on.

A few years ago either my title was lost in the mail or the lender couldnít did it. They sent a lien release and I got a certified copy of the title that was brown. I didnít have any issues selling that truck. The brown title is the same as the original blue title.

If he has the brown title you should feel pretty comfortable that there isnít a lien.

Nice that turned out that way. However, now days they go get a pay day loan on the title, payday place takes original, then they owner gets a certified copy and bam, they got your money, pay day has your car with the original title.

Does the pay day place not put a lien on the car? Wouldn't it show up on the brown title?

All worked out well. Got the car today and had everything transferred as well. New plates and sticker and a happy kid.

Thanks everyone!
