Buying a used car from another person in Pennsylvania.?

Hi,I am planning to buy a used car from another person and I have no ideas how the car title transfer process goes. The car I am buying is just a project car, something that I would like to take apart and put it back. I heard that it is the law you need auto insurance to transfer car title, is it necessary? Is there something else that I should know?Thank you and any website link would greatly help me.

Yes you will need liability insurance before you transfer the car in PA. In that state, all you need to do is go to a title/plate agency and complete the transaction. The DMV is just for licenses in PA.
