Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
A lien can be placed on a salvage title vehicle in KY. Also, you can obtain apportioned plates on the vehicle with a salvage title, as long as the vehicle has been certified as safe for being on the road. KY Administrative code does not prevent this. Now a salvage title vehicle is worth very little because of the branded title, so if the lienholder seizes the vehicle on the lien, it is not worth that much money to the lienholder.

They said that they rebuilt on the title

Thank you for your reply.
Rebuilt on the title is still a salvage or "branded title" in KY. You still lose significant value and while you can sell it and lien it, it just is not worth much.
