Unhappy Sailstar Tallstar HID#00953 restoration

I've been building and sailing my own boats since I was 16. Now retired and saw this boat on trailer for sail $100.00 and grabbed it up. Got bill of sail and a corrected title from seller with mfr and model listed blank. HID# reassigned and boat mfr date is wrong. Original HID# tag is located in nose of boat as well as mfg by Sailstar in Warwick,RI. Title says 1972 but this company went under in 1971. I've seen a 1964 tallstar on line with HID#01541 so I'm pretty sure this is an earlier hull that I bought. First Tallstars were built in 1960. Is there a way to find out date of mfr and correct title? Trailer has no title or sn# but does have a Spartan sticker, and was included on bill of sale with no info. Came with wrong sails for LoneStar 16. This is going to be quite the restoration since it sat outside for 5 years full of water to the gunnels.Any helpful suggestions from someone who's gone through this problem before? I can fix the boat but the paperwork sounds like a mess.

Most states use the Dep't of Motor Vehicles. Sometimes they are helpful. Sometimes not so.

Search Sailstar on this site. There are several there and somebody may know something about yours.
