How do you legally remove car title brands?

I have a classic mustang that was involved in an accident long ago. The title has been marked Totalled / Reconstructed. The vehicle has since been completely rebuilt and there is absolutely no remainder of the damage that was there. There no welding on the frame, all of the parts have been completely replaced (it's basically a new car). Is there a way to apply with the DMV to remove the brand in this instance? or is it stuck with it forever no matter what even though i've basically turned it into a new car? Thanks!

Does not matter... you will always have a salvaged title now, there is nothing you can do. Thing is, the title is also a certification from the manufacturer that the car was built to a certain standard... safety, emissions, etc... and because you have no way to prove, nor DMV have process for you to prove otherwise... you get stuck with that ugly title forever! Sorry!

Sorry, but your car is branded as that. It makes little difference if you plan on holding on the car, except insurance might be a little harder to get. But if you sell it, many buyers will stay away, even if it has been totally restored. It's always best to start with a vehicle with a clean title if you plan to restore a car.
