I'd forget Fleabay and use the Chicago area Craigslist or Autotrader book.  If you think you need a title search, use Carfax.  Probably someone else did that and found that the car actually had a salvage title in FL or some place near there.  You local DMV most likely will only have its own records of when you brought it to Illinois.

search, it costs about $20 here in NY for the dmv to search it, 
basically just to verify it isn't a salvage title or stolen.
