I don't understand after you bought the vehicle, why you had any contact with the dealer
It is up to you to have a valid up to date registration & go though inspection,not the seller.
When you buy a vehicle, you have to go thru inspection again,as the vehicle has changed title or ownership & there is no records tied to you, until you have it inspected,nothing to do the dealer
You are aware you signed an as is contract.
That means the seller has no resonsibility after the sale
eg: it isn't a vehicle they want anything to do with, but get
rid of it & your aware of that & are on you own
I don't see what case you would expect
You knowingly bought as is for whatever reason
You only do that when you have automotive skills
& decades of experience & your plan is to restore
it, hopefully into something you can use, or you got it
cheap enough, you junk it & move on to the next project

A case for what ?
Lets start with which state you live in. Every state is different when it comes to lemon laws. Check with the attorney general's office for your state.
You said you bought it "as is" and signed a sales contract stating that in writing. Once you do that, the seller is not liable for anything that happens from that point on. If you pull out onto the road and the engine falls out, its all on you.
He or she can tell you it has a brand new engine, and if there is nothing in writing that says the seller is warranting that new engine against defects, its only their word against yours.
Now you can complain very loudly and use the better business bureau and other local media to voice your complaint, and the seller may be willing to fix a few things to keep you quiet.
But legally, as-is means no warranty.
