Back in the 60s buying a car for touring the US would have been much
easier than it is today. Now insurance is mandatory, and you have to
show proof of insurance before you can register a vehicle. To get
insurance, you need a valid address and to register a vehicle either a
Social Security number or the equivalent. Also, the penalties for
evading any of these laws are much more onerous than they used to be.
I don't think there is any way to do it legally and I wouldn't advise
anyone to try to do it illegally.
If you have a friend or relative in the US who is willing to undergo a
bit of risk on your behalf, you could ask them to keep the vehicle in
their name and put you on the insurance as an additional driver. In
that case, if in any way you cause their rates to go up, you should
assume the extra cost.
