My T's first new plates in 50 years just came in the mail. Ain't they purdy !

I would love to see at least one plate from each of the 50 states. Period plates or antique or horseless carriage plates if your state has them. Post a picture if you can.

(Do Alaska and Hawaii even have any T's ?? Is there any state that has no registered T's ?)

On the composite picture that Mike Vaughn posted above, the plate on the bottom row, 3rd from the left, C26 375 WIS is mine from our '26 Roadster Pickup. It is an original plate that has been repainted.

Just to the right of mine, plate# 77090C Wisconsin Collector, is owned I think by Dennis and Dena Gorder of Baraboo, WI and is a currently issued plate.

Lenis' Tag

Some ribbon left on from the parade I see.

Parade Pic with License

Unfortunately I told the lady at DMV that I had a cut-off touring that was turned into a truck. So she insisted (as did the lady she called at the State) that my car is "modified" and therefore not eligible to use the year of manufacture tag as the recorded tag. So it is mounted on the side as you see above. I had to get a regular tag which is on the back. My attempts to explain that "modified" is in reference to hot rods fell on deaf ears.

Maybe they take paint chips and compare them to original paint chips (not damn likely I'd warrant) probably has something to do with how shiny they are or soft the paint is.

Steve in Tenn, how come you didn't just tell them your car is a Roadster Pickup? That's a legitimate Ford body style, that way you could have had your plate on the front instead of pon the side there.

I've seen a couple of plates on ebay that say they are DMV cleared, but how do you know that they truly are? I don't want to outlay the cash for a set and then come to find I can't use the bloody things.

Martin, you can clear the plates yourself. Just give the numbers to the DMV and they'll tell you if the plates are OK to use. If the numbers aren't being used on a currently registered vehicle, they're good to go.


Top of pagePrevious messageNext messageBottom of page Link to this message  By Bud Holzschuh - Panama City, FL on Friday, December 09, 2011 - 09:57 am:

Your right, the tail light has been painted. The paint used was labeled "gold" but really is a brass color. The good news is that so far it doesn't seem to tarnish and it has not been clear coated!

It also passes the 20/20 test (20 feet away and 20 mph and you can't tell the differance)

I think the paint is Rustoleum Gold but if anyones interested I will be glad to check and make sure thats right.

Its not a bad alternative for those of us with shallow pockets. Maybe someday I'll replace it with the real thing.

Now Ron already chimed in with foreign licenseplates, I can show you how licenseplates have looked in Denmark through the T years. And the good thing is you can now get replicas from the authorities so your car can look right on that details as well. With the original first issued number if you can document it:
1903 - 1919: (from Copenhagen - original. The red stamps are proof of origin)
1919 - 1921: (from Copenhagen county - modern replica)
1921-1930: (from Maribo County - modern replica but original number from my T)

Here is something to fill in the blanks for the great state of Texas. Texas didn't have official tags for their cars until about 1917 so in the days earlier than that the owners made their own, sometimes using metal numbers on a piece of leather---it was often their house number. The tags shown here were good for 1923 and 1924, however in 1924 the "radiator tag" shown here was fixed, usually to the front/top of the radiator. A piece of small wire was normally used to attach the tag. FYI: The first car regestered in Texas was in 1899 to Col. E.H.R. Green in Terrell, Texas. Between 1907 and 1916 cars used on public roads had to be regestered and a number shown on the car had to be at least 6" in height. Regestration began August 10, 1907 and that was for a bus in Colorade City, Texas. Some motorist simply painted their numbers on the side of the car. In 1910 there were 14,286 cars/trucks regestered in Texas.

In the 1940's and '50's my grandfather had 2 license plates used for an entirely different purpose. One was red and the other was yellow, one a 1911 and the other a 1914 I think (can't remember which was which or the states). They were made of much heavier metal than today's plates and had a baked enamel finish like the 1917 NH and 1917 OR plates in Jim Youngs photos above.

Anyhow, there was a strip of wood fastened to the top of each as a sort of handle. We used them to scrape dried apricots off the wood trays they were dried on. As far as I know, they just were tossed out when he sold the ranch to a developer in 1963. At the time, they were just old junk. Sure do wish I'd kept them!

My favorite "antique" plates are Virgina's, which resemble the old porcelain style.

As for Russia:

I was not luck to find any photos with Russian T's number plates. What can I say: the early number plates (before 1920s) were not standartized and were very primitive - because the total amount of cars in Russia was exausted by hundreds, several thousands. For example, this hand-made Turcat-Mery 28 '1915 was owned by Vladimir Lenin



1913 Car license plate



As for Model T's destiny: they was imported only before revolution and almost totally destroyed during the Civil War - that's why the most widespread car was Model A (made in USSR as GAZ-A)

For example:


Right up to 1930s license plates were not arranged, because the amount of cars was tiny.



And only after Great Domestic War (1946) USSR license plates were strictly standartized.

1946-1960


1959-1982

New Zealand used a prefix letter or letters to denote the town or county, followed by up to four numbers. You can see a variety of plates in this thread.

http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/118802/125101.html

Later on, I think about 1926, number issue became a National rather than local revenue raiser. Car numbers had two sets of three digits, like this-



However cars were issued with new plates every three years. That system remained until about 1967 when plates with two letters and four digits were introduced.

First is the plate from 1921 that I run on the front of my 1921 Touring. Disregard the chipped paint and leak on the floor.


Second is the current 2011 Indiana Historic plate.


Last is what was once an Indiana permanent plate my grandfather had on the car but the law must have changed and he got a different one in 1976. I believe Indiana has changed some laws regarding use of antique plates and for 2012 I am going to see if I can be issued the Indiana Historic Motor Vehicle plate 673 that has some character about it. I hope these three examples put Indiana on the map of plates!

How's this for drift? I hear them at night, but in twenty-five years I've seen only one live one here. They're good at keeping out of sight.

Here are the match pair of 1927 plates on Elizabeth. Picked them up at a local swap meet in original condition.

The black on white is what the standard MD plates are currently.

Happy Holidays everybody!

In Massachusetts, Year of Manufacture Plates have to be approved by the Registry and are not allowed to be painted or modified in any way. If they are not clear and legible, the Registry will not allow them to be used. My wife found this one on ebay and gave it to me as a gift and It was approved by the Registry.

Just like New York. Most states don't have that requirement, and it seems to work just fine. So far nobody has ever explained to me how they can tell whether a plate is restored or NOS.

I've had these plates with the matching dash badge for awhile now hoping to slip a 1914 touring under them some day. Very few of these sets of early California plates still have the dash badge with them.
