Does anyone have a good picture on how to mount a front license plate on a 1919 model ? Thanks for the help in advance.

This one fits the 1921-1927 spring clip. You could make something similar to use the 1920 and earlier spring clip, but it would need to have a jog up or down to miss the crank handle.
The inevitable often happens.

The 19 uses a two piece mount. Part number 3664e in Langs catalogue.

The above bracket Steve has posted is through 1925 - the '26 - '27 bracket has a "drop" on it.

However if your car is Canadian then the front license plate is located below the drivers side headlight. Several different versions depending on the year

I have the Canadian version on our '19 Centerdoor due to the "anti-kick" device hanging in front !

But just baing wire at the axle work best

The pair of license plate mounting brackets sold by the vendors are worthless.

They need to have dog-legs so the crank clears the license plate.

See the three photos that I posted in this thread - this is what is needed but good luck finding a pair.
