Original number plates.

Postby Danbretta » Tue Jul 10, 2018 8:29 pm

Hi All,
I'm looking to get number plate made up for my '64. I'm looking at something as original looking as possible. It's a 7 digit plate and most I have seen online are using the 1.75" digits. We're these used during the 60s. If anyone has any original plates I'd be interested to see one or know what dimensions the plate and digits are to get one made up. I've looked online at old pics from the 60s but most seem to be taken from the front.
Many thanks in advance.

Chestnut Registrations do very original looking plates, and some fancy pants ones too

Try Framptons, they fitted seven digits into the right size plate for my 64

Thanks for your replies folks. I've had a look through the sites.
I take it there were a few font types used during the 60s.
