Old Texas License Plates??

Does anyone have know where I can find old (1961 and 1967) Texas license
plates.

In TX, if you have a Classic Car (over 25yrs old) you can use plates
from the model year of your car. All you have to do is take them into
the tax office for approval to make sure they are still in usable shape.

I know there's a person in Lockhart, but I can't find his name.

Thanks,

Scott

And it's a 'full use' registration?

I see their 'antique' reg is pretty darn restrictive. No sunday drives in
the country with those things

From the application found at:
http://www.dot.state.tx.us/vtr/sppla...ate.htm?nbr=71


"Applicants that have license plates which are the same year as the
classic vehicle may use those plates in lieu of
Classic License Plates issued by this department. The applicant must
have the license plates examined at one of the
VTR Regional Offices or participating county tax office before
submitting the application. The license plates must be
the same year as the year model of the classic vehicle, be in good
readable condition, and have the correct color
scheme."



Looks like 'full use' to me. I guess I'll find out soon enough!

Old plates can be found on ebay. I got a set for my brother-in-law, no
problem driving with them on the car.
