It's black, with yellow letters.
If you want to use one, you will have to find a cleared by DMV plate, and have a 1963 sticker for it.
I've got plates, but no stickers.

plates on my truck

I have 63 plates on my truck. My question is the number pattern on a trailer plate different. If you have one would you be willing to sell it. Could you pass on the plate numbers so I could get them checked with the DMV?

I was able to aquire a plate AND a sticker for our 1959 Tradewind. There are people out there who collect and sell stickers and plates. Do a search for license plates on dogpile or google and I'm sure you'll have not problem finding someone who deals with this stuff.Paul

Don
Don,

I have
RSX 831 single plate
HFT 089 pair
CGK 095 pair

All 3 have a "63" embossed where the year sticker goes. They are ok, not perfect, not thrashed either. What you would expect from a normally used 40 year old license plate.

Hi there;
yes I confirm the pictures are right for a 1963 California plate;
The best way to get one is, of course Ebay:

http://collectibles.search.ebay.com/...1QQsacatZ14030

or if you want to buy one for a good goal, see the website:

http://www.amchild.org/

but for today, No calif 1963; may be you can contact them to get one.

Bruno, french collector of American plates.

the black plates came out in 1963, replacing the yellow plates from '56, and were used until 1970, when the blue plates came out. Truck plates were black for a little longer, maybe a year. I think all black plates say 63 on them, no matter what year they were made.

Speaking from experience, in California you can only transfer a year correct license plate for a vehicle that is 1962 or older. I bought a correct trailer plate off of ebay (even purchased the 1964 registration sticker off of another ebay auction), but I was informed by the CA DMV that it could not be done. There have been pushes in the past to ammend the law and allow a rolling 25 year age limit before allowing year of manufacture plates, but the legislation has yet to become law. It seems that we're too busy with useless special elections these days.

Happy trailering

Thanks for the heads up on California. This is such a easy state to live in in so many ways. Right! Remember "We the people" Ha, Ha.

Hey Don,

I just came across your old thread and had to tell you about my trials with the CA DMV...

Took the A/S to DMV to get a new title (pink slip), the PO lost the title and had not registered the trailer since 1991.
Showed the Inspector...

the trailer with original plate........................................I.D. plate (untouched)...............................THE ORIGINAL registration card from 1964

Mr. Inspector says"everything looks good,but you can't keep the plate", I ask " why ", he replies "don't know,you'll have talk to Sacramento". Back inside a kind soul ( the only one that works at DMV) puts a note on new title application that I want to retain the original,sends paperwork to Sacramento.

A month later, a letter from Sac. DMV, " can not verify that plate came with trailer, surrender plate and we will issue a NEW plate".

Back to the local DMV, got the "clerk from HELL", after a heated discussion, I went home to write to Sac. DMV,

Another month later , another letter," will not issue a new title untill you surrender old plate".

Back to the local DMV, got the " kind soul clerk ", he wrote a lengthy letter explaining the situation, sent it to Sac.

Two weeks later the new Title arrives with a new licence plate number on it, the next day a NEW plate arrives.

Damn it, I'm not giving up. My sister ( a bureaucrat with the Police Dept. ) writes a LONG letter in bureaucrat-ese. I send it along with six 8x10 color glossy photographs with a paragraph and a half explanation on the back ( the 3 from above + 3 more ).

Seven days later I recieve a new title, with the ORIGINAL licence plate numbers on it, and to take the new plate and give it back to the local DMV.

HOORAY, I WON !

It was worth it

Wow Mark,that's some story and you had quite a runaround.Persistence sometimes pays off.That's a great plate and well worth the hard work you had to do in order to display it.
