Since these plates have no value, I guess I will send them to Mel so he can crumple them under his tractor. No sense for me to keep them any longer.

Your plates are valuable; don't discard them. The CA DMV will issue those plates as Year-of-Manufacture (YOM) plates to any car made between 1963 and 1969. CA DMV does not keep registration records longer than 7 (or perhaps 8) years, so your plates are good to go. What authenticates your plates is the "63" embossed in the right hand date window. You need to find a California buyer with a vehicle made between 1963 and 1969.

Yep. Check Fleabay and other sites. Those plates are getting some good money.
Someone here in Kalyphornya will snap them up. At the least the new Black-Yellow plates indeed are not the same. About all of the standard issued 63+ plates were 6 characters. The new ones are 7 or what ever custom thing people pay for.

Buyer beware:

California Year Of Manufacture (YOM) re-registering of old plates only covers CA license plates up to 1962.

All black CA plates (1963-69) are NOT included in the California YOM program.

Only cars with their original black plates can be re-registered.

Also, the CA DMV will not issue the new black Legacy Plates with a three letter & three numbers arrangement like the original plates.

Sadly, Lane66m plates are merely wall hangers (no offense). Moreover, since California issued the Legacy plates the market on original black plates went through the floor.

I learned all of this the hard way sad smiley

I wonder if a guy in CA had a car that fell out of the system or was bringing a car in from out of state and had AL'S plates if they can be re registered with those as original and not YOM ?

Here is a link to a pdf that explains the regulations for the California YOM plates.

I read it different than what Wccorsa explained. Everybody needs to read this and do due diligence if they wish to use YOM plates.

These are still good for the year they are stickered from my observation.

Al,
I suggest keeping the plates with the car as part of its history. If you ever decide to sell the car, having its original plates in my opinion adds value. Who knows it may end up back in CA one day...my two cents.

Yes, you are correct about YOM program, I just put a pair of black plates on my 64.

The way I am going, this Corsa will never see the road. So the plates are really a mute point. I do have the California title that goes with the plates which is kind of nice. Who in California wants to come and get this car? Probably no one because of the expense. And it doesn't have the original engine.
