September 2001: Lots of new entries this time, but we may have forgotten a few. If you sent something that isn't here, please write again.

If you can help, please reply directly: "how do i get old plates restored?  can you recommend someone who does this? thank you, chris"

December 2000: Noting the interest in old license plates for that finishing touch to the Indian, the idea for this page came up on the VI mailing list (click to sign on! -or just to get more info).

The way it works is real simple.

Send me a list of the plates you want, those you have for trade and perhaps a snapshot of your plates too. Then I'll post it on this page with a mail link to you for interested parties to get in touch. If you get what you want, please let me know so I can update the page.


PS: Check out the cool plates on Eli Sentman's site! :-)

Send your info to:

This is mainly intended as a no-money-involved trading thing, but if you need a plate and have none to trade, offering cash is ok.

Pictures in jpeg/jpg format email attachments, please.

We are starting to get requests for car plates and 1960s-70s plates. Sorry, but this page is for pre 1953 Indian license plates. We should have made that clearer. Hope you find what you need elsewhere.
