About UsOld California stickers, license plates, tabs, and Florida tags for sale, made back in the 1940's, 1950's, 1960's, & 1970's, for sale.

California expanded their Year of Manufacture (YOM) program in 2009 to add 1963-1969 passenger cars, and 1963-1972 pickup trucks.
**Update from August 2016: looks like California will be adding 1970-1980 vehicles very soon, which used the blue and yellow California license plates. Vehicles manufactured before 1963 are still eligible. The YOM program allows owners of these classic cars to use vintage plates that match up with the model year of their vehicle. The plates must be matching pairs with "cleared" (not in use) numbers to be eligible - meaning there is no record still on file, nor that the same plate number is in use on another set of plates (as California sometimes re-issued the same configurations on different year plates).
IMPORTANT: You'll also need an authentic California year sticker or metal year tab that is the same year as your car or truck. Feel free to send us an email if you have any questions about the program.
Please call us at 503-585-3497 or email us (Email Shop) if you have any questions at all about buying these plates or stickers. We are not set up for making plates.
