what sticker???
THey give a sticker on a yearly basis...goes in the upper right hand corner of the rear plate....I bought my sticker for $10 on ebay..If you look at your avatar..You have a month sticker on the upper left hand corner...That displays the month of registration...the right side show the year...simple..But you must have the sticker for the year of your car...If 63..then a 63 sticker..ect...Mine is a 66 therefore I put a 1966 sticker on it.....Whatever you do...make sure the sticker is on the plate..Or they won't except it....

do they check the serial number on the sticker? there is a guy at the Pleasanton swap meets that sells the stickers, both the month and the YOM stickers.

Perhaps I should have elaborated a little further.

For a 1963 vehicle no sticker shall be necessary as the plate was/is stamped 63.A 1964 sticker on the plate may satisfy their need to determine the year of the letter/number configuration.

If so the 1964 sticker should be on the upper left box as they didn’t use month stickers back then….

For any other year vehicle such as 1964-1969 they want to verify that year sticker is still on the plate. This would necessitate the need to carefully remove all the following years of stickers.

I have an original 1963 plate on my 67 but have been putting current year stickers on since I bought the car, since that what it had. So if I get a 1967 sticker, I can just leave it on? Then how do they know my registration is current?? Does the DMV charge extra to do this?

What some of the guys are talking is adding a black plate to a 1963 to 1969 car. As of July first the Y.O.M. law added these years. Proir to this change only 62 and older could change to an old plate to match the year of the car.

bob, keep doing what you're doing. or you can put a little tab below the plate (ask '69novajoe about that) if you want to scrape all your stickers off and just have the 67 sticker there and the month. As stated above month stickers weren't issued until about 1976, so to be correct (and have all your detents filled with stickers) you need a 67 sticker on the left and 68 sticker on the right. I think, or the other way around. Either way, if I were you I'd just keep doing what you are doing with registration. That's how I do it on my other black plate cars.

is there a problem with showing up with 2 shiny new plates and a new sticker? I have one plate off my 64 but they require 2 plates. Has anybody tried using duplicates or refurbished stock plates?

I've heard of people refurbishing black plates..The nicer they look..the more your going to pay...After I went to the DMV..I went to work on the plates that are going on my car...media blast..prime and paint...I'm taking my time so they look great when my car comes back from paint..Here's a pic of the rear plate that I'm working on now..It's not finished but by tomorrow it should be.....

If purchasing a car with current black plates, but on a non-op, can you keep the plates on the car?
I don't see why not..The plates are still registered to the car....
