Where did you get the plates made? Those are very handsome indeed.

As I have the original paperwork for our 1960 Traveller (LHD Export), which my dad bought new and drove around the U.K. before bringing it to the States, I found the bit with the original registration number (never reissued).

I can't get it reactivated unless I bring the car back to the UK (highly unlikely!) but it would be nice to have period plates with the original number. Hence my Q.
I have two Minors in upstate New York. One is the 1961 Traveller my dad bought new that year in London, where I was born. It's had a hard life but is still running cheerfully at 54K miles. The second is the oldest Minor confirmed to survive in North America, a LHD high-light Tourer built in April 1949. It's a total basket case, but will be restored over the coming years.

John, I got them from an ebay seller, they were priced very cheaply at only £17.95 including UK post! Im still holding out some small hope for original documents to turn up, thats why I didnt want to buy expensive plates as the moment. I was quite pleasantly surprised by how decent these actually are!


This is a direct link to their web site were they only cost £16.95!!
