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.

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!!

I havent had a huge amount of progress on the project over the last few months, but the engine has had new rings and shells fitted and is now painted up and ready to fit the cylinder head! Ive also checked over the starter, dynamo and carb this week so getting there, slowly.

Lovely car, I hope you get your registration back.
When is your car museum opening? You have enough cars to start it up now I believe............ :wink:
Best wishes,
Mike.
