No. Just a standard-issue Liberty plate as was generally available in 1991. I needed to send them pics of the plate with the request so that they could verify that I already owned it and verify that the number hadn't been re-issued on a more recent plate.

Ironically enough though, I just picked up a pair of "historic" Liberty plates (xxxxHX) which I intend to put on my '91 F150 in January 2017. I figure it's not worth trying to prove that a basic truck Ford made millions of is "unique and collectible".

I'm in the process of putting an original '65 plate on my Giulia. The benefit I'm looking to exploit is that '65 (which is a '64 plate with a '65 sticker) was a single plate year. As there were no front plates that year there is no requirement for a front plate on a vintage-plated NY vehicle from that year. Not sure for how many/which years this was the case.

Obviously not intending to get pulled over but occasionally the Bear Mountain police department will pull front plate violators over when they are training.

An interesting loophole. Please update this thread with how it works out.

And yes, the young Park Police officers can be a little over-the-top in their desire to right a ticket. I was once pulled over for a presumed expired inspection sticker. It was January - he didn't realize the tag color had changed and my inspection was actually as current as it possibly could be.

I'm sorry to report that the exploration of this loophole is on hold at the moment. Can't get historic car insurance as the Giulia is my only car. They all require an insured daily driver in the household as well at minimum, as is widely reported elsewhere on the BB. Have tried the standard classic car insurers as well as the "mainline" insurers like State Farm to no avail. Unfortunately, if the insurance card doesn't say HISTORIC, NYS won't allow the use of vintage plates.


A fun niche to occupy, the (quasi) uninsurable by virtue of owning only a weekend vehicle!
