I know the odds are against me, but does anyone here know if Missouri issued one or two license plates in 1964 for pickups?
I'm trying to replate my grandfathers '64 chevy PU with originals. Thats legal if they're the appropriate year and model.
Grandpa and dad (and me!) never threw anything away, so there was a wall in the barn almost solid with old plates dating back to the '20s, but only one of each. The others were used to patch holes in the corn cribs or a million others uses, but some years they only issued one.
I've asked every old feller I know at the coffee shop and the license branch was of no help, so I'm trying here. I'm thinking if the license branch doesn't know, I oughta just try to go with one 8^)


PS-I checked ebay and alls I could find were singles, so that didn't help.

Thanks folks. Tomorrow when I go into the DOT office I can sound more confident and say "I have it on good authority..."!

Plus the actual application is thru the mail, so maybe if I send two pictures of the same plate they wouldn't catch on!

I appreciate the info.

One. I moved to Colorado in '68 and thought it was weird that CO had to have two plates. By '69 or '70, MO had to have two also. Larry

Just a thought,but for years AAA and others have published a digest of motor laws,listing various regulation for all states.If you could find one,(library?),maybe it would say or maybe AAA would know.

Well I don't hang around coffee shops and I don't work in a liscense bureau, and I do not consider myself old. Apperantley you did not ask me or I would have told you that they only issued one plate per vechicle. That may nor be the correct answer but I do not remember but only one plate on a vechicle of any kind. I left Missouri in 1968 and when I came back in 1979 they were issuing two plates. I am 99.9% sure that is right because I thought it odd that Washington state had two plates on their cars when I went to Fort Lewis.

not sure if i`m reading this right but if i remeber correctly but i think that there was a tag on the front and back and unlike most states the tag stays with the owner and not the vehicle.

The tag also stays with the owner in Colorado. Larry

Plates belong to owner,currantly 2 tags,one on front at all times whereas back is sort of optional/depends on.....

Mojo, check around for any antique auto clubs, they must know where thats what they're "playing" with.
