DMV extends year of manufacture license plates to 1963-1969.
You can now register California black plates for YOM
use. eBay may sell these plates. You need to have a set of two plates with clear numbers including the YOM year sticker
for 1964 thru 1972 to verify the year you are claiming. For 1963 you do not need a sticker, since none was issued-
but not all offices understand this.
