You can about any older Pa plate but from what I understand you'll have to apply for a personal plate with the old plate's number. The state will send you a new issue plate plat you'll just put away. A buddy did that with his blue plate when they were being phased out. I have a yellow plate ready to go if I want to swap out my Pa Zoo plate.

That's nice to know. Never researched it, but just figured old plates were obsolete when the new design came out. I got a few blue ones, may look into down the road.

With the classic & antique registration they will allow you to replace the current issue plate with a period correct old plate up to the bicentennial plate (last issued in '76.) Not sure if this is allowed with a collectors registration.

I think the vintage license plates in PA don't apply to Collectors Registration ... and to clarify, the registration process classifies the vintage plate as a "vanity plate" that just happens to match whatever you entered in the system (I've always thought that was clever)

SEMA has a legislative bill website covering all 50 states, I think about 6 months ago there was a bill in Pennsylvania that would direct PennDOT to design & manufacture license plates -- to be used for the Antique & Classic registrations -- that replicated the plates used in the '60s like seen at this great website ... I think there may have been a bill to extend vintage plate eligibility to the '80s but I think it died in committee

Interesting on the PA. I was just talking about this to my brother, I have a 1932 Plate for my Ford, and he a 1955 Plate for the pro street.

My I be lazy and ask where you read this?

On the PennDOT website, search for "vintage plates" and the page / form / application will give you everything you need
