1964 Buick LeSabre Estate Wagon KX Code

Recommended Posts

Thanks for your comments!

Cleaned up the key for fun today, like the great slogan the had on the key!  

YOUR KEY TO GREATER VALUE!

 

Interesting, but no key under the VIN tag on the KX wagon, might have since it has been bent up some times in the past?

Since I`m here enjoying the burning sun in Tempe AZ, I decide to take a closer look at the California Balck plates that came with the KX wagon. I will restore the better one, and the other just clean, clearcote and have it on the wall in the garage back home. Went to my friends at Metro Plating, Kim and Chuck, and while having a great reunion chat, Kim arranged stripping of the better one. Went and bought some yellow color for the letters. Hope I got the correct one, looked at several forums and most of them lean towards schoolbus yellow or Caterpillar yellow. I picked neither, tried with help of the guys at the paint shop find one as similar as possible based on close to ten pictures. Going to be fun to see if it will look okay. 

Great to have the original licence plate from 1963. Car was registered in December 1963, El Cajun  California.

Do anybody  know which month they started with stickers on California Black plates in 64, and did that include a sticker with the month on the left side? I found reproduced stickers on Ebay, question is what color should the months have in 1964 ?

 

My buddy Art told me that the licence plates where produced in different Prisons in California by the imprisoned! Thereby a possible explanation that the YELLOW color on the plates could vary .
