29 Model A Roadster license plate mounting


Recommended Posts

Recently acquired my first Model A, a '29 roadster.  My state, Colorado, requires two license plates but the car only has a left-rear bracket to mount a plate.  What is generally done, or correctly done to mount a license plate in the front?  There is no plate bracket on the front of this car.

I used pipe hangers I got from ACE hardware. I put the half circle end on the light Bar and attached the plate to the hanger. They are not visible like those plate hangers everyone uses. They look like a "P" but open so you can put it on the light bar. it's not fastened to the light bar, only the plate. The end of the hanger is mounted hole end up. I think they might be for 3/4 inch pipe or maybe 1/2." There only about $1.00 each or a couple dollars for a pair.
