This is a Car Number Plate for Early 1933 Chevrolet passenger cars. Early cars had a vent window that would not open with the door window in the up position and no fixed vent window post. The later version had a fixed vent window post and these cars were called Master or Standard. Check your car to determine which plate to order.
CAR NUMBER PLATES
Dimensions:1-13/16" x 3-1/2"
Early Chevrolet cars & trucks used Car Number Plates to identify where the vehicle was made, which month it was made, show the series and the number of the vehicle as it came off the assembly line. It was not typically used as a vehicle identification number (VIN) since these plates were so easy to remove. Instead, the engine serial number was used as a VIN number. Most early cars had this plate nailed into the seat frame or the floor on the passenger side. For this reason, they are often missing. Trucks had the plate screwed to the firewall on the passenger side in the engine compartment.
Even if nothing else is visible on the plate, most times the stamped serial number can be read. This number gives valuable information about the vehicle.
A beautiful and accurate reproduction of the Car Number Plate is now available for 1925 thru 1939 cars & trucks. Now you can replace missing or damaged number plates with these show quality reproductions.
The plates changed each year until 1933. Models like Superior, Capitol, National, International, Universal, Independence and Confederate were used prior to 1933. From 1933-1936 Master & Standard were used.
Starting in 1937, the plates had Master & Deluxe Master. In 1932, there were two different Car Number Plates used. The early production cars had a number stamped into them that indicated only the plant of manufacture and the model of the car, along with the number of the car. In late 1932, they added 2-digit month of manufacture to the number. When this took place a new plate was made that had a longer field for the number. In order to make room for the longer number, the words Car Number were shortened to Car No.
