I bought a 1972 911 that was off the road for 20 years or more and when I registered it in CA, they issued new white plates as the car's VIN had long since been purged from the DMV computer.

When I tore the car apart after 6 months to restore it, I found some old blue plates in the trunk smugglers box. I have no paperwork for the car other than the current title. Is there a way to get those blue plates registered back to the car?

I think the DMV should be able to (re)assign the plates to your car if the plates were manufactured in 1972 like your car. Good luck!

Looks like a front plate that wasn't used....
If it were a rear plate that was used since 72 it would look like this.....

They key to the DMV reassignment is you showing up with BOTH plates. If you only have one, you're out of luck.

Not true, they can tell. Not many will know but the ones that are into cars and plates will know. Fortunately, thatís a small percentage. A small know fact is that the first couple years of yellow on blue were different than the following years

Here in Ohio I can use original 1965 Ohio plates on my 65 car. I have to buy historical plates and at the same time take in my original 1965 plates to the DMV. They photocopy my 65 plates and send a photo to Columbus I presume and can then mount my original 65 plates on the car but must keep my newly issued historical plates in the trunk. I do this to all my historical plate cars and is a great idea.
