1945 Ohio License Plates

Brandywine General Store


An antique 1945 Ohio Passenger Automobile License Plate for sale by Brandywine General Store. The Ohio Department of Motor Vehicles issued single tags during the 1945 model year due to World War II. The 1945 OH Car Tags are white with black, the expiration date is on the bottom. All of our current inventory are "shortie" tags which are highly collectible as well as being from World War II, when license plates were scarce due to the metal shortages brought on by the massive war effort. Before 1958 when the Federal Government mandated all license plates be the same size, when a state made a plate with only a few numbers or letters, they didn't waste metal on empty spacing, the DMV would just make a short tag that was only big enough to hold what was needed. We have included pictures of each of the antique 1945 Ohio Passenger Car License Plates that we have for sale.
