Michigan, the automobile capital of the world, has many residents who collect and restore antique vehicles. Since 1956, the state has offered a special, inexpensive vehicle registration for older vehicles that are operated on the road only occasionally.
Many antique cars, trucks, and motorcycles qualify for special registration as Michigan historic vehicles. A qualifying vehicle may be registered with the Michigan Secretary of State either with a Michigan historic vehicle License Plate, or an actual Authentic Michigan License Plate the same year as the historic vehicle model year.
To qualify for a historical or Authentic license plate, vehicle must be 26 or more years old. Owned solely as a collectors item. Used only for events such as historical club activities, parades, and car shows. Note: A vehicle registered with a historical plate or Authentic historic plate cannot be used for routine transportation. (This is why we keep a print-out of all of the Michigan Car Shows Scheduled with us at all times! There is always a meet Cruise or Show Event going on somewhere!) Please check with the Secretary of State to confirm.
Michigan allows residents to register their antique vehicle with a same-year general use Michigan license plate. Reproduction or remanufactured plates are not allowed. Restored are allowed. The plate must display the correct colors for the plate year. For 1984 and later model year vehicles, blue plates with white letters were issued from 1984 through 2006. These plates may be used to apply for an authentic license plate registration if the plate displays an authentic Michigan year tab corresponding to the model year of the antique vehicle. The only exception is for the 1984 blue plate because tabs were not issued until 1985.The authentic plate registration fee is $35. Authentic plate registrations are valid until the vehicle is sold, transferred, scrapped, or modified. Authentic license plates must be registered by mail and are not handled by Secretary of State offices. To obtain a registration, provide all the following documents with your application: A color photograph, a color scan, or a color photocopy of the license plate (passenger, commercial, trailer, or motorcycle). Do not mail the original plate. Personalized, government, law enforcement, manufacturer, dealer, in transit repair, disability, and special purpose License Plates cannot be used as Authentic License Plates. If in doubt, check with the department before purchasing a license plate. Proof of ownership, preferably a copy of the title, Proof of Michigan no-fault insurance.
