Hi So. Cal. folks,
I looking for a dealer license plate frames from Burch Ford in La Habra(I think). A metal ones from the '68 era. This is for the son's 68 that we should be finishing in the next couple of months.

If I can't find old ones I will even take the newer plastic type from that dealer. That is the dealership his car was originally sold from. I spoke to some one at the dealership last year(a grand daughter of the original dealership owner I think) and she was going to send us the newer type but they never came.

Thanks

I double checked the Marti report and at the time the cars sold it was actually J.W. Burch & Son.
Thanks for keeping an eye out.

I think the newer ones have a .com address on them. Not very period correct. :no:

You can try a swap meet. I found a dealer frame for my SportsRoof in excellent shape for $1 at the Turlock swap meet last year. Now I have to try to find another.

I have a frame. The pop metal has faint pitting, the chrome is gone. I worked for the Birch family in the 60's and found this frame in a wrecking yard in Arizona. Jim
