I am not a number

One of the most frequently asked questions on UK vintage VW forums is “Which style of number plate is correct for my Volkswagen and, where can I get some from?”

Well, I can highly recommend the two companies below as I’ve had dealings with both. They are both very helpfull, reasonably priced and offer a great service.


Framptons, established in 1975, are the UK’s leading supplier of classic and vintage number plates.

They can supply virtually all types of road legal UK plates and also fun plates for export. They can supply hand painted number plates, cast aluminium number plates, pressed aluminium number plates, raised riveted white or silver digit number plates, cast polished aluminium Ace digit number plates, pressed reflective aluminium number plates, raised riveted black digit reflective aluminium number plates etc. etc…
