#1 Does anyone know my car (USA)

Post by Jonny XKE » Wed Aug 14, 2019 9:53 am

Has had license plate MS5047 New York and 1QBE038 California.
1E35195
I know its ownership history except for years 1976 to 2000. I believe one person owned it during that time in the Reseda area of California. I have put it on XKEDATA. This is how it looked in March 1969.

California plates went to seven digits in 1980, and my guess is that "1QBE038" is from the middle/late part of that decade. If your car isn't listed on xkedata.com, you might consider putting it there to see if the former owner jumps in.

That's interesting thanks Mark. It moved from new York to California in 1970 I wonder if they kept it on new York plates until the eighties or more likely there was another plate involved. Not sure how the US license plate system works
