TONAWANDA, N.Y. – This 1964 Chevrolet Chevy II Nova SS (IMO) is just the right size for a car. Big enough for six passengers (or five with the front bucket seats), the Chevy II was a compact car by American standards, but most likely would have been a family sized car in Europe (and a BIG car in Asia). This one is wearing a set of period-correct New York license plates. For 1965 renewals, New Yorkers got the red sticker to put on their 1964 back plate like the one seen on today’s RealRide (inset). In the preceding years, at renewal time a metal corner tag in the contrasting color was affixed to the previous year’s rear plate (bottom photos). This was all back when we got new plates every two years. Now they seem to issue new plates whenever they feel like it.
