Front License Plate
#1
How many Mach 1 owners have a front license plate? I know some states require this but do you have one even if your state does not require one?

Arizona does not require a front plate. However I'm really glad they don't since I think it looks terrible on any car. I would never want one. My 72 Mach 1 came with one when I bought it and it was the first thing I took off.

I agree it ruins the look to have a front plate. JTS 71 Mach1

California requires a front plate but is rarely rarely enforced. In fact, I have not run a front plate (including my 73 Mach 1) for over 20 years.

Because the state is using more and more traffic cams, I could see a greater enforcement down the road. Still, it probably would only be a "fixit-ticket" since it could have "fallen off" accidentally. Biggrin

Iowa is another 2 plate state and I ran for years without 1 on my 39 chevy I think they look the other way on classic cars but im with the rest its just a matter of time before a young cop has to prove me wrong and I too will just pay the fine.I do carry my other plate in the car with me when traveling out of state.

Ontario is one of the provinces that require a front plate. I don't use one and I'm waiting to get tagged for it. Has anyone tried to put one of those hide away front plate brackets on their Mach? Might be the answer.

I agree with the majority of owners who think the front plate ruins the "look". Unfortunately, running without a front plate where one is required is, to the law enforcement community, what is called " probable cause" for a traffic stop. Best not to temp fate if anything else about you, your passenger, or your vehicle is illegal, you might get more than you bargained for.

Virginia requires both a front and rear plate. My 73 has a contour in the front bumper for the plate, but my 04 Mach 1 just had two holes drilled into the bumper surface for the plate.
