USA, Japanese & Ford Mustang plates

The Custom Plates Imports range includes USA, Japanese and the recently released Ford Mustang plates. 

USA plates

USA plates were designed to fit the number plate recess of American imported vehicles. USA plates are available in one size, 305mm wide x 155mm high and are bigger than a standard Custom Plate.

USA plates were launched in 2012 in three designs – Blue on White, Black on White and USA icon. The range was extended in 2014 to include the popular – black background with white font.

Japanese plates

Japanese plates are the same size as authentic Japanese plates, 330mm wide x 165mm high, so they will fit perfectly into the plate recess of a Japanese imported car. 

Japanese plates were launched in June 2015 and are available in two designs;

1. The Japanese ‘Car Symbol’ plate has a similar look to the authentic Japanese plates. The plate features two Japanese symbols; the Japanese translation for Japan is written across the top of the plate next to ‘VIC’. The Japanese translation for Car is placed at the start of the combination. This plate design is limited to five characters only to allow space for the Japanese symbol.

2. The Japanese ‘Victoria script’ plate is a Victorian inspired design. The plate features Japanese writing script. The Japanese translation for Victoria is written across the top of the plate with ‘Victoria’ in English centred across the bottom. This plate design allows up to six characters
