Default NUMBERED OVAL PLATES / WOG Plaques

Were the oval numbered plates in sequence with coming off the assembly line?

If you are referring to the FMCA (Family Motor Coach Association)


I believe they initially were issued with the FMCA Membership Number on them, check out http://www.fmca.com/join-family-moto...f-history.html

Randy- you stealing parts off of my donut wagon?!? j/k

Rick- are you looking to purchase a Bird? My In-laws live up in Skiatook. My wife's uncle has a 88-90 PT that he has for sale. I'm not sure what he's asking for it, but it might be worth your time. If you ever get in the Yukon area, I'd be glad to show you mine as well.

BB did have some sand cast aluminum oval plates and I have also seen engraved brass plates screwed to the side of the coach beside the door if it were a custom order, but over the years some traditions and freebees changed.

Rick,, can't help but notice you are from the land of Will Rogers.
We are just down the road in Eufaula.
If you are coming this way, give us a holler.

FMCA ovals used to be cast aluminum too. Now done in plastic.
