Front license plate bracket


Amphicar Expert
I'm in need of a front bracket to hold the plate. Does anyone have one they don't need or know where I can get one. I would take more than one. Prefer the original or original style. They may be available somewhere but I haven't been staying up to speed on this stuff for awhile. Looking forward to getting back to Celina this year and more swim ins in the future. Ahoy!

I have only seen 1 or 2 the whole time I have been redoing Amphicars.
I make a alu bracket from lower bumper bolt to bolt then mount plate to it below bumper.
will look later for a pic

Why don't you make it from steel profile by yourself, it is not so complicated.
Otherwise Gordon has it.

For what it's worth, I'm in California (a front plate state ) and have never had a front plate on either of my cars and I drive them on the freeways. No one has ever stopped me about it or given me a ticket. I did have a highway patrol guy stop me so that he could take pictures of the car though.

P.S. I always thought they looked awkward and risked damaging the paint on the front.

not a good shot but alu goes across and plate bolts to it, no extra holes in bumper 1 pc.
bracket above in Strandweiss6's pic, was made for 2 pc bumpers and if I remember there for European plates but copuild be rebent or made for USA style
(just because he lits it does not mean they have it)
I learned that the hard way when I first got my stock.



I have the 2pc bumper and the license place bracket is simply a piece of 1-1/2 x 1-1/2 x 1/8" aluminum angle 11" long under the inner-most bumper bolts on the top side. I have a very small piece of foam weatherstrip at the top of the plate to protect the point of the bow from any plate/paint contact. Simple, but it works

I called Gordon's and they haven't had these in stock for quite some time. I have a single piece front bumper so I'd probably have to drill it. Anyway, they might make a few but didn't say for sure. - AZP
