I have YOM plates on my ‘53. Had a small amount of confusion at our local tax office but a call to Austin DVM and the patience of the local personnel got all the paperwork fixed up. I found original ‘53 truck plates (never issued and with the tissue paper still intact) on eBay at a reasonable? price.

I bought a set of 1949 Texas Farm Truck Plates in decent shape for a decent price. I revisited the rules and saw that Farm Truck plates couldn't be used as YOM when registered as an antique or classic vehicle. But I wonder if I were to register it as a farm truck that they could be used, since that is what it will be used for. If I can't use them, I may just run current plates and keep the YOM to display or swap out when on display. I just have to remember to swap them before heading home.

If anyone has any 1949 Truck plates for a truck in Texas, I'm in the market. Watching ebay again i guess....

Aggie,
I purchased a single plate, told DMV I have both. I put a photocopy of the plate on my interior sun visor. I just flip it down when driving!

A friend of mine is running '60 Farm Truck plates on his. He apparently wasn't aware that you couldn't run them, and neither was the clerk at the tax office.

I'm hoping my clerk will do the same. An obsure nuianse of the law I am sure that no one is familiar with. I'll give it a shot. Honestly, I want to register it as a farm truck, as that is how it will be used. I have the credentials to get farm truck plates, so I'm gonna cross my fingers and hope it works. If it doesn't, I'll just run straight plates and swap them out if I go to display it at a tractor show or somewhere else.

Honestly, as long as Mr. State Trooper can call it in and get an owner, I wouldn't think it would matter.

Hoping though that it will work as I bought a set of YOM Farm Truck plates for my dad for Christmas. He is having my Grandfathers 66 restored. He was proud as a peacock with those plates.
