Investments just like works of art and antiques, private plates were first issued in the UK back in the early 1900's. It didn't take long for the public to take an interest and to create ongoing investment opportunities.
In this 1972 BBC video, private plates such as TE 1 and TJ 1 were said to be worth around £3,000 each (just look at those cars!). Now fast forward 50 years later, the plates would be valued around £200,000 each! GLE 1 showing in the video at £300 would now be worth around £20,000. The late Noel Woodall in the video was a lovely guy and one of the main private plate dealers. Back then Noel built a fantastic business whilst paving the way for many other number plate nuts and wise investors. CarReg have many investment plates which you can easily browse and search on our easy to use system. Please contact us if you require any further help or information.
