Dear Historic Plate enthusiasts and investors

As www.historicplates.com.au continues to lead and drive the Australian Historic Plate number plate market, with over a million dollars in sales and over 50 plates sold year to date 2011 we are pleased to announce the availability of the fine and rare West Australian Historic Plates WA "57" and WA "69".

Both are very special 2-digit WA plates, and represent brilliant investment grade buying  in a blue chip, burgeoning and developing Historic Plate Market: WA.

An incredibly interesting and historic plate, WA “69” was first issued to the PMG in Perth and was famously acquired by Alan Bond at the 1985 The Great Plate Auction, after which it was registered on his personal Rolls-Royce Corniche.  Bond had the choice and certainly the means to acquire any plate at The Great Plate Auction, and he chose to obtain the highly collectable WA ‘69’.

Privately acquired by our vendor direct from Bond, this is the first time since 1985 the plate has been publicly offered for sale and  is likely a once in a lifetime to acquire this brilliant and sought after plate.

Our vendor told us an interesting story about WA ‘69’. Kerry Packer was visiting Bond in Perth and  refused to ride to the Ascot Races in the  Bond Roller with the conspicuous plate 69 . Packers’ own car wore the far more conservative KP-222 at the time.  Relive the 80’s glory days and secure your piece of WA motoring history. There can only be one “69” plate and it’s availability on the open market is a very special opportunity indeed.

Having previously sold SA ‘69’ we know the high level of interest this plate will garner and suggest you act quickly to secure this investment grade blue chip 2-digit The Great Plate Auction plate.

Also for sale at a very attractive price is the special plate WA “57”. This is a very exciting opportunity for plate enthusiasts and investors alike to secure a blue chip, scarce and desirable Historic Plate from Western Australia.

We believe WA ‘57’ and WA ‘69’ are the first WA 2-digit plates to be offered publicly in many,  many years, and as ownership is available to anyone in Australia, these plates will be of particular interest to our interstate investors.

On offer at $69,000, the great plate WA ‘57’ is very well priced at a market correct level.  Call us to discuss WA ‘69’. We can recommend that at our asking prices there is considerable room for value growth in these rare WA plates Also, being a plate from the boom state of WA, with a strong economy, considerable resources wealth and an increasing interest in these, the most desirable of all WA plates, their investment status is virtually assured.

Having sold four SA 2-digit plates for record prices this year to date, we feel the availability of this plate, at a significantly lower price than we achieved with our SA 2-digit plates, is an unrepeatable investment opportunity for an astute investor.

Historicplates.com.au are undoubtedly the 2-digit historic plate specialists in Australia
