It doesn't add or deduct points. However, the year plates are cool.  What are you asking for the '67 plate pair? I might be interested. Keep in mind to have them restored at about 150.00 a set.

For concours showing the vintage plates would not add and in fact they would technically be subject to a deduction given the car is represented as new when the customer received the car from the dealer. At least in the SAAC ,Mid America Shelby and MCA concours venues . Typically if found on car at time of judging we would politely ask them to remove the plates for judging just like we do for floor mats or other items left in or on the car. I can't speak for all but at least what the judges I have judged with typically do. For display only type venue or popular vote the vintage plates are a cool addition IMO.

I passed on a '66 Tennessee plate, the cool part was the lower banner on the plate read "Shelby" for the county.    :)

Part of the problem with “judging” cars is there very little consistency from year to year and organization to organization.

Some organizations refuse to supply even basic information to entrants.

I don't remember that far back, but would a temporary "paper
plate" taped to the back window or in the rear plate area be correct?
You can't leave the dealer and drive on the street without something.

Depends if its Concours Driven vs. Concours Trailered, there is a difference.  My 69 Mach has since moved to conservator but we drive it and showed it in Concours Driven with no deductions for state mandated license plates.
