1941 One Eighty front license plate

First let me say thank you to BigKev for all his hard work on migrating the website. Surely it is a labor of love.

My question concerns the front license plate holder on my 1941 One Eighty 7 Passenger Sedan. In as far as I can recall, all the photos I've seen of front views of 41's the license plates have been mounted on the driver's side above the bumper. Mine has a holder suspended from the bottom of the bumper in the center and in order for the plate to be centered in between the upper guards, the plate has to be slid all the way to one side of the bracket. All of this makes me think that the above the bumper plate holder is correct and mine is an after market. Any ideas?

Here is the other style I referred to. I couldn't make it so both files were attached in the original question.

The second photo, with the plate off to the side is correct. Center, not.

Nope, sorry, all out of 41's. Plenty of straight up ones like on your 37... Should be reasonably easy to find. Try Jerry Ashley in NC.

You need to press the Attach button for each one. Otherwise only the last one gets inserted.

Flackmaster: Thanks for looking. I'll start the hunt.

PackardDon: I'll have to look more closely next time.

Thanks to both of you.

If your state does not require a front license plate, you might want to opt to just leave it off altogether. The cars look much better without that big billboard out front.
I guess that's just my opinion, tho.
