With the exception of Vic 1, number 8 would be one of the most valuable heritage plates available.

Aside from being a lucky number across many Asian countries, the number 8 plate was just the second to be registered to a private car in Victoria.

Plate numbers 1 to 6 were all originally registered to state government vehicles.

“Had a quick chat to the lady.

Her grandfather worked at what was vic roads back in the 50’s. Vic 21 and Vic 8 were handed in and he acquired them for no price.

The plates were handed down. Vic 21 to her mum and Vic 8 to her uncle.

Vic 8 was sold 20 odd years ago and Vic 21 was given to her by her mother.

She also said that she may put vic 21 to auction soon.

We both think it could bring around $500,000…”

“Some might say this is one of the most valuable Heritage Plates in the country and rumor has it that the owner has actually been offered $2 million to sell in which it was declined.

It’s believed to belong to an affluent Chinese family who own a prominent watch store on Collins St in Melbourne CBD and have a number of low digit plates within their collection.”

“Rumour has it that it was allegedly owned by a little old lady in the better suburbs and was on her slim body Camry.

When her husband passed away she went to trade in the Camry and had no idea how much the plate was worth.

Fortunately she found an honest car dealer who advised her it was worth much more than the car.

“Madam we can offer you $1000 for the Camry but many hundreds of thousands for the number plate”

Once again it is a rumour, not sure of the validity. One of those stories you hear at a BBQ.”
