1961 Illinois license plates honored North Central College

In 1961, Illinois license plates were red and white in honor of North Central College's centennial.

Before the state of Illinois began issuing multi-year license plates in 1979, motorists would receive a new set of plates each year. The plates were redesigned each year, and the colors for the letters and numbers and backgrounds would change.

Thanks to a blog post, today we're reminded that in 1961, Illinois motorists drove around with red-and-white license plates in honor of North Central College's Centennial.
