Old original Texas license plates

Just learned from my County Tax Office that if I bring in a good used old set of license plates and they approve them, I can use them as current plates on my 52 truck.

Hey, that's cool.
Do they have to be plates originally issued to that truck?
In other words, could a fella say, bring his grandfather's old 1958 truck to TX from another state and then locate a set of old TX plates from another truck and use them?

Far as I know it they just would have to be plates in pretty good condition or can be repaired and repainted.

There are unused plates on E-bay manytimes and I am bidding on a set right now for my truck.

Will know more when I go to the tag office with them.

Thanks Bill.
I'm going to have to keep this in mind.
Good luck and let us hear how it works out for you.

Divermo,
Do you know if the letters on your plates were hand painted yellow?

I took these down to the county tax office and ask if they would work. The ran a check to make sure they were good plate and no one else had that # registered.
After I had them painted I took them back to the office and they registered them to my pickup.
