This is a selection of 22 of the historic rally plates up for sale as part of the H&H Classics auction due to end on the 8th of September, with bidding underway now.

These plates were attached to some of the most famous rally cars of their era including some race winners, as well as cars driven by the likes of Roger Clark, Timo Makinen, Hannu Mikkola, and Tony Pond to name just a few.

There are rallies represented here from all over Europe and beyond, the most famous of which is likely the Monte Carlo Rally with its distinctive rally plate design that was mounted to everything from Mini Coopers to Porsche 911s and the Lancia Stratos HF.

Price estimates on this selection of plates range from £150 to £250 making them genuinely affordable to almost everyone. We’ve included all of the available information on each of these 20 plates below (admittedly it’s not much) as well as a link to the auction page for those of you who want to get an online bid in.
