this number will not be allowed on an Elan as it is too new.

Yes. But maybe someone would like it on their car if they perhaps tow a trailer with a racing Elan on it?

Why can't you put that on your Elan as a personal plate.

It’s a 2003 plate and DVLA in their infinite wisdom don’t allow it as it is younger than the original car ....

FYI...

https://assets.publishing.service.gov.u ... 160914.pdf


It is an offence to alter, rearrange or misrepresent the
numbers and letters on a number plate to form names
or words, or in a way that makes it difficult to read the
registration number. For example, you should not use fixing
bolts to change any of the letters or numbers. Anyone
with a number plate that does not display the registration
number correctly could be fined up to £1000. In some
cases, the registration number may be permanently
withdrawn.
If you have misrepresented a vehicle registration number that
you have been given or bought the right to under the Sale of
Registration Marks Regulations, and the vehicle registration
number is permanently withdrawn, you would not get back
any money that you have paid for the registration number, or
any other costs you have to pay.
You cannot use a registration number to make your vehicle
appear younger than it actually is.
