PASSENGER - 2005 "Unbridled Spirit" base

Passenger:  Up to 1974, Kentucky issued yearly dated plates.  In 1975, the state issued a dated plate, but this time renewed it in 1976 and 1977 with stickers.  In 1978, the state issued it's first true undated multiyear plate, a plain blue/white plate with "KY" in both top corners.  1983 saw the next multiyear plate, a plain white/blue plate.  In 1988, the state began issuing graphic multiyear plates, periodically replacing them entirely with a new design.  For all designs, including the older yearly plates, the county name appeared on the plate either embossed or on a sticker.  Kentucky has never used county coding in the plate number.  Because of all the counties for each base, the pages can get enormous to download.  Beginning with the 1988 Churchill Downs base, I have split the pages into the following bases, each being a link to my website page of that type:

Pre-1988 Churchill downs base

1988 Churchill Downs base (including 1997 interim design)

1998 cloud base (including 2002 interim design)

2003 smiley sun base

2005 "Unbridled Spirit" base


2005 "UNBRIDLED SPIRIT" base:  This design began in 2005, replacing the smiley face after only three years.  The "000 AAA" plate format was retained, beginning at "A" again.  At the top was a stylized horse's head and a small state shape was in the center of the plate.  The county name appears at the bottom, but on a blue sticker this time.  Approximately in 2008, the state switched to smaller dies for the plate number, which are shown below at the link Kentucky "Unbridled Spirit" small dies.
