I believe you're right.Could be a 1938
I don't think it's possible to look up anything about a license plate on such openly public records. If you could do that, you could perhaps learn the address of the owner and go there to steal the car. There might be other privacy issues as well.
Mike, Ford offered a Hemp or Gasoline option on the early Model T's, the T's were first built in 1908. That might be the first time an "option" was available on a production car. I believe the Hemp fuel was ethanol, and not the bio-diesel. I don't know if this option added cost to the $825 Model T. Ford dropped the Hemp fuel option in the early 1920's when oil prices dropped significantly. By the early 1920's buyers wanted style and luxury in their autos, my best guess is this was the start of the more varied option packages. The black only Model T wasn't going to cut it in era of style and luxury.
