I think I offered a link to this site quite a while back

(For those who don't like clicking on live links the website is www.acme.com/licensemaker)

It lets you create plates for any State and for different years. For some odd reason they now only seem to offer a limited selection of years for any given State (I thought I used to be able to manually insert any date but now you are limited to a selection.) But they do go back to the 30s and 40s - and appear to stop in 1999! Maybe they've stopped updating the site, but it still works.

Select a State in the lower drop-down menu, type in your chosen plate name/number in the upper left-hand box, then hit "Make license".

You can right-click on the resulting image and save it as a picture. Resolution is only 76 dpi and the image is too big to use as it is (about 7x3 cm) so you'd probably need to put it in a photo editor to raise the resolution to print quality (200dpi) and scale down the image size to fit.
Obviously you also need access to a colour printer.

Maybe sounds like too much trouble for a lot of folks, but for anyone wanting custom full-colour plates for a particular State and era, it might be worth a try.

A couple of specimens I just knocked out very quickly:
