license frame for early plates

Does anyone know of a source for license frames, preferably lighted, for early large format license plates? I'm using a 5 5/8" X 13 1/2" 1932 Washington plate on my '32. So-Cal has a 6 X 14 frame for CA plates, but the hole spacing is too narrow (7 1/2" compared to the 9" I need). I have 2 pair of mint plates with sequential numbers - which must be somewhat rare.

I have never seen any. problem is those early plates were a variety of sizes, even the same year. Your 32 plates in mint condition are probably worth $150 to $350 depending on how bad a 32 owner wants them. I picked up a matching set of 34 Texas plates last year in a trinket shop on the river walk in San Antonio for $30. They were rusty and had some pinholes in them but cleaned up real nice. A couple coats of 2K primer, fill some holes and apply the paint. Turns out Krylon OSHA orange is the perfect color for 34 Texas plates.
