You need to talk to the folks at your DMV.

Do you even have a registration paper???
I do not seem to recall anything on the paperwork that requires you to keep a copy in the car---(I do).
Should have something ----- somewhere.
If your plates are 5-yr tags-----then it is registered as an ANTIQUE.
This is important to know as this type of registration is restricted use only.
Safety inspection is not required, but the vehicle is only to be driven to events or parades.
Not exactly my preffered method of entertainment.
I have 59 'TRUCK' tags on the 59, but they are registered with a regular registration (unlimited use). Also---Safety inspection is required wwith the type of registration I have.

As Bryan55EC said, you need to determine first whether you have antique plates or classic car plates. Antique plates are issued for five year periods.

There are a lot of restrictions with antique plates (when you can drive it, etc.), but the registration is much cheaper. If you just register it as a classic car using the old plates, its almost the same as regular DMV registration. The only thing you don't have to get is emissions certification, since its more than 25 years old.

Not sure about TX but most states do require you to have a copy of the registration in the vehicle at all times.
