began as a manufacturer of headlight lens covers for the Datsun 240Z race car back in 1974. From there, the small company developed a whole line of Datsun accessories that proved pretty popular. Not wanting to put all their eggs in one basket, the two owners of Altec
branched out and started making license plate frames.
In the early 1980’s, Altec
designed a breakthrough license plate frame called the Autocross Lens Frame, which seals the license plate completely. This ended the need for special cleaning supplies to remove road debris and dirt. This frame placed Altec
in the top of its class for all weather plate protection.
Other models soon followed, including the Ital and the Turismo, homage to Italian design while backed by American quality. Car enthusiasts worldwide were hooked on this stylish, durable line of products, and still are to this day, as Altec
continues to provide us with trendy and classic styles for every driver’s personality. If you are patriotic, there is a frame for you. If your style is simple and understated, there is a frame for you. If you are the life of the party and your style is bold, there is a frame for you.
All the materials Altec
uses in manufacturing are the best, from the gaskets to the PVC lenses, to the frame materials. Altec uses 100% stainless steel mounting hardware, and included in each packaged frame are matching screw caps to give the overall plate presence a sleek and classy feel. They seal your plate from the elements, locking out all dirt, grime and weather.
You can choose from classic clear, carbon filter, or designer art frames. The colors are crisp, the lines are prominent, and the contrast is unbelievable. Altec
frames are the highest quality license frames you can buy – accept no substitute.
