Hi, it is not only a question of style. The number plate in the first picture became obsolete and invalid towards the end of the 50s. It has no official seals.Do the rules in Germany mean the number plate has to be changed to a more modern style to run on the road?

Hi, as I wrote above, you cannot use the old plates when driving on public roads. In Germany, seals are stuck to the plates by the vehicle authorities.The rules here in the UK are similar - I want a pressed aluminium plate (polished Aluminium on a black background) for one of my bikes purely because it will fit the look of the bike better than the black on yellow it should run.

They won't do this with old plates. And of course, any policeman will recognize the invalid plates, will stop (and fine) you ... ---
There seem to be different opinions on that: https://www.click4reg.co.uk/blog/illegal-number-plates-across-uk/ or http://www.nopenaltypoints.co.uk/number-plate-offences-punishments.htmlUnless a policeman has other reason(s) to stop you, having technically illegal number plates is unlikely to result in a fine here.
Lucky you! --- In a case like this, I would expect a fine, and I would pay this on the spot, because your vehicle might be also be confiscated here ... ---Unless a policeman has other reason(s) to stop you, having technically illegal number plates is unlikely to result in a fine here. You might get stopped for them but just be given a notice to correct which means you take the vehicle to an MOT station (similar to a TuV tester) and get a piece of paper to confirm the fact or take it to a police station (if you can find one open these days...).
Pre (IIRC) 1972 cars can have the old style plates fitted legally so yes, that car would be exempt.I suspect that this old car is exempt from the rules though...
UP TO £1000. And that's if you get seen, stopped etc. - with a TOTAL of 20 traffic police in the Devon and Cornwall area, there are only about 7 (maximum) on duty at any one time, to cover the whole of the area. Since they spend a lot of time on escort duties (not to mention the bane of their lives, paperwork!), you'd be unlucky to get a ticket to fix the plates let alone a fine. I know a lot of people who run show plates and none of them have ever been stopped let alone ticketed for the plates (although one had them mentioned when she was stopped for speeding.)There is a fine of £1,000 on offer for each specific offence.
Not an option in the UK. Closest would be a fixed penalty notice.I would pay this on the spot
According to the 1st link I shared 107 people were that unlucky in Devon & Cornwall in 2015. Given that D&C has an undisclosed number of fixed ANPR cameras that number may have increased in subsequent years.you'd be unlucky to get a ticket to fix the plates let alone a fine.
Yes, that is one thing. 2200 on the back looks strange, as does the Continental (in chrome) on the side above the horse decal. Iodine fog lights came also later.Engine bay edges look plastic (GRP) to me.
It could get one, if the owner applied for it. I suppose it is either a dealer's or a collector's car, and this red plate can be exchanged between cars.Interesting that the early 356 doesn't have an "H" plate but this one does.
