You can't legally buy new unstamped id tags or plates anywhere as far as I know.
If you could there would probably be more "genuine" XU1s, Monaros and GTHOs around than the factories ever made.

You can buy new stamped tags (with your numbers) from the States. You won't get legal unstamped. The guy in the States requires lots of information (like identification etc) before he stamps new ones for you. Ask on the Torana forum as I know someone there had their numbers restamped. It is not a cheap thing to do mind you. And the stamped ones are identical to the ones we have in Australia

Car companies will not sell new tags. They are essentially a legal document saying what the car is and what design rules it complies with on it's date of manufacture.

There is some grey area here.

Firstly it is illegal to remove a compliance plate from a vehicle and be in possession of a compliance plate not attached to a vehicle. There is no ambiguity in this. That has been the law since their introduction in January 1970.

Holden have two other tags on the car that are NOT compliance plates and therefore the above law does not comply.

In saying that it is illegal to represent a vehicle for something that it is not. So if you put manufacturer identifiers onto a car that miss represent the vehicle, ie Premier tags on a Kingswood, this is also illegal. (even badging a car incorrectly can get you into trouble here, ie GTS Badge on non GTS, Chev/HSV badge on Commodore etc)

To take this further even changing the identifiers on the tags to miss represent can be dangerous, ie changing the driveline, paint code and trim code to represent the vehicle as a "rarer" car.

So the answer to the above would be:

You can re manufacture your tags with your information to place on the car, but you cannot do that with the compliance plate.

so the vin tag in nz is modle prefex and chassis numbers i found a gut my self in France that dose it quite cheap to..... heures@free.fr
