Can I display an old tax disc in my classic car?

If cars will no longer have new tax discs to display, could an old one be displayed? For example, will I be able to drive round with a 1977 tax disc displayed to compliment other period touches to the car such as an 8-track player?

Probably not because it will be construed as unnecessarily restricting the view out of the car.
