North American Van Lines is another good one you might want to get a quote from. They pick it up as is, wrap it and ship it. No packaging necessary unless you have some fragile parts on it and don’t trust them. I shipped a gutted MS80 from Michigan to North Dakota for $430ish.
Need some help dating this sign, I know what the am stands for and I believe the 32 is the batch number it also has a dot after the 32 would anybody know what year this is or where I could find out. Thanks
All items prefer to sell as one lot. Book is in as new condition with the only defect being the small tear visible on top/front of dust jacket. Thermometer is 5 in high. Antenna balls are new and were never used. Asking $45 for entire lot (shipping not included). Thanks
I can only imagine how much more fun this hobby must have been when it was innocent. When reproductions weren't even a thought. When stuff was found in its raw state and you didn't have to worry about someone screwing you over!
Like Paul mentioned, you can delete the site glasses is you want to. You'd have to get repro meter faces without the holes, lot of those pumps didnt have site glasses. The anti-knock stickers are very common on the Lead signs. The on/off switch is just a simple toggle electrical switch on the inside, it can be replaced with a new one very easily from any hardware store. The inside of the conduit is typically filled with black goo that is most easily removed with a torch to melt out (very nasty fumes. Rewiring is good.
I've never done it, but I thought it would be cool to build or buy a large light box (maybe 3' x 3', white translucent sheet with back lighting) and then frame out a piece of glass out maybe 3/32" or so out from the light box, and then just stack the ad glass inside, between the white sheet and the glass. Be a colleague of ad glasses that light up.
I personally removed some of these from an old Texaco station, so I know they were used by Texaco! I also saw some around the top of an old Cities Service station, so I believe they were also used by Cities Service. They are made of extruded aluminum and are one foot wide and most are 6 feet long. I have enough for 85 linear feet, along with the splices to connect them together. Price is $400 delivered to Iowa Gas
I think they would look great on the inside of a gas & oil display area!
