I about fell over when I found these advertising pieces. This is a 1978 Thunderbird dealership sign. Size is 26 inches long by 14 inches high. I could find zero examples of this sign on the internet, nor in any databases I have access to. I discovered several of these signs for: Thunderbird, Mustang, Ford LTD, Fiesta, Fairmont & Granada. There is also a Pinto sign, but interestingly, it is located on the back of the Mustang Sign. All of these signs are double sided. On one side of all the signs, there is a year marker 1978 or 79, however, there is a smaller 1979 sign, that slips over the 1978, so you can change the year if you wanted to. All of the signs come with this extra piece. Excuse a few of these photos, the signs are very dusty & as of this post, haven't cleaned them all up yet. 352,751. That is the number of 1978 Ford Thunderbirds built during the 1978 model year. It represented 3.94 percent of the industry total for the year, which was a fantastic figure for a personal luxury car.

Signs are $85.00 apiece or two for $150.00, with free shipping for domestic U.S. residents. I guarantee the delivery of all my shipments. First come first serve. Paypal is my usual transaction source but money orders are acceptable for those who wish to use them. Feel free to email with any questions. I do have a few extra pictures of the Thunderbird sign, taken from different angles, if requested.

Thanks, I would love to hear if anyone else has these signs... They are an oddity, so I would love to learn any history about them.

I bought 4 last year at an estate sale of a Studebaker dealer and longtime auction hunter. They had all the Ford brands from 1978 also. I bought the Mustang and Thunderbird ones and also 2 extras just because I graduated in 1978. They were a typical advertisement in any Ford dealership.
