This is an internally lighted Ford Service sign that came from Solberg Motor Company in Lakota, North Dakota. When Ford started requiring their dealershiips to modernize their buildings, they were simply too small to rebuild and chose to close the doors instead. The owner had saved a few small pieces of memorabilia, and this is one of them. It is approximately 3 feet long and 12 inches high and about 11 inches wide. This is a two sided sign that is lit internally with florescent bulbs. I put new bulbs in the sign and it works perfectly! This sign is in 9+ condition and is stamped as copyrighted by the Ford Motor Company.
I would prefer not to ship this sign because of the fragile nature of the bulbs and faces.
Price is $750 and I can deliver it to Iowa Gas.

Kevin--It doesn't get any better than this, as far as lighted signs go!
There is the history behind it, and the sign itself is PRIMO!
I am surprised it hasn't sold yet!
If it doesn't sell here on Old Gas, I intend to hand it on the wall in my shop!
