What are the measurements? There is one on ebay now asking $750 out of "India" measures 30 x 36. FYI

Mine has been in a buddies garage for over 25 years before I could get it Off him . Look at the letter font on the Indy one not quite right and as the man says letters off center on right side . People are getting better and better on these re pops but if you can touch it you can tell . On line is another issue.
