Any Gulf experts know what sizes the Gulf Dealer signs were made in (the ones that actually say "dealer" on them). I know there is a 66" version. I am wondering if there is a 42" or 48" version. The only 42" and 48" I've seen were fake ones from India. If anyone knows if they made a real 42 or 48" please let me know.
I am dealing with a guy who has one. I want to make sure it is real. Or maybe it's just a 66". It's high on a wall and he just guessed at the diameter.
Thank you all, Steve

I would echo what Mark said about this. I do remember several of the 42" (light blue shade) signs still being in use when the logo changed in 1963. Older signs were replaced gradually, as late as 1966 for several. I have never seen any striped dropshade Gulf Dealer sign in any size other than 66", but there are several versions with and without borders, outlined dropshade, etc. That said, remember at PCM we have enough discoveries every month to fill up a column called "Discoveries." We have no idea what is out there, waiting to be found.
