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.
