    I don’t know. Based on the seller’s ebay-username (classiccarnsigns) I’d guess not.

    The aluminum housing is the biggest giveaway, it should be a black steel case that is sloped in the back. The color of the jeeps should both be red like the top and bottom border. The big jeep logo in the middle should be highlighted in red instead of white. Also if you take a look at the vehicle details you can tell how crude of a job they did.. there are rectangular parking lights on the cj5, two odd looking hood latches, there are 3 lug nuts not evenly spaced on the FC. Many other little things that would stand out if placed next to an original. Its still not a bad looking sign to have in your garage but the seller should be noting that it was made it to resemble an original. And for how hard the originals are to find its not surprising that someone is trying to reproduce them as the originals fetch a pretty penny.

    Thanks Matt.

    I do know that a few of these were made as giveaways at the FC Roundups. It could be one of those.

    Dave,
    This seller has been making these signs and selling them about once every couple months for about a year now. He also made the “Jeep Parts Service” sign a few times. I might have to attend the next Roundup I wouldn’t mind getting one as a giveaway!

    ahhh .. Good to know!

    2020 is the last year of the Roundup, so there’s not much time left. I can’t go this year, but going next year is a priority for me. I can’ guarantee signs will be given away, but there are usually good donations made of all kinds as part of the raffles.

    – Dave

    A friend that has an original sign bought a repro at Carlisle. The repro is OK but it is much smaller dimensionally than the original. He indicated that the seller had several of these that he claimed he made.
