March 1957 French-Canadian Ad for the FC-150 + Sign

UPDATE: Todd shared a sign that matches the Jeep sign which appears in the lower part of the ad at the bottom of this post. I’ve not seen one quite like this, so I imagine it was only available in Canada?

The sign was double sided, but he separated the halves so he could hang them on the wall. Here are some pics:

This is the back of the sign. It was made by Tek, a company still in business in Canada.



This March 1957 ad in an unknown magazine highlighted the FC-150 distributers.

    I have the original dealership sign as pictured in this ad. It came out of Quebec and was manufactured by a sign company in Toronto that has since moved to Brantford, Ontario (TEK Signs). I can post photos if you wish.

    Thank you, Craig. Yes it is a very nice piece of Jeep history indeed.
    I have been collecting mostly AMC era Jeep signs and displays now for several years and thanks to a friend was told about this sign being available for purchase. When I saw it I had to have it. This one is likely my favourite of all my dealer signs.
