“Vintage AMC Jeep Dealership Sign 10ft X 2ft Good Color Displays Well No Reserve.

This sign is an original dealership piece. It has been repurposed. If you look closely at pictures you will notice older letters that once spelled out “Shafers Exxon PH 392-5646 Jeep”. Obviously it was used once as this advertisement but was repurposed to what you see now. As you can see it displays well either outside or inside. The photo of it on top of white table is backlit and displays good. It does not have a lightning element. I simply placed a flashlight behind it for photo. The ghost letters do appear in direct sunlight as shown by photos. Also the aluminum frame around the sign is in good condition but is missing an end cap on the left end. Please look closely at the pictures and if you need to see more please let me know. This is a rare one off for any Jeep sign collection!

As for the history, it came out of rural WV and was on display at a dealership near Rupert WV according to previous owner. I have attempted to do research on the phone number and dealership with no success. This is a local pickup only auction. Sign is located approximately six miles off of I-81 in SW Virginia. No reserve auction. Please do not ask me to end the auction for some ridiculous offer. If you’re that interested in the sign simply place your max bid and let the auction play out.”

    Having done some sign work myself, I understand the process & purpose of Re-purposing back lit signs. Having said that, removing old paint and lettering can be a time consuming job with lack luster results. What may look acceptable when done, quickly becomes somewhat dis-appointing when lit up with outlines of removed lettering showing through lighted sign. The only reason to do this is to save money, not make money.
