Gulf Oil Vintage Lighted Round 19" Die Cut Gas Station Pump Island Sign Original:
This is an original, authentic,NOS, Gulf Oil lighted sign. It is not an acrylic reproduction like the ones that have recently appeared on . This came out of a contractors warehouse where it has most likely been stored for the last 31 years. It was made to mount on the gas island canopy over the pumps. Most likely when the contractor went to use it, at that time, he found the bulb broken and just put the sign back up on the shelf and took a different one to use on that particular Gulf station. The case is all aluminum. There areno dents in the case and no cracks in the face. The letters on the face are embossed (raised). This sign measures 19" top to bottom and 21" across and 7" thick.It is the most sought after Gulf lighted sign because of it's small size. It doesn't take up much wall space in your collection to display it. It is single sided, 120 volt and can beplugged in to normal house current.This sign was made in 1982 as evidencedin photo #7 where it is stamped on the face. When I aquired this sign, the U-Bend bulb was broken inside the sign. As a result of the broken bulb banging around inside the sign, the shards of glass put a few pin point scratches on the inside of the face of the sign. This is the only thing that keeps this NOS sign from being called MINT. As you can see in the closeup photo of one section in the orange field, the scratches are sotiny and pin pointthat theydo not detract from the beauty of this glossy, minty sign. This sign is so new it doesn't even have finger prints on it. All the new owner will have to do is connect a cord and plug to the two short wires that protrude from the back, hang it up and plug it in.This is where I made my temporary electrical connection as shown in the photo. This sign can be mounted indoors or outside.The face is bright white as compared to most of these type signs that have yellowed through the years. This one has a nice glossy sign would look great hanging next to your old gas pump or your antique, classic or muscle car or even with your hot rod or truck. You can hang it in your garage, shop, game room, basement, man caveorfamilyroom. Pick up is OK. Sorry domestic shipping only.
