Vintage 1950s Goodyear Tires Gas Oil Station Enamel Metal Sign - Oval 28 Inches:
VINTAGE 1950s GOODYEAR TIRES GAS OIL STATION ENAMEL METAL SIGN - OVAL 28 INCHES
This is a nice old Goodyear Tires gas station sign in nice condition. I don't think that this is a very common shape for a vintage Goodyear sign - I was not able to find another oval shaped one like this on completed sales - most of the others are rectangular or diamond shaped. This one measures 28 inches wide by 20 inches tall. It does have a gun shot mark on the “Tires” text and there are some chips along the edges particularly along the holes for hanging the sign. Other than that this sign is in very good condition for its age with nice colors with little fading.
I am not exactly sure how old this sign is. My Dad picked it up at a flea market in Maybrook, NY back in the 1980s and he had it up in his attic until now. But judging from the look of the sign I think it is from around the 1950s.
