Vintage Car / Truck / Rat Rod Bus Semaphore Turn Signal Arm Fresno California:
I remember these from when I was a kid many years ago....a turn directional signal arm - a semaphore. Back in the days before electric turn signals. When we used our left arm up to signal a right turn, or straight out to signal a left turn. These metal arms do the same thing as an arm - they are operated by a cord that goes inside the cab - pull on the cord to position the metal arm where needed to show the turn direction. Lots of surface rust. All eight reflectors are present - some are scratched but they still seem to be in good shape.
From the pivot bolt to the tip of the arm measures 21 1/8 inches. The mounting bracket - the two most outer holes measures 10 5/8" center to center. The bracket face measures 1 7/8" wide.
The "SAFETY TRUCK SIGNAL" was manufactured by the Industrial Scientific Company of Fresno, California.
Would look great on that rat rod project.
Thanks for looking - check the photos and ask any questions before offerding as the SAFETY TRUCK SIGNAL is sold as is with no guarantee.
