Vintage C. 1980's Gas Station Lighted Cooper Tire Advertising Sign Large 3 Feet For Sale
Vintage c. 1980's Gas Station Lighted Cooper Tire Advertising Sign Large 3 Feet
New Old Stock (NOS) Cooper tire lighted advertising sign. I acquired this from the local filling station. I use the old school phrase, "Filling Station" because it really is a throwback to the 1960's when Gas Stations were called Filling Stations, or Service Stations, and actually were "full service" and Attendants pumped the gas for you, washed your windows, checked your oil and tire pressure. This is the only station that I know of in the Universe, that still does this. Still has the old timey rubber hoses that ding when you run over them to notify the attendant, in this case the actual owner, that a car has arrived for gas. This station also has bays where a mechanic actually repairs cars. The building has several metal advertising signs on the outside and inside of the walls. Somewhat of a landmark in our little town.
This lighted sign is an original, and the Owner of the Station believes he acquired it back in the 80's and thinks the box that it is in, is the original (box not show but sign comes in original box). In the lighted image side with Performance Radials, the line in the lower right corner is the power cord. The sign has never been hung, and is virtually new. It is a bit dirty, but will clean up nicely. I lit it and the colors are breathtakingly vibrant. The sign is surrouned by an aluminum metal frame and still has the original eyelets but only a fraction of the chain used to hang it remains. The chain is easily replaced. It will ship in it's original box, just as it shipped over 30 years ago.
CONDITION: Very good like new original condition. A little Service Station dirt, but will clean up nicely.
DIMENSIONS: 35" long, 3 1/2" wide, 11" tall.
