    Bendix brakes sign

    A good friend came across this bendix brakes sign on one of his picking trips... It will be coming home to my sign collection... It's a little rough but thought it was a pretty cool piece and studebaker interrelated. 25"x16"

    It appears to be either the top or the end of a shipping crate.

    I thought the same thing when I saw the post but it appears to be metal and awfully ornate for part of a crate. It could, However, be intended as a dual purpose item. Shipping crate and then advertising sign.

    Here's another example. https://thumbs.worthpoint.com/zoom/i...427155f034.jpg

    Dang nice sign.

    Thanks for finding that example! That one must have been never used....

    Huh...I wonder when Bendix brakes became so popular(?) on Studebakers that they felt the need to make this combo advertisement/shipping crate. Would make for good food for thought at least.

    Picked up a cleaner version this morning. I'll have the other sign up for sale that I originally posted if there is any interest.
