I've never seen a Studebaker sign like this http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-1940s-Studebaker-Car-Porcelain-Metal-Gas-Oil-Sign-No-Reserve-/150826476968?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item231df565a8
Have you?

Looks like a Safeway grocery store sign to me.

That's because it has nothing to do with Studebaker...other that the letter "S".
Just like all the hundreds of Stant gas cap Ebay ads.....

What Jeff said, but I have seen that somewhere just recently (again, not Studebaker-related). If I think of it, I'll edit my post. BP

Yes, that's a Safeway ceramic from the 50s or 60s. They used to bolt them to the front of grocery carts.

That particular sign has been listed before, always as a Studebaker item.
I email the seller each time, and tell him it's a Safeway sign.
He never listens.

Well, its got bids and there is no reserve mentioned, so somebody is going to own it. My brother and I were discussing that Safeway sign a few days ago.
