        I bought one off eBay last year for $100. Dan told me be was asking $400 each, and did sell both Saturday. No idea what he ended up taking for them. It's interesting that they said "$2.50" on them, which is the price they were originally selling for way-back-when.

        I wonder if this is one of those?

          Bam , I think he'd dropped his price to $300 on saturday . I wanted to buy the small print off him but he said that one went with the last big one he sold .

            I am looking to purchase one of these for a reasonable price if anyone is looking to sell one.

              Does anyone know of any other billboard art that's survived? We've seen a number of these '64 editions. Surely there must've been other years or other signs.

              1957 Transtar 1/2ton
              1963 Cruiser
              1960 Larkvertible V8

              1953 Commander coupe
              1957 President two door

              No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.

                Define "reasonable".

                There's a firm in Oregon that sells old billboards, they were profiled last year in Hemmings, IIRC they wanted $2000+ for most of their car ads with pictures of cars on them. And were asking $2200 for a neat 53 Studebaker coupe billboard.
                Seemed a bit too expensive for me ...especially if they got them for next to nothing.

                What's better, sell a couple at a high price or sell a bunch at a couple hundred each? I guess that's why I'm not a businessman.

                  While Leonard's display is impressive and the sign is better than GREAT, my choice would be to save the whole thing, complete with all the lettering. The problem is the 40 feet is not too hard to deal with, but the 20 feet TALL is!

                  It would take a huge Shop, pole building etc. to install it in, mine is only 14 ft. at the low end of the peak of the barn style roof.

                      Ya beat me to the answer. Ah well, just like the swapmeet buy, this is what happens when you lollygag on an answer [)]. I should add though, that Michelangelo didn't limit himself to doing the walls either.

                      Even better, do what some of the guy my age use to do with, um, an attractive poster. Tape it on the ceiling over the bed.... [}]

                            Jboyle,
                            Was there a web address with the article for the '53 billboard you mentioned above?

                              I have two of the billboards. I used parts of both of them, because several of the pieces ripped as I was pasting them. I still have parts.
