  • 2 RARE Studebaker Signs I found!

    Hello Everyone!
    I live 15 miles from the old Studebaker testing ground.
    Well I went to look at a gun cabinet a guy advertised for sale.
    When I walked in his garage he had an Avanti and these 2 signs hanging on his garage wall!
    I looked at his gun cabinets and passed because they were newer fiberboard...
    I then asked what he needed for the signs...
    He said he'd have to ask his wife??? hahaha
    I then asked what he paid for them and he said he'd have to ask his wife BUT he thought $200...
    I asked if $1000 would buy them and AGAIN he said let me ask my wife??? So I said Listen Sir.....
    It's Christmas and all....I'll give you your Original 200 Back that you paid for the signs, PLUS I'll give you $1000 on top of that for a total of $1200 BUT ONLY on 1 condition!!!!
    The guy stopped and paused.....and said What condition is that????
    I said YOU DON'T ASK YOUR WIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!
    He laughed his butt off for a few minutes then said SOLD!!!!
    Here they are guys!!!
    Enjoy!!! Cause it's a true story!

              How does one know if you are looking at an authentic original sign or a recently made reproduction? Are there any special markings to look for?

                Those look real to me. That porcelain finish would be very hard to duplicate. The round one has a chip in it, which looks the same as other chipped signs I've seen.

                The early Authorized Service sign has to be the nicest one I've ever seen. Even at $1200, I think you could sell them both and at least double your money.

                  Thanks for the replies!
                  Yes they are definately real!
                  The sign is marked by the maker! Here is a closeup!

                  And the 4 for diameter is in it's original hanging bracket....
                  Lastly I found the sign in the priceguide from 2005! Books 6,000

                  I agree this is the nicest one I've EVER seen also. There is one on ebay for 4500 with bullet holes!
                  It's large at 4 foot wide X 30 inches tall
                  Thanks Again!!!

                          Yes I seen the one on ebay with bullet hole for 4500...
                          I called the gentleman this morning to see if he wants to sell the Avanti? He will decide after the first of the year he said??? He bought the avanti new as he is the original owner...

                            Wow. That didn't take long Tom.

                            I see you have the top sign for sale on Craigslist for $9999.00.
