  • Studebaker Signs

    Thought I would post my latest Studebaker sign. It is a reproduction that is double sided and hangs against a wall. It is in like new condition.



    I purchased this sign a few years back. It is also doubled sided and hangs horizontal.



    Let's see your signs! Mike

    Just make sure you mount them up high enough where you won't hit your head on them and take a divot out of your scalp

      A new Year's goal of mine is to learn how to post pix on this NG. When I do, will show the blue-white-red, round, porcelan dealer sign on my garage since tghe late 1980s. It is about 42" in diameter, with brass eye-lets to hang it. It originally came from a dealer in Leitchfield, KY about 40 miles from here.

        Not a repro and not "like new" condition.

                    I have one of those 42" porcelain "Authorized Studebaker Service" signs that needs a new home. Not cheap.



                    All of these except the big plastic one have been sold.

                    I'd almost bet it was for the watch.

                        Here is a reproduction of the wood letters used above the parts department of many Studebaker dealers in the '40s and '50s. The large letters are about 6 inches tall. Usually, the "GENUINE PARTS" and "APPROVED ACCESSORIES" were placed on either side of STUDEBAKER, so that the sign stretched about 14 ft. I have sets of these available.
                        See http://www.studegarage.com/images/ot...sign_flyer.pdf for details.

                          I believe the sign dates back to wagons and buggies.
