That's interesting. Michelle Bianci sent me this message when I asked for a quote : "Our trucks aren’t that tall , pump would need to be under 102”. Also the origin would have to have the glass cylinder off and boxed/packaged for us at pick up." I'll give her a call this morning for clarification.
Thanks for the effort and time you put into this video . Boy so much nice stuff out there in the west . We get used to seeing so much rusty gold in Michigan it is nice to see so many things in such great condition .
We are so spoiled out here! I work on cars for a living and being able to work on rust free cars that are 20 or thirty years old is such a blessing!
Here's a link to a recent auction with some similar signs, although these signs had their frames and poles sold with them. There isn't a tremendous amount of value for the Ford signs because of the enormous size and limited ability to display. The more pictures of the different types of Ford signs you have, the better, as different styles might have different values. I'm actually looking for a replacement for my large "FORD" section, as a recent windstorm broke out that panel in my sign. Too bad your all the way out in North Dakota.
The "plastic-like" panels are made of a material called Lexan. The Standard oil sign would have more value if it wasn't so faded. "Plastic" or Lexan signs are growing in value, but are way behind the prices of porcelain signs, as a lot of collectors see little value in them or think of them as entry level. Also, with the Standard sign being so faded, it's unable to be restored. The flame section shown by itself probably has more value than the large sign pictured that it goes on.
The Champion spark plug cleaner you can find for sale at a large swap meet for $100-150.
