I'm looking for two signs if anyone wants to sell one of theirs. One is a Sinclair H-C and the other is Texaco in red.

Gasoline Motor Oil or Gasoline Filling Station. Is there much of a price difference.

There is a price difference. I am sure someone on here has one. It's always helpful to put up a picture and size description on what you are looking for. What is your budget?

It all depends. Min. $300 for a "decent" sign" on the Texaco.

NOT SO SURE YOU'LL FIND A 42" SINCLAIR H-C. I BELIEVE 48" IS YOUR CLOSEST BET ON SIZE.

48" is ok on Sinclair. Didn't know what size they were made in. What do you consider decent?

That sounds like the ones on ebay for $750. If I can get one of those for $300. Its just going on the wall in the garage but, i'd like to get my money back on it if I sell later down the road.

Yea Doc, Your Right maybe rough would be in the $300 range. Decent would be a 6-7 on a scale of 1-10.



Paid $225 for this single sided.

I ACTUALLY HAVE BOTH SIGNS YOU ARE SEEKING, JUST NOT SURE I WANNA PART WITH THEM. PLUS THERE'S SHIPPING THEM....FLORIDA ISN'T EXACTLY CLOSE SO THAT PRETTY MUCH OFFERS CLOSURE.

GOOD LUCK IN YOUR SEARCH, SOMETHING WILL SHOW UP. IT'S ALL ABOUT BEING PATIENT!

How much would your signs cost if you did sell them? Just so I would have a reference.

That is a nice sign. It looks better than what I was thinking of for a c+ sign.

Hey Mike don't know if you've seen a recent post from Big Mac but sounds like he is selling out everything and he has/had a lot signs.

Good luck in your search.

The Sinclair HC signs were made in several different sizes, 72, 48 and 42 inchers, plus smaller ones.
