Here is one, but I had to recreate the top lion. Love this sign, but now no where to hang it.

A little info on it... designed by W.C. James, who was head of the special effects department at Twentieth Century Pictures Studio. The truck was illuminated with 600 feet of neon tubing. Blue neon was used for the outline and side lettering. Gold neon for the radiator shell. Red neon for the cab lettering and the Red Lion and "Roar ..." slogan at the rear. Fifteen thousand volts was used to light it. Power was created by four generators mounted on the left side of the engine and driven from the fan belt.

Ran across this old thread from Dec. 2007 by Curt Cragg, some of the photos still on it.

http://www.oldgas.com/shoptalk/ubb/Forum4/HTML/002005.html

I am enjoying the photos in this current thread very much!

I thought everyone might also enjoy this look into photos that were posted a few years ago.

You guys are doing a great job and these photos are just awesome to look at. Please keep up the good work. If I had any old photos I'd add 'em myself. Thanks to all who have contributed thus far.
