Is this sign a reproduction? It measures 22 inches by 12 inches and is flanged. It had small pieces of old paper stuck to both sides but I used water and wax to clean them off. The sign does have small bumps through the center of the sign in the paint that makes it feel rough however around the edges it is smooth as it should be. Manufacturing error or repo??

I have seen some repro Koolmotor flanges out there but the ones i have seen are 24" x 12" with a 2 5/8 flange with only 3 holes in it. You may check on proxibid, there was one that sold a few years ago. Also there is a repro one with the truck and car.....red and cream.

the smaller/clearer pic look just like it. The bubbles on yours is from age, with the paper on it, I bet.

The repos. I have seen the mounting holes are in line if yours are staggered then it is right.
