Can anyone offer advice as to whether this is a repop or not?

Thanks,
Clayton

Give us a measurement of the size and a picture of the back. This sign has been heavily reproduced, but in smaller sizes than original as far as I know.

OK thanks,
A non-collector friend of mine saw this today at a yard sale and sent me a photo, so I have not yet saw it. Hope to see it in the morning.

Given the fact that this may not last thru tomorrow, is there a size that I should look out for?

Without knowing anything else, I'd avoid any of these smaller than 42" because this design was used as the main outdoor identification sign for the dealership.

They are making 42" repops also. Here's a recent link and picture from an ebay sale (from India):

thanks for responses. The sign in question turned out to be 30" and an acknowledged repop by the seller.
