Here's a fake Chevy sign that needs reporting... I saw this at an auction online this past weekend and knew someone was going to get ripped off. Lets try keeping someone else from being the next victim...

i notified seller & he has asked for proof of my claim. I can tell by his other listings that he's not meaning to mislead. So I've pointed out the problem areas of the sign to him & given him a picture of an original... the ball is in his court now to do the right thing.

That's what I say too....I have no knowledge on Chevy Signs....but, man that sign looks good to me, so I need an education here........cause if I saw that sign for $500 at a swap meet, I'd break my hand getting the money out fast enough!

I will agree that the first one is a repop. But im not convinced the second one is a fake. The fact that it is double sided and about the right color and size make me think real. What do the rest of you think?

2nd one:

Are there known originals that only say 'Service'... all I have seen have 'Sales & Service'

Bow tie and lettering appears to be wrong size/aspect as originals I have seen.

If someone has an original that looks just like the 2nd one, please post a pic

Just talked to a collector through text messages. I stand corrected on the 2nd one, it's legit. Thanks to all those that spoke up and led to this learning for myself

The "Service" version is less common than the "Sales and Service", but definatly original..
