Any thoughts on this one would be appreciated.

Have an opportunity coming soon to pick it up but not sure what the value is with bad neon.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Steve

I'd say the neon is a fraction of the value on that sign. you already have the can.
Pretty sure the bottom link from above would be closer. maybe a little low? The one at 21.5K was part of the V8 sign which is smaller and more desirable. Plus i thought lots of that stuff sold at top end. JMO.

I see this FORD sign is two-sided, and with reasonably good porcelain. Since the can is included, I'm thinking this sign value (to me) is in the $8,000 to $10,000 range these days. Just my opinion, of course. I should note that I'm conservative by nature! By the way, I don't think the broken neon affects the value by all that much. That is expected by many collectors in a "as-found" neon sign. And, in my opinion, correctly repaired or replaced neon won't hurt the value much at some future point in time. After all, every sign collector wants these things to light up! Of course, a sign that was not originally punched for neon, but has been made into a neon sign is an entirely different story. Obviously, that's not the case here.

TWO guys had to think that first FORD sign at the Miller auction was worth the $20,000+ price. I realize what Jim is saying about the prices at the Miller auction being on the top end, and I feel the same way. However, how many times over the past five years or so, have we seen what seemed like high auction prices for these goodies become the new normal? In my mind, there's no doubt that high auction prices push prices up in general. Sure, we still might come upon a seller who doesn't know gas and oil things, or who hasn't kept up with prices over the past decade....but ask yourself, how often does that happen any more (compared to ten years ago)? John

Thanks to everyone who took the time to provide input on the value of the Ford Oval, appreciate the feedback.

Working on a deal that includes some pumps to go along with the sign so your feedback will help me with a starting point.

Wish me luck!

Steve

John, I was trying to say that the one that was 20k+ was the four foot version that accepts the v8 sign as well-not apple to apples. The other link was for a 6 foot painted tin sign. IMO your estimation is pretty good. Id say like 7-8 but im pretty cheap. Its a great sign Steve. Good Luck!

Hi, Jim....I appreciate your cordial comments above. Thanks for understanding that I wasn't taking a shot at you with my pricing thoughts. I respect your experience, and thought your analysis was very thorough. You're right about "apples-to-apples" comparisons being super important to setting values on this stuff that we love! Here's to an early Spring in your neck of the woods. More snow coming here in northern Wisconsin.

And, Steve, please let me echo Jim's wish for you: Good luck, as you work to bring this nifty FORD sign, and those pumps home! John
