Excellent find, Jerome!

 

I know where one is hanging still, alongside a nice Wheelhorse sign, but the owner will not let it go for anything.  I even offered to pay for a new lighted business sign in trade for the pair.

Very cool! Im a sucker for dealer signs, especially when they have a name on them and some patina. A NOS sign just doesnt have the same appeal as yours!
