Found this sign on marketplace.  I drove 4 hrs. round trip yesterday to pick it up.  I wife wanted to know what I wanted for Christmas and this is one thing that I showed her and she said "ok".  It was very dirty and I had to scrub the plastic with a scotch brite pad.  Everything works good.  It had a crack in the plastic but I was able to get the plastic to lay back down. I glued it and you can't hardly see it anymore.  Paid $40 which I thought was very good.  The ballast has a date of 1972 so I believe it's made about that time.

Thanks!

It's hard to find around here.  He had somebody 300 miles away that wanted it but the seller didn't want to ship it.  I don't blame him.  It's 3 ft. long x 18" x 10" .  That's not an easy size package to ship.

That cleaned up really nice IMO. I like the softer, older "yellowed" look much better than the bright white look. Very nice find, & a cool collectors piece.

Thanks!

I told my wife I was going to hang it in the kitchen so I could see it all of the time (I'm the cook in the family).  She said no!!!

I plenty of wall space in my shop so I guess it will go there. :)

Looks good - two clocks will keep you twice as busy when the power goes off and you try and resynchronize the hands.  Looks like right now one is a little later than the other.  :D

Yes it will!

They are an hour apart so I don't have to switch them for daylight saving. :)
