  1. This sign might be too long to ship economically. However, I can deliver it FREE of charge to the upcoming BCA national meet in Brookfield, WI. NOTE: Please disregard all of the reflections you see in the photos. These are not on the sign. This is a genuine 1971 BUICK RIVIERA dealership showroom sign. It features the slogan for the year: “The New Look of Riviera”. This sign was originally unframed, and designed to simply hang in the dealer's showroom or front window during new model introduction in the fall. It normally would have been discarded after that, meaning relatively few of these have survived over the years. When I purchased this original sign, I had it professionally framed and backed, so that it was protected, and more easily hung. This '71 RIVIERA dealer sign measures 71" long by 21-1/4" high. The added gray plastic frame and steel hanging supports were designed to be compliment the look of the original sign. There is now also a removable, clear plastic protector sheet (can't be seen) over the face of the original sign. This sign was used in a BUICK dealership back in the day. So, there are a few marks here and there, and a bit of fading in the red logo. So, don't expect an NOS piece. However, this hard-to-find sign still displays well. The price is $350, plus the shipping. Thanks for looking. John

  5. Note: I can delivery this sign FREE of charge to the BCA national meet in Brookfield, WI. This is a lighted BUICK Tri-Shield logo sign. It is a genuine BUICK dealership sign. of course. It's in good condition and displays well. This sign appears never to have been displayed outside. It was likely used inside the dealer’s showroom, as an interior advertising piece. It has a quality, three-dimensional construction.. This lighted BUICK sign is a good size for use in your man cave or shop. It measures 26” by 22”. t’s not overpowering in size, and it's not too heavy to easily mount. I believe this logo “look” was introduced by BUICK in the mid- to later-1980’s. The sign is illuminated from inside by cool, florescent lighting. It works well, and looks quite striking, when lit up.. Please disregard the reflections you see in the sign in the second photo. There are some smaller marks here and there on the front, that might be hard to see in the photos. Also, please note a few marks in the blue part of the logo. However, there isn't anything major, in my opinion, that detracts from the sign...especially once it's mounted on the wall. The price is $225, plus the shipping. Thanks for looking. John

  8. NOTE: I can deliver this item FREE of charge to the upcoming BCA national meet in Brookfield, WI. Think "Wildcat-powered", Gang. This is a good-sized, BUICK dealership advertising item that is reasonably hard to find. This 3-D Wildcat display was used in dealer showrooms from 1962 into the mid-to later-1960's. This piece is large, delivering excellent visual impact. "Kitty" measures 48" long by 18" high. The critter has a striking, three-dimensional look, as seen in the photos. But, since it's hollow, this unit isn't very heavy. There were two versions of this unique cat put out by Buick. One was the free-standing, wall-hanging cat, which is the unit I'm selling. The second version uses this same cat, but mounted on a wood-grained panel, with white plastic "BUICK WILDCAT" letters on it. These Buick showroom Wildcats, in either version, are seldom-seen these days. They are made of extruded plastic, and didn't survive all that well. I've had this one in my collection for over 25 years. The color on the one I'm selling is very good. The overall condition is also generally very good, with no cracking. However, PLEASE NOTE the minor damage to end of one front (lower) paw. I've included a close-up photo of this area. This is how I purchased this display many years ago. IF the new owner wants to repair the paw, I have researched a good way to do this, and will be happy to share this information with the new owner. Here's your chance to have the namesake of your Buick Wildcat or Wildcat-powered engine hanging on the wall of your man cave or garage. The price for this genuine Buick dealership wall-hanging Wildcat from the 1960's is $290. Shipping is additional. Thanks for taking the time to look and read! John

  10. NOTE: I can deliver this item FREE of charge to the upcoming BCA national meet in Brookfield, WI. This is a BUICK "Happy the Hawk" wall-hanging dealership display. It's very good quality, and good-sized. It measures 23-1/2" wide by 18-1/9" high. This display is a deep shadow box, which has a very striking three-dimensional design throughout. "Happy" is sculptured in appearance. The hawk and the "BUICK" lettering literally fly off the background. The unit is very well built. "Happy" was introduced as part of the Buick logo in 1975. He continued to fly into the later part of the 1980's....all the way through the larger Riviera and the Grand National days. This original Buick showroom advertising display is one I've had in my collection for years. Examples of this piece (in any condition) don't seem to come up for sale all that frequently. This one I'm selling is in very good condition. Good color, with no sun damage. Please DISREGARD the reflections in the clear lens on the front of this display. These are just from the lighting. The price is $275, plus the shipping. Thanks for looking.

  12. Perhaps this is something of interest to a screw-on hubcap collector who is just beginning a collection. I realize that's assuming a lot, with how our old car hobby has evolved (the aging process of many of the participants!). I have this decent screw-on hubcap available for a 1928 Buick Master for sale.. Not sure if it fits other years. Some scratches and dings, but seems very displayable. 3-15/16" outer diameter and 3-7/16" inside diameter. The price is $25, plus the shipping. Thanks for looking. John
