This Packard neon dealer sign just posted on Ebay for sale,no reserve,starting at $800. Here is the auction text: Up for auction is an extremely rare piece of advertising and neon sign history. This is an Insco "Lit Writer" that allowed a business to interchange pre manufactured neon letters to say whatever the company wished to display and/or advertise. This company was only in business from the 1956 to 1959 period in Piqua, Ohio. (See following link to Piqua Ohio Public Library, which houses the company's documents:) http://www1.youseemore.com/piqua/contentpages.asp?loc=847 I am posting this for a friend whose father had a sign company near Lake Erie, in Pa., up to the 1970s. He had this sign in its original box, which comes with the auction! It is in MINT original condition! I was able to get with another sign collector who had bought several boxes of also new NOS letters for these signs, from a closed sign company in Michigan. Thus you are getting a BRAND NEW 1956-59 sign and BRAND NEW 1956-59 neon letters! I put the letters in the sign yesterday and turned it on, for the first time in the sign and letters lives. Both worked perfectly! You will probably NEVER get a chance like this again. Any company and or car dealership could have bought one of these for use in the late 1950s. Since Packard was in business until 1958, when it finally merged into American Motors, this sign is absolutely historically correct to display as an authentic Packard dealership sign! The box is 29 inches long, 3 1/2 inches wide, and 4 inches high. Weight is approx. 20 lbs. Sign will be shipped to you in its original cardboard shipping box! Neon letters will be shipped in a separate crush proof box. If a letter gets broken, doesn't work, etc. upon arrival, it will be replaced free of charge. Shipping for both boxes is an additional $45.00 dollars above the purchase price. We accept all forms of payment contact us. Sign will be shipped from Ocala, Fla.
