1950s Mercedes-Benz neon dealer sign
This huge original 5.2m / 17 foot long neon sign adorned the ‘Auto Engineering Inc.’ dealership in Lexington, MA USA from 1956 until some time in the 1970s. It was then removed from the outside and hung inside until they closed around 1988. This was purchased at a contents sale some years later.
Showing here is an image of it hanging outside the dealership in 1966 and another of an identical style sign above a different American Mercedes dealer in period (see the 300SL Roadster below it). The large heavy one piece sign is in very good condition with strong neon, and fully functioning.
- How awesome would this look over your 300SL Gullwing or other historic Benz?
