This is an authentic, vintage Firestone Tires porcelain sign from the 1960's. It is an extra large sign that is 7 and a half feet long. It is in original unrestored condition and has some wear, especially around the outer edges of the sign as pictured, but overall is in excellent condition for a sign that is over 50-years-old. We believe in keeping all vintage signs unrestored because every ding, dent, and in some cases bullet hole is part of the story and history of the collectible.

The serial number for the sign is in small red lettering in the lower left corner, and the maker's mark and date are in the lower right corner.
