Vintage Neon Evinrude Sign: Elto Outboard Motors Authorized Agency
This vintage neon Evinrude sign for Evinrude and Elto Outboard boat motors is an original advertisement that was manufactured in the 1930's. It measures 2 feet tall by 4 feet wide, and sits on a 5 inch deep metal can. It is a truly rare and unique advertising sign for boat fuel from this era. This authentic heavy tin litho advertisement features an Art Deco style graphic of a man driving a boat. It is just one of hundreds of original, collectible petroliana signs currently available from ArtFactory.com. It is a genuine, single sided tin litho sign. The rectangular sign is full color with a mostly red background on the top of the sign and blue water on the bottom of the sign. The sign has blue and white lettering and graphics, and reads "EVINRUDE & ELTO OUTBOARD MOTORS AUTHORIZED AGENCY". The outline of the lettering on the sign lights up in white neon. Like all of our collectible signs, it is sold in original, unrestored condition as pictured. We do not believe in restoring old signs because it is our belief that every ding, dent, and blemish is part of the story and history of the item. However, all electrical elements and neon have been fully rebuilt by our experts with solid state transformers, and an on/off pull chord as pictured.

Evinrude Outboard Motors History
In 1907, Evinrude founded Evinrude Motors in Milwaukee. The firm immediately began to develop its first outboard motor, a one-cylinder, 1.5 hp (1.1 kW) model, which became an instant success upon its introduction in 1909.
Because of Bessie's poor health, the Evinrudes sold their company in 1913, and Ole agreed to not re-enter the outboard motor business for five years. His inventive mind kept busy, however, and during his "retirement", he devised a much-improved, two-cylinder outboard engine. In 1921 he and Bessie formed the ELTO Outboard Motor Company (ELTO standing for Evinrude's Light Twin Outboard). This new outboard engine was also very successful, and in 1929 the ELTO company merged with the original Evinrude company (since renamed the Outboard Marine Corporation) and the Lockwood Motor Company, with Evinrude the president of this new company.
