Alfa Romeo Dealer double side neon sign

Hello from Italy.

I own an Alfa Romeo neon double side dealer sign.

This version is from years 1980 and its conditions are really very good. Perfect.
No cracks or defects.
Diameter is 150 cm. (59 inches about).
Inside there are 5 working neons that illuminate it. All is original, no restore of any kind. Just a clean has been made.
Following few photos made when cleaning was just finished.

Shipping by a private courier will be assured and in a wooden box.
(Please consider some days for the packaging of the sign by a carpenter.)

Shipping is of course worldwide and PayPal or Bank Transfer are accepted.

Requested price is 3000 USD all costs included.
I'm open to all proposition too. Shipping in some countries may be less expensive than shipping in other countries so when making an offer please specify where you live.

Thanks so much for your attention.

Greetings to all.

I'm going to ask my HOA if I can hang this at the end of my driveway.

They have a lot of rules as to what we can do on our property. I looked it up in the rule book and I'm happy to say there is no rule concerning a 5ft round neon lighted Alfa Romao sign. Before committing to it though, I need to see if I have enough money in the bank to pay the lawyers.

Just kidding, I really love the community...

And I really love the sign but, sorry, no sale..

Red 1959 Spider Conrero Veloce 100,000 miles
sold 1966 ( I had no idea what I had there.)
Red 1967 Spider 100,000 miles sold 1974
Red 1987 Milano 100,000 miles sold 1994
Red 1969 Spider 109,000 Miles in the garage, Sold
Green 1978 Spider (arriving soon)

We need a law, one that says every male gets a 10 car garage on his 16th birthday so that when he is 60 years old he will never have to say "**** I wish I had never sold that car".
(No, I did not put those "****" up there the system did... )

Question: Do they really make Alfas in any other color then red?
Answer: Well they really do. I fell in love with a Green Spider on BAT.
I have not done over to the dark side, only the Green side.
It took me 50 years to see the light..

Love that sign, would look good on the corner of my garage, sigh, and no rules in my neighborhood.

I had a friend who did a beautiful job of painting a 6 ft dia Alfa emblem on the side of his garage. Really looked great.

Beautiful signs but are those really neon, or fluorescent tubes?

I got a 3 foot sign. Hang proudly in my pool room, with the other half hanging in the garage. Same as above, but better to fit the room!!

A beautiful sign, but what would it cost in packing to make the trip in one piece?!

Well, to be honest I'm not so sure but the right name should be fluorescent tubes.

Shipping the whole sign to the USA is almost 1000 USD due the weight and its size.
As written above shipping will be made in a custom wooden box to protect the sign from any possible damage.

Asked price of 3000 USD includes all shipping costs and insurance.

Sign will be provided already mounted or at least with all its original screws to mount it easily and fast.
(The decision of ship it mounted or unmounted depends on how safe is shipping the sign in a way or in the other way.)

Thanks.
