Yes the old Dodge / Chrysler / Plymouth dealership in Burlingame.

Lots of history there for sure. It was Lithia Dodge at the end of it's life if i remember correctly.

Great Score on the sign !!! I recall a buddy of mine in Montana, with the local dealership changing signage, and my buddy being a mopar nut, offered to buy the sign . . . they said no, it had to be destroyed and the dealership had someone take it to the dump (of course that person mentioned this to my buddy, who happened to be at the dump at the same time . . . ) . . . just cause it is on the internet, doesn't mean the same as physical paperwork!!! Wish there was space to save it all . . . .

Reminds me of when BP sold our shops.The morons that took over scraped probally 100K in new parts that was in inventory in just our 4 shops.We had like 100 at the time in different states.They took it all out of boxes so no one could tell what it fit and in the dumpster.Not even scrap.Then when they closed the shop the had a moron come in to get equipment.He scraped tens on thousands in stuff.Rocky

I have a collection of signs, but none from a Chrysler dealership. Excellent score!

IS there a chance you could post a full, straight head-on picture and give the measurements so I could blow up the pic and make a full size copy!?

Those were the only ones i had time to take unfortunately. Here is the clearest one. I had to reduce the size of the photo to fit on here. If you PM me your e-mail i can send the full size version.

congrats on the sign.

sounds like their were some lazy people involved closing this dealership. when they sold the chevy dealership where i worked to developers the owners took about 3 extra months and sold and removed almost everything inside of the dealership before the new owners got the property. the new owners thanked them because they wouldn't have to deal with all the little stuff before knocking the building down.
i mean they sold almost everything, every door and window was removed even the 15' tall showroom glass was carefully removed, all of the florescent lights, all of the wiring inside the building and even the ceramic tile on the showroom floor.

When we gave up the franchise in early '81 at 31-63436 Chrysler INSISTED that the signage was their property and had a sign company come and remove the panels and post, somewhere I have pics of it being taken down.

T'was a sad day for me ...
