My favorite piece of Mopar advertising. It will be interesting to see how high this goes.

I like to follow them as well.
I bet there isn't 25 true originals left out there.
In his description he's really pimping it for the $$$.
I believe he may be off stating they were released for 68 model year.
... quite sure they were issued for the 1969 models.

Condition is every thing when it comes to big money for signs.
I don't see this one worth the money with all the damage it has.

I have no connection to the seller and I don’t think that sign is in too bad condition. It’s pretty common for them to have some stress cracks. They were pretty flimsy to start with. A lot of those flaws can be secured/improved with a little electrical tape. I think a little gentle cleaning will bring that one back to its former glory. Cool that it’s been with one owner so long.

I think Steve Juliano’s Sign may have been NOS. I’m pretty sure he told me he found it still in the box at one of the dealerships he went through.

Eric, I’m glad you still have that sign. They are awesome indeed! I can’t believe it’s been 7 years...

About 25 years ago Brad from Brads NOS had a new one in the wooden crate at Chryslers @ Carlisle.
It got a lot of attention.
Steven told me he already had an NOS one that he got from a dealership or he would have purchased it.
Price was $3000.00 firm back then`.
When I went home I just had to buy one I knew about from a dealership in Syracuse, NY.
I paid $900.00 which was a lot then but when I see it hanging today, I'm OK with it

The first time I saw an original Bee was at the Nats back in Indy (early 90s I guess). It was all kinds of beat up but had a big crowd around it. That became the motivation for my “Muscle Signs” Scat Pack Bee and Rapid Transit System lighted signs. Around that same time, one of the Mopar magazines did an article about Steve Juliano’s collection. I contacted Steve about my idea and remember being a little nervous about how he would react to doing reproductions. Even though he was a purist when it came to signs he was the nicest down-to-earth guy and super helpful.

Fast forward a few years, after I’d been selling my signs for a while, a guy came up to me at Carlisle and said he had an original Bee and would I like to see it. He was a local guy and had it in his truck, parked outside the fairgrounds. He told the classic story with a lot of memorabilia in that his dad worked at a dealership and brought it home for his young sons when the dealership was done with it. I am pretty sure I paid $1K for it. I had that sign for a number of years before another one popped up locally (on eBay). I was able to buy it because the seller didn’t want to ship. It had a similar history in that his dad brought it home back in the day. The sign had sat in his parent’s basement for years and at one point had gotten wet. I took a lot of careful work to bring it back. Here’s a pic of both signs right before I sold the one to Dr V. I have some other cool signs, but the Bee is my favorite by far.

Know of one here locally but the guy wants a lot for it. Interested in that sign but not sure how to handle shipping on something like that. Will be interesting to see what it goes for.

I doubt it would survive shipping.
