I cannot find any proof that this “Chevron” sign was indeed of the (Standard Oil Company Of California) but i want to believe that it was.. Great Vintage Condition showing heavy signs of wear which is appropriate with the aging process such as nicks , chips , marks , scratches , rust , and 100% natural beautifully weathered patina which looks incredible!!! The red porcelain on this sign is in excellent condition with hardly any chips but the white porcelain in the letters and stripes is starting to deteriorate in a lot of areas which gives the sign such an amazing patina!!! The solid steel can is solid but it does have a lot of rust on the bottom and the can still retains all of the brackets for hanging which are still solid and sturdy. THE SIGN HAS BEEN FULLY RESTORED ON “BOTH” SIDED!!! I HAVE GUTTED THE ENTIRE SIGN AND THEN COMPLETELY WIRED THE OF THE CAN WITH 25′ FEET OF SILICONE 10kV GTO WIRE AND THEN INSTALLED A “PAIR” OF BRAND NEW 7.5kV ELECTRIC POWER SUPPLY TRANSFORMERS , 28 BRAND NEW GLASS SUPPORT BRACKETS , 12 BRAND NEW GLASS INSULATOR HOUSINGS AND ALL 6 OF THE BRAND NEW RED NEON MERCURY GAS LAMP TUBES WHICH ARE VERY BRIGHT FLOURESCENT RED AND NONE OF THE PHOTOS DON’T EVEN GIVE THE “TRUE COLOR” JUSTICE AT ALL!!
