Original neon sign from the Reef Apartments in Wildwood NJ is a chevron-shaped circa 1960 vintage double-sided hanging neon swing sign. Hundreds of these once existed in the Wildwoods. This was acquired close to 20 yrs. Ago, the building still exists on the beach block of Leaming Ave. We have finally gotten around to redoing the neon on one side. We will also be at Wildwood Historical Society this week seeking a photo of the sign when it was on the building to post here. Colors are the original turquoise, pink, white& red. Looks like vinyls were added over some faded original hand painted letters in the late 1980’s, they were too faded to restore. The sign body is in very good shape and the transformers are original, secure and working. All the access panels and housings are intact and original. Sign has perfect aged patina, it has not been cleaned. We have the real stuff for the past 20 yrs. Sign measures 53″ long x 50″ high x 13 wide. It can still be hung by its brackets & angle iron or just will sit as is, ready to plug in. We can also restore the other side if desired.
