Bought these neat posters from a local former AC dealership auction about 2 years ago. Everything was selling hot at the sale but was fortunate enough to buy these posters to have something to remember the dealership by. It is 3 posters the first of which is double sided.

Sadly I have yet to actually get them displayed. They're odd sized posters and I would like to get them framed without breaking the bank.

Take them to Costco and get them laminated. They will be protected and it's much cheaper than framing. I had a large steam locomotive picture done for my Dad's Christmas present a few years ago. Since he passed I now have it in my shop.

Thanks Dave , I came along rite at the end of the steam era, so excursions are about all I've gotten to see.

Tom like your posters just to bad they don't have the dealers name on them, Just my $.02

Tom, I think I have said these same words, verbatum.  I have probably half a dozen larger, odd size posters, early window decals, etc to display, but just haven't gotten that done.

Nice; will look good in your shop.

If you are going to put them in a shop definitely laminate, if not put in a sealed frame. A digital sign shop can do that for you. If custom framing is too expensive an option, you can use the white vinyl trim for lattice to make a frame and sheets of coroplast behind the poster to stiffen the poster.

Only dealer sale I remembered in recent history from that area other than Wonsidlers.

Thought about making the drive from Missouri to PA for that one. Still have all the pics from the listing saved.
