Item Details

  • Seller: vo152
  • Location: United Kingdom PH3 1RA
  • Lot #: M-0030321-DT

Available for auction is an incredibly rare and authentic 1980s Fiat Servizio garage sign. This remarkable sign, although no longer illuminated, still retains its captivating charm. Unfortunately, the original backing and internal electrics were not included when this sign was purchased by the seller's father.

The sign boasts vibrant colors that immediately catch the eye, showcasing its distinctiveness. While the seller believes this sign, along with others from the same era and style, may have been produced by Neon Modena, there are no stickers to confirm.

These signs were exclusive to the Italian market, making this particular piece even more exceptional. Sourced from the Florence region and previously owned by another private collector, this sign carries a unique history. Crafted from vacuum-formed plastic, the sign features embossed yellow edges that beautifully frame the piece. Despite being used outdoors, its condition is exceptional, with only minor surface scratches and no cracks or significant damage.

Measuring 39" x 20" with a depth of 2", this sign possesses an impressive size that commands attention. While currently lacking LED lighting and new backing, envisioning its full potential is simply awe-inspiring. Even in its current state, it radiates character and holds a special allure for Italian car enthusiasts and workshops.

Don't miss this opportunity to own a piece of Fiat's advertising history. The buyer is responsible for shipping, handling, and fees.

    I could do $700 including shipping as is. Kindly said, what happens if after 8 months your highest offer is $400 or $700 shipped? Do you plan on keeping the sign? Sincerely asked.

    @Pebblegreens Good morning, thank you for the offer. Unfortunately I can not commission the lighting and pay for the shipping as well for $800. I do sincerely appreciate your interest nonetheless and hopefully we can come to an arrangement in the future.

    Kind regards

    If I can pay you $800 USD including a quality metal sign box, bright LED lights, packing & shipping. I will buy & pay right away. This is for a plug-in & hang finished product. I believe that is a fair offer. I know the shipping hurts, but there is little we can do with that…… unless you know someone flying over near Allentown, Pennsylvania any time soon 😆😆

    @Pebblegreens I absolutely understand the points you mentioned.

    In terms of shipping, the crate will likely cost around $250 and the shipping cost with FedEx will be around $300. That being said, I do have some very strong boxes in storage that I feel will be sufficient for ensuring this reaches you safely. This will result in no crate being required and thus saving the additional cost of $250 approximately. Insurance of the item will come included as well.

    I also know a local company who would be happy to install the LED lighting. They are professional and they use excellent equipment and materials. I can always obtain a quote should this be of interest.

    Please think it over and if I can help further then I am always an email away.

    Kind regards

    With the cost to ship, have a proper sign box built, wire the sign for lighting, etc…….I have factored all these costs into my offer. I understand if you cannot accept. I appreciate the offer you sent me.

    @Pebblegreens Good morning and thank you for the offers and the comments.

    I can fully relate to the experiences of receiving damaged goods in the post. My Father lost countless items due to damage and some items were literally irreplaceable.

    I have sent secure crates on pallets and that definitely reduces any prospect of potential damage significantly. Sometimes it’s even more economical to do it this way especially if there is more that one item being transported.

    I do genuinely appreciate your offer on the sign but unfortunately it’s just not possible for me to let it go for this amount. I will send over a counter offer that I hope will be of interest.

    If you are decorating a garage then this very rare sign will certainly look wonderful on display.

    Kind regards

    I can offer $500 & I also have to pay for excellent packing & shipping to Allentown, Pennsylvania. I am decorating my garage & I have had so many different signs break in shipping. Quality, careful packing is required.

    As the final moments of the auction approaches, I just want to say a special thank you to @rsamerica for your bid and thank you to everyone for your questions and the interest shown.

    Kind regards

    Hello everyone and thank you for viewing this auction.

    I would first of all like to say a very special thank you to @rsamerica (nice to see you again and thank you for the other bid as well).

    Unfortunately I have a relative in hospital at the moment and an overload of commitments and I do sincerely apologize to everyone for my late introduction and for the lack of information regarding shipping.

    I just want to let everyone know that worldwide shipping of this sign is available.

    I have listed below an estimated cost of the shipping based on the dimensions:

    UK - £80
    Europe - €150
    U.S.A. - $210

    The price above is just an estimate and may vary slightly (possibly less and possibly a little more). I am always keen to make sure items are very well packaged and as a result the shipping estimation may change slightly.

    I always use UPS and each item is fully insured against damage or loss. Furthermore, I do not charge for the actual packaging of the items as I have an abundance of packaging material in storage. The only cost would be for the actual courier itself.

    If anyone has any questions please just let me know. Due to my current working and personal commitments and the time zone difference, there may be a slight delay in my response. However, I will always reply to any message as soon as I can.

    I want to thank everyone once again for the interest you have shown and I wish you all the very best of success in the auction.

    Kind regards
