This is a vintage Aerocraft Boats Canoes light-up, advertising sign for a dealer or marine store window probably circa 50's or 60's.

It's 36 5/8" wide and 11" tall with a depth of 4" off the wall.

The old cord was professionally replaced with a new 9 foot long cord and a vintage new old stock Leviton snap switch was added to the cord for easy on off without having to unplug it.
The rubber grommet in the aluminum frame that the cord passes through is new as is the fluorescent light tube.

Condition: Very good. No cracks, repairs, or major issues. Displays well.
There's a bit of age related wear to the aluminum frame and some paint flakes missing and a few light rub marks but the paint is original and very tight.
I've tested it and left it on for four or five hours at a time and it works great. No flickering etc. It's a bit brighter than the photos show.

There's a couple of small metal swivel hangers attached to the bottom of the frame. I don't know what they were used for.

For hanging there's a lip on the inside of the aluminum frame and I'd put a couple of nails or screws (one on each end) in the wall and it'll be rock solid.
