New Hamburg, Ontario, Canada, October 26, 2022 — A single-family owned 1966 Ford Ranger 250 Custom Cab “Camper Special” pick-up truck with Avion camper, and a United Motors Service single-sided porcelain neon sign, are both expected to do well in Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd.’s online-only Petroliana & Advertising auction slated for Saturday, October 29th.
The 381-lot auction, beginning promptly at 9 am Eastern time, will feature petroliana (gas station memorabilia), advertising signs, advertising tins, breweriana (beer and wine collectibles), general store items, jukeboxes, vintage and antique toys and more. There will be no in-person event to attend, but bidders can tune in to the live webcast on auction day to watch lots close in real time.
The 1966 Ford Ranger camper pickup truck was purchased for hunting trips once a year, which explains in part why the odometer reads just 39,966 actual miles. The side-style vehicle boasts parchment cab and trim, and has 100 percent of its original Sahara beige paint. It’s powered by an 8-cylinder, 352ci engine and cruise-o-matic transmission, and should bring $35,000-$40,000.
All estimates quoted in this report are in Canadian dollars.
The American-made United Motors Service single-sided porcelain neon sign is from the 1930s. It has the original neon, insulators, transformer and can, has never been apart and retains the original orange paint over the screw heads. This small sign was designed to be hung in a window or displayed on a countertop. It has an estimate of $20,000-$25,000.
