Sign has a very slight bow near the "C" (pictured) but is overall flat. Overall good gloss and color. GM closed the Oakland line at the end of 1931. The company maintained the Marque's name until April 1,1932 when the division was officially renamed Pontiac Motor Car Company.Thus Pontiac became the only G. Companion car to not only survive but flourish and become a leader in modern automobile manufacturing.
However there are no maker marks to date this sign. This is an extremely rare sign with a great presentation.
