Merkur Dealer Sign for Auction, Alberta, CA - 4/14/2018

Post by MarkM » Thu Apr 12, 2018 11:02 pm

I received an email from an auction house that has a Merkur dealership sign up for auction in Wainwright, Alberta, Canada. You can see the listing for it here: http://www.icollector.com/MERKUR-Ford-S ... _i29849401

I think you can bid online or in person. Here's the email, but the link below goes to the entire catalog and not the entry for the sign.
This is just a courtesy email to let you or your members know that we have a MERKUR Ford Sign (48" x 20-1/2") selling by Public Auction in Wainwright, AB, Canada this Saturday April 14th 2018.

The Auction will be made available to online bidders later today at this link:

Pretty cool.
I think about getting one from time to time.
Then I come to my senses and only buy things that I can take to car shows in my XR, which serves as a rolling Merkur showroom.

According to the catalog entry linked to above, it sold for $700 CAD, plus another $105 buyer's premium. Or $638.29 USD total at the current exchange rate. That's a lot higher than I was expecting.
