Keep an eye on ebay. Dealership stuff shows up there all the time. You could also try contacting the local historical society in those areas. They may know someone local who collects such items and may have extras that they would consider selling.

I agree with Randy...and would also suggest etsy.

And, this is the voice of experience talking...be patient. I wanted dealer license plate frames from the original selling dealer of my Cougar, Marin Bay Lincoln Mercury in San Rafael, CA, and it took me a good 15 years of solid looking to find them. And once I did (NOS including a paper plate, what a bonus!) at a swap meet, they now seem to show up on eBay on a regular basis.

Good luck!

It is an online marketplace where you can set up your own store.

But it is mostly for handmade, antique, artsy-craftsy types of items.

Here is a link to my Etsy store, where I mostly sell the vintage costume jewelry that my mother collected and left me.

Thanks for the additional information Phillip. I see your mother also collected GTE posters.

Any chance you can change the car on the poster from red to blue? Just kidding.
