Here is an original cast metal “topper” equipment sign from the Manbee Equipment Division of Bear Automotive. Original condition with most of the original paint but it could easily be stripped and re-painted if you’d rather. It's an unusual piece and really solid.

I took this off of a vintage headlight tester made by Bear through their Manbee division – number M 555, serial number M1220 – probably in the 40’s or 50’s. I no longer have the tester. This "topper' measures 11 inches x 6.5 inches and weighs 2.25 pounds. The outer edging is a full 1/4" thick. "M-531" is cast into the back of the piece. Over the years the metal has warped a bit, both top to bottom and side to side, but that won't affect displaying it and doesn't detract from it. You are buying ONLY the topper, not any other part (or the whole of) the headlight tester.

I have other automotive, bicycle and motorcycle items for sale
