Default Antique Ford Sign Value

I have a friend who has two antique ford dealer signs.
They are rectangular, 4' x 2' galvanized steel, The have
Ford (in script) authorized sales and service in the porcelain white letters
on one side. He says the signs were blue years ago when he a kid.
What would something like these be worth unrestored?

Thanks Jeff. We know the history of these signs. They were on the walls of a Ford Dealership that closed more than Fifty years ago.

They have a few screw holes around the edges where they were mounted on an outside wall.

The porcelein letters are in good condition, but the blue paint is gone on one of them and bad on the other.

If you follow the auctions you will notice that prices are all over the board. All I can say is that one could buy a lot of tacos for the value of your signs! I'm impressed.

Although not Ford, this one is valued at around $100. The small awwow signs are worth about $20 each, they belonged to my Father-in-law, so would never be sold. I need to get pic's loaded of my 1950's Texaco sign also. It is supposedly worth about $600. Most of the other signs I have are repops bought cheap. Rod
