You may remember this topic from "Skyhawk", and this picture:

Thanks!

I was hoping for the overall dimensions - and look at Dennis' reply!
Dennis wrote:Hi Dan,

The dimensions of the banner are as follows:

Banner overall length 41"
Banner overall width 11 1/2"
Blue Field width 6 1/8"
Yellow Field width 5 1/4"
Large Red letters 3 3/8"
Small Red letters 1 1/4"
Large White letters 4 7/8"
Small White letters 1 1/2"
'59 5 1/2" long, located 10 1/2" from right side
PLYMOUTH on blue field 27" long, located 2 3/8" from left side
Three "dots" 3/4" tall, located equidistant between NEW and '59.
"THE" (before NEW) Located 2 1/2" from left side in yellow field
"IS" Located 5" from right side, at top of "S"
"HERE!" Located 2" from right side, at top of exclamation point

"THE" and "IS HERE!" angled 10 degrees top right
Straps 23" long. They have sewn-on labels indicating their original intended
use was as a military combat tourniquet.
I'm including a photo of the banner. Hope this is of some help. Dennis

Is that comprehensive, or what?! Now, all we need is a graphic artist. Hey! Wouldn't it be cool if at the 60th Anniversary photo shoot in Carlisle, every '59 windshield was sporting one of these?!

One of my employees does banners and such as a side job, Let me see if he can reproduce it from the picture we have and the dimensions given...I fact I am having him do a banner for me that is a copy of the front cover of the Canadian 59 Plymouths Owners manual. It was going to be a surprise but I can never keep a secret.

I will take a picture of what I mean.

Here is the Canadian Owners manual that I am going to make into a banner for the 2019 60th Anniversary Carlisle Extravaganza!
