John Bean Visualiner Alignment Cabinets

This photo of a unique styled Visualiner is from 1954 inside a GM dealership in New Zealand. A brand new Holden sits on the rack. This cabinet may be a very early model, or something that another company manufactured other than John Bean. I love the styling of the top Visualiner sign.

The company states that these beautiful Visualiner cabinets were released to market in 1947, however we found this ad below from their role out in September, 1946.

Fun fact: There were two different color emblems for the John Bean alignment units over the years. We do not yet have a concrete answer on what years possessed which versions.
