Original Shell Oil Bottle Rack. Very rare and not too many have survived. Complete with 12 Shell Oil Bottles of various types just like the service station would of displayed. A few of the labels have worn off but most are intact. Working to clear out some of my collection for other items. This is the real deal and you don't find too much Shell Oil original items.
Great Polly Lubester in good condition. one small chip on the top of about 1/8" but otherwise great color and gloss, restored about 5 years ago. $650. Dimensions 53 H x 23 W x 10 deep. About 75 pounds so shipping costs would be about $150 unless you have another way that is less to get it to you. Ebay # 152920925527
I need a well-packed, fairly small box (probably about 20' x 20' x 16") transported from New York state to the Peotone Gas/Oil Meet March 10 or 11. The contents are fragile, so it would be great to have an Old Gas guy do this, rather than a carrier like FedEx Ground. Will compensate the person, of course. If you think this is a "maybe", I can be more specific about were in New York state the box is located. The person who currently has the box may be able to meet close to you, or at your place. Any help will be appreciated a great deal. Thanks. John
I have a Standard sign and pole and I'm missing a few details. What lights were used on these poles for sure? I see pics of them with 2 lights coming out from under the sign, they look to be 8" or 10", angled light shade, is that correct? I have the base of the Flame though its a bit beat up, does any one have the Base and OR the Flame?
I thought you guys would appreciate this story. I bought some stuff from a guy that was renovating a house built in 1923. He was tearing down a poorly built wall and found that is was partly made from this sign. We learned that ham and eggs was a political movement in the 30's here in California.
The mechanism that engages the hand reset "mode" is broken off and without that mechanism, I cannot make the gallon hands reset to zero. Attached are photos of the bracket. It has numerous rods with sprockets attached to it. If someone has a complete clockface mechanism, I would consider purchasing it. Not all 850 clock mechanisms were the same. My pump has the clock mechanism associated with pump serial numbers 369,972 - 499,999.
