I have a few tin lithoed Gas Pump banks from a few Oil Company's.... I think I have them all(?) except a Billups Oil bank... But, I am not sure if I am correct?

Did any other Oil Company besides: Billups Oil, Atlantic Oil, Pure Oil, Sunoco and Sinclair Oil (Power X and HC) have such banks?

What I have so far, plus a Monstrously large Texaco Sky Chief "Regular" tin (possibly a fantasy pencil box or?????....



Any help will be greatly appreciated by me and possibly others who already own such banks or decide to start collecting them....

Thanks for the "heads up" on it, Randy... It is one that did not show up in my Searches.... And, one I don't remember seeing before, either...

Bob, Here are a few, don't know if you are interested in can banks or just the pump banks.

Thanks Barry! Right now, I've been looking at the Gas Pump Banks... I do have less than a handful of the "mini oil can" banks... But, I have noticed a variety of Brands in the banks that I had not seen before... I've also noticed the Fantasy and repop versions out there....

Well, I've been outbid on the Reliance Bank; so that didn't last long... LOL

But, thanks to Randy; I know that they are out there... Now to find one in my budget....

There is at least one Sinclair pump bank you don't have.

I have been under the impression that Sinclair had the "H-C" and "Power X" tin gas pump banks...

Wes,if you don't mind sharing? I and other Collectors would like to know how many gas pump shaped banks; Sinclair authorized as giveaways.... And possibly an image of them, if you have such an image?

I should have added that info in my first post...
The two you have are the most common. I have seen a picture of a third bank. I do not have the bank myself, but it is either a green pump bank with the Power X logo or a red pump with the HC logo. Possibly aa manufacturing error? I will see if I can find a picture of it.

Wes you are correct. I saw one on Ebay once and thought it was an error. I should have bought it. I think it was red with HC?


Drive with Care and Buy Sinclair!! I buy Sinclair globes, signs, cans, ect.

WOW... Now, that is another bank I've never seen... I wish I had the money to bid on it... If someone or someone's; on Oldgas place bids on it; I hope you win it!

Thanks for posting, Jay!
