A wrapped can means it has a vinyl wrap on an old can. Means junk.

Paper wrapper on metal can.
The guy probably doesn't even know.

Was there ever such cans at all?? Or were all oil cans printed directly on the can?

I bought a qt from him and have yet to receive it, I saw this on another place as well. qt cans where designed in 1938 and the car is from the 20s. If essex was still around then it would have been that model year car not an old one.

The Essex was a brand of automobile produced by the Essex Motor Company between 1918 and 1922 and by Hudson Motor Company of Detroit, Michigan between 1922 and 1933.

Yikes, it's at 139.00 as of now. It will be interesting to see if he shuts it down. His description is vague at best.
