Not sure of the year. Anybody have any information on this style gas station? I found out about this station being for sale several years back. When I finally committed to buying it
it the price was lower to my surprise. I plan on restoring it in a couple years when I retire. I would like to make it a Sinclair station.

Neat station. How is it constructed. Can you post more pic's on close up details? Do you know anything about the history of it.
Thanks
Rick

Looks great Brian, but don't make us wait a couple of years to see it coming back to life!

The frame is constructed from angle iron. The roof is quite a neat configuration. The end windows tip in. I imagine to get some air flow. All the frame is salvageable. I was planning on replacing the sheetmetal since it is very close to what you find on metal barns. I purchased it in PA. Other than that I dont know much about it. I also kept all the old weathered wood that helped to support the walls from shifting.

The one I was looking at was a colonial Beacon station. Looked Exactly the same.
