I have recently come to own a mobile oil gargoyle cabinet. It has two gargoyle signs on the outside and the chart on the inside. The cabinet is stamped vacuum oil company New York, ny pat pend. on the bottom faces It is missing the Peaked top and the globe. It has three shelves and to clipboard clamps. The signs are all in pretty great condition the cabinet itself is fully restorable I think. Just looking for some info on it. Also should I clean it or leave as is for someone else? the chart on the inside of the cabinet looks to have been painted over with house paint but it comes off with soap and water. I'll post again with a couple more pictures

Looks like The top of the cabinet is not there. The money appears to be in the signs. People sign up on oldgas to get values from the guys on here and then are never heard from again. That being said, The sign pictured, IMO, is in the 600.00-700.00 range(Retail).

Thank you for the response! I have done a little research online and knew the top and globe were missing. I was also looking for some pointers on how to clean the chart up on the inside and the rest of the cabinet without damaging. Eventually I would like to find a home for it but that was not my sole purpose for joining. My husband and I do a lot of property clean up when we are home and run across a bunch of different things many of which are oil and gas related. I joined because I thought this would be a good learning reference.

Years ago someone reproduced the chart, I had a few of them but they are gone. Perhaps someone here on OG can remember who reproed them.
