Long way from Portland Oregon, but that was our business of Hand deconstruction. These would be very easy to do and store in a container. In fact a ABF upack would hold both. Biggest draw back would be the Roof on the flat building if there was asbestos in it. Older hot tar roofs were notorious for that.
Just unbolt this and store.

Great news! Oldgas.com member, Ben Eckart of Kansas, is in the process of bringing this classic gas station home from Ohio.

This is GREAT news! I was hoping the buildings could be saved and glad to hear they are. It would have been a heck of a shame if they were demolished.

Wanted to give everyone an update on this. After negotiations I was able to secure ownership of these two buildings. Then with the help of Lee Hoover we spent the last week and a half in Delaware, Ohio dismantling them and hauling home. The lubritorium will be rebuilt at Lees place and station will be rebuilt at my place.

Did you uncover anything hidden that had fallen in a crack?
