Friend of mine has been telling me for quite a while about this stick and he gave it to me today. It says Square tank Fordor sedan 10 gallon cowl tank . The Gilmore logo is on the top with the words Gasoline gauge. About 12 inches long and seems to be made of maybe bamboo or something. Anybody seen one like this ? Will get a picture on Wed.

The design is definitely unique from any I’ve ever seen but looks to be just a standard gas tank measuring stick. Were used to measure how much gas left in the tank before gas gauges were in the dash on Model Ts and such. Many were gas station giveaways.

Had never seen that type before and certainly not with the Gilmore logo or painted name on it.

Looking for Michelin items + NJ oil company related items (Mohawk, Guardian, Whiz, etc) + animal-related petroliana + Gargoyle/Shell/Sinclair items
