Welcome to Oldgas.

While most people don't get too excited about these Oil Dispensers, I kinda think that they are an un appreciated collectable. Though I'm not a Texaco guy, I would think that it would be a simple paint job, probably just red with a product decal. However... I, as well as a few other members, have been guilty of extreme colors & graphics, on these oil dispensers...

I would go with the old texaco green as the main body. And then everything else in the red.


Hunt long and hard the good stuff still out there.

Thanks for input guys Does anyone know if I'm guessing correct on date or what original paint scheme was.

Texaco never made pumps or oil dispensers,they refined oil. Your unit was made by OPECO. Probably made in the 1930s-1940s.
