NOS tin AC delco GM thermometer. opened the box for the photos. some shelf wear as shown, and a glue drip where the thermometer was glued. I think this dates to the 1980s, but may be 1990s.

10x20 like the box says!

Original box included, will ship in another outer box.

$120 shipped.

Yesterday at 09:44 PM New Life for a Repurposed Sweney Sign... by BryceG

So this sign popped up local to me & the guy who found it is a picker/reseller. He was asking for information on it as it was a sign covered with paint on both sides but could make out the words because of the heavy shelving.

I called him, gave him the information I knew about the Sweney company, and he was appreciative enough to allow me to purchase it from him. It also helped that I told him I would buy it without any cleaning by him (which I am glad I did, cause he was just removing the paint dry with a scraper).

I spent a good portion of the day today cleaning off the old paint and giving it those fine detailed cleanings in certain areas. The sign came out stunning, the colors are so bold and bright - I just couldn't quite believe it.

As a Sweney collector, I'm completely thrilled to add it to my collection.

Yesterday at 08:42 PM 1938 WAYNE SALESMAN BROCHURE by Jack Sim

This type of brochure was small enough to be carried around by the salesman, in his back pocket. The pages flipped over showing all the products in the Wayne line for 1938. Notice, they were only making one model of visibles in 1938.
Approx. 4" x 7" and it has 50 pages. Each page has the picture of the pump (etc.) on one side and a description of the pump on the other side.
The following items are shown:
Gas pumps, 60, 60-S, 70, 876, 56, 65, 66, 60A, 866, 71, 50, 395 & the 615 visible.
Gas pump lights 585 & 586
Air compressors, 6 pages.
10 pages of oil & grease dispensers
4 pages showing the Wayne Car Washer
6 pages of accessories.

Every page is in excellent condition, even the covers are just a little dirty. Someone wrote a note on the inside of the front cover in pencil. The note appears to be an order for two 60s, one with Fire Chief and the other a Sky Chief.

Maybe it was used to sell the 60 you have.

$100.00 shipped ($2.00 per page for a 76 year old brochure).

I don't do PMs, first to post here, then email me at jhsim@petrocollect.com for payment details.

Yesterday at 08:14 PM Obscure Cal. Chevron Qt. can by Ragnova

I got this from a gentleman who bought a Hancock station in the late 50`s. Soon after purchasing the station he rebranded it Chevron. I`m assuming this may have been a generic brand he sold ? I`ve never seen another. No lid, crimp seam, scratches as seen in photos. $15 shipped U.S. only. For questions please pm. Thank you and have a good evening.

Yesterday at 06:22 PM Indian Pump Plates by vmc44

I recently was able to purchase 6 more Indian pump plates that are 8" x 12" from a lady whose husband was a collector but passed away 20 or 25 yrs. ago and is letting things go! Anyway she had 15 of them and they are dated 40 41 & 42 but there is 3 of them dated 1942 that are twice as thick as the signs dated 40 & 41 very heavy and flat while the others have a gentle curve to them because they are so thin, anyone seen this before or these dates? Also a photo of the back of a sign dated 3-41 that’s has a black imprint of the Indian logo as it must have been stacked on another one that wasn’t fired yet of dry? Thanks Dan

Yesterday at 03:56 PM To restore or not to restore? by bowserman

I got a call from my father in law yesterday. I figured it was just to chat, but instead he called to let me know a friend of his finally decided to let this pump go after having it the last eight years. I stopped at the guys shop and talked to him for a bit getting to know him. He told me he rescued this year's ago from going to the scrap yard and he has decided to let it go because he does not have time to work on it.

I know this is a very common pump, but one of the best original paint pumps I have ever owned. I have restored every pump I have ever owned. My dilemma is do I leave it or restore it. What would you do if it was your pump?? I know a pump is only original once. Sorry about the link to images my computer is down and only have my cell at this time.
