About the time you think you saw it all. The info below is from the owner...
The Story behind the FANTASY gas pump is The Crypto Electric Co. Made their first gasoline pump. It was produced as a 4 way pump that could pump four different types of fuel. Their problem was that at night they didn't have a way of lighting up the clockface dials so they used candles!!! And here lies the problem!!!! The candles would ignite the fuel and a number of gas stations burned down. This FANTASY pump was taken out of service before it burned down. The Crypto electric company was bankrupt before they even got a chance. We that's all I have thought up on this. And I am sticking to it
I just acquired the original Marquette Battery Charger from our Union 76 station. Installed new cables and cord and it works good. Looking for a couple original 6 inch wheels and tires-- they are FIRESTONE tires and also need the plastic timer switch knob that has the pointer on it. It is a REDI-FAST charger Model BC 322N
Both are single sided porcelain, 1 x 12 feet. Good color and gloss but both have staining...I’ll leave the cleaning to the new owner. Obvious porcelain loss but no touch ups or repairs. Pickup in oil city pa 16301 or I can assist with crating for shipment. 2995. Or make offer
I just picked this from Missouri on a roundtrip from SC. The Corneli company I believe was bought out or closed in the 1960's. They were a supplier of seed to the midwest often found in the early 20th century. By the 1950's their main business was soybean and corn seed.
The sign itself is made of the very thin bright tin common to the 1930's-50's that had the dimples to make it flashy when hit by light.
This is a Montgomery Ward Auto Service Center “Tire” Sign from the 1960's. . This good condition, wall-hanging sign was designed to sell front end parts in the service center.
It has four different three-dimensional tires (plastic) to illustrate tire wear for the customer, and suggest the service and parts remedy needed. Very colorful, and good-sized. The sign measures 36” by 34-1/2”. I’ve never seen another one of these. I purchased it from off the wall at our local Montgomery Ward Auto Service Center, when they were going out of business in the late 1970’s. Of all the signs on display in my man cave, this is the one almost every visitor will go look at. Something about the 3-D tires draws them in. Go figure!
This never-used, vacuum-formed TRICO Winter Wipers sign is from the 1960’s. It’s in great condition, and is super colorful. It was manufactured with a three-dimensional look, so it’s very distinctive.
The sign is good-sized, measuring 20-1/2” high by 14” wide. It is designed to hang on the wall, although I have it taped to a display board at this time for easy transportation. The blue masking tape can easily be removed. I purchased this NOS sign from the basement of my friendly local old time auto parts store in the late 1970’s. It's in excellent condition. The price is $235, plus the shipping.
This is a very good condition, advertising thermometer from Hall Garage Corp. in Wausau, Wisconsin. This wooden thermometer promotes Dodge and Plymouth cars, as well as Dodge Job-Rated Trucks. I would date this piece to the late 1930's.
This thermometer works fine, and measures 10" high by 2-1/8" wide by 3/8" thick. It has the neat-looking metal shield, protecting the thermometer glass tube ball.
