I have a set of the Fire Chief and Sky Chief. They had sticky tape on the bottom and they were set on the pump. This was during the time when they had a program for blending their gas for the local area. These would have gone on pumps without globes. Note, your sign has the localized number for the area and my Fire chief signs do not. I only have ones with the number on the Sky Chief signs.
Professionally restored Wayne 60 with an 866 clock face dial kit installed. The motor and pump mechanism has been removed to save weight. Has been displayed inside since completion. Paint is to show car specifications. It has been color sanded and buffed. The hose is the premium white cloth covered type. The globe lens holder is steel not plastic.Pick up or buyer arranges shipping. Check uship.com for reasonable rates on "blanket shipping ".

I have never heard of porcelain chalking, but it frequently happens to paint. I had a painted goodyear sign that chalked. I cleaned with soap and water until my sponge showed no sign of chalk, then cleaned with a degreaser and followed that with a clear coat.
After four or five years of day-dreaming and talking about building a backyard gas station to house all the petroliana that I have accumulated over some fifty years, I realized that I had better get down to business since I am not getting any younger! I have a 40x60 building in which I currently store most of it along with a few old cars. My first thought was to erect two non load bearing walls in one corner of my building and have an indoor gas station in the 15x15 area that I use for an office.
Then I realized that an outdoor gas station would free up enough space in my 40x60 that I could possibly actually work on a car and move around a lot more easily. Not only that, I already had a cement slab nearby that once supported a one car garage that we tore down when we first purchased the property. I bit the bullet earlier this month and purchased a pre-built "cabin" that I really liked. It is 14x24, 4' of which is a covered porch on the front end. So, my plan is to finish off the inside and then transfer most of what is in my 15x15 office into what is a 14x20 space.
I was so excited when the structure was delivered that I could not sleep that night. I don't have a plan on paper yet, but the layout is etched in my brain. I will post before and after pics as soon as I have it finished. My personal goal is to have everything done before the first snow. Wish me luck!
Yesterday afternoon I took a break on the deck and as I was sitting there a dragon fly landed on my leg. What was cool it just sat there for about 5 minutes. It let me take this pic then flew away. I can't recall ever having this happen to me. Maybe it will show up this afternoon, we'll see.
