I wonder if other companies did this? Cool book for the shell collector.

Scott, Yes, many companies that had retail locations had these types of books and they have a lot of good reference information in them.

I haven't seen that " contains lead" sign that is listed in the book before. Was it just used on the trucks?

I have one for UNION 76 that shows how to paint the station, shop equipment and the pumps.

I have a couple different spec books for Mobil stations as well, showing where to place signage on buildings, approved color schemes for stations, etc. They are great references if someone wants to be 100% accurate in the restoration of a station particularly.

I was recently given a Dixie Distributors Inc. binder cover, but unfortunately the internals were all discarded many years ago and it was re-purposed for something else. frown It says on the cover "Standard Painting Specifications Trucks - Stations - Pumps". It would have been a goldmine of information for Dixie Oil Company of Michigan collectors.
