Cities Service sold tires and batteries 50's and 60's. I have one of the vertical signs and do remember handling them but don't know who was the mfg. Believe the ACME brand predated Cities Service accy line. Got some CS spark plugs also, believe mfg was Champion.

Ohio Oil Company was not known for selling Cooper tires as Cooper didn't adopt their Cooper branding until 1946 .... that was after Ohio Oil Co. became Marathon.

It was Marathon that was known for selling Cooper tires.

Okay Ohio Oil, I’ll edit it as per your instruction. You say the 1946 adopting of the Cooper branding was after Ohio Oil Co became Marathon, but didn’t Ohio Oil Co become the Marathon Oil Corp in ‘62? I know they adopted the Marathon trademark for their products and stations before ‘62, but I had thought they remained the Ohio Oil Co until the 60s?
