A guy I know had this on his, and if I remember correctly, according to him, it was what was originally on the Texaco versions. Again my memory fades me, but I think this was an original stock banner on his.

“You can trust your car to the man who wears the star.”

Hope this helps.

...the ones I've seen had messages where the letters were just closely-spaced holes punched into an opaque 'ribbon'...

The original literature I have on them shows the punched tape. I’ve never seen that Texaco pump before and have been in on several discussions on these over the years. It might be a legit variation, who knows?

No, I’m sure you guys are right. I’m just going off of my memory, so I’m probably wrong smile

I remember him saying everything on top was original. Maybe he just meant the mechanics.

One of these days I’ll get back out to his place and see if I can confirm.

Thanks for clarifying guys,
Steve
