In 1963 Signal Oil Company merged with the Garrett Corp. manufacture of missle components and other space age devices. This is where the design for the last oil cans came from. I don't have any of these cans in my collection. The colors of the can represented something also. Anyone know what they were????? Below is a picture of a spark plug that the company had. Ted

Hubba is right. Ted is doing a great job this month. Every COTM feature has been great. You guys have set the bar pretty high for those of us that will follow. For now lets continue to see more cool Signal stuff and learn more about the company.

Thanks for the kind words and Dick thanks for posting those cans. The symbol and color on the can is the one I was talking about. The symbol is space age and the colors???? Remember Sam Mosher and what he did originally. He raised avacados and oranges. Think they got the colors from that???? Rumor is yes. More items and pictures tonight. Ted

In 1965 Signal had closed it's retail gasoline business and was sold out to Enco out here on the west coast. Out of the gasoline business but not out of business. The space industry was where their efforts went. If you look at any FRAM oil filter you might see Signal Co. on it. Is it the same Signal Comapny that used to sell gasoline. I have been told it is. Believe it or not.
Below is a rare picture of the first Sign used for Signal Gas in 1931. Anyone who has this sign has a rare piece. Ted

I am stripping my Bennett and finding a series of Signal decals. The oldest one I can identify is a round bladk "Ethyl" logo with the yellow letters.
Heres the question: Under the round decal is a slightly larger white octagon with a red border. Is this a background for the Signal sticker? An older Signal decal? Or some unrelated previous owner?
