It's as fake as it gets, but they aren't being reproduced currently by any of the known sign manufacturers. The ones I carry are Cities Service, Phillips 66, Shell, & Skelly. I've not had Texaco's for at least 6-7 years.

Look at the word "Texaco" in the logo. The typeface is likely Franklin Gothic. I doubt this was used in the '40's.

Was this version of a Texaco sign ever a real sign at one time?

and where's the year numbers at on this "rare" sign"
lettering looks too modern as well.

Please put this on back at the "nostalgia store" with all the other repros.....

I DON'T THINK A PIECE LIKE THIS WAS EVER MADE IN ANY BRAND GASOLINE...THEREFORE IT'S REALLY A FANTASY PIECE NOT A REPOP, REPRO, ETC.

Well, I sent an email to the seller and invited to come to this site. Will keep you posted if I hear anything. Nothing wrong with repos or fantasy pieces, but please......

There is a very rare Texaco Airplane Motor Oil Sign out there, only one that i've ever seen, but i don't have a picture for you. As far as this sign, Too Funny, nothing like this that i know of was ever produced for Texaco.

I emailed the seller asking about the heritage of the sign? Got an email back, very angry person, told him about the site and that I can't find the sign on internet nor in my sign book. Will see what happens next. I know that I have seen this sign before on ebay just with different brand name. Will see if he contacts me again.

I've made a "best offer." We'll see what happens...

I offered $3.45 - beat that, Lance! Hah!


I would like to add that this is a historic occasion. It's the first time I've ever bid higher than Lance on something... Man, it feels good :P
