When were these used? I've found lots of info on the red and white crowns, but little on the gold ones. Any/all info would be greatly appreciated. I picked up a NOS one recently and would like to encorporate it into a pump restoration. Would Standard Oil be correct with this crown?

Thanks! smile

1952-1961, if my memory is correct. Seems like I remember some stragglers into the mid-60s.

Gifferent color globes, were used for different products. I cant find my info on them right now though. It was posted here about two years ago. Maybe somebody else remembers that.

Hi Ryan,

According to PCM's Guide to Gas Pump Restoration, Gold Crown globes (premium grade} were used from 1956 to 1961 by Standard of Indiana. There is a color image of the pump showing color combinations and decals. That's the only reference book I have on the subject.

Only purple I have seen are the Fantasy clear ones made in a variety of colors.
There was also a swag lamp made for dealers that have a flange on top, bottom extends down approx. 1/2".

At Peotone, I saw a advertising car topper with cardboard inserts with blue and purple crowns and a reference to Purple Power, IIRC. Looked like it attached to something (car roof?) via suction cups. I didn't get a good look to confirm that the crowns were Stanolind style. Wish I could remember the wording on it.
I have never seen a purple crown, but recall the grey and the green crowns when I was a kid. It was a special treat to see those!

Maps,
I have a car/truck roof topper you are referring to. Wording on it is IT'S PURPLE [RED CROWN IN CENTER] IT'S POWERFULL.
I was told it referred to the color of RED CROWN GASOLINE [regular] at the time.

Thanks, Dick-
I never thought about purple referring to the gas color. That's been making me slightly nuts since Peotone.

That's the sign I saw at Peotone. Either the light or my eyes were bad.
