There were a number of different Oil companies that had pump shaped radios. Maybe Mick will share his collection with us wink

There are for the most part 2 styles of radio. The ones Mick has and ones that looks like a visible with globe. To me the smaller radios are worth more and look better, but that is just my opinion. Plus, they are original "station give-aways" and the others are not,if I'm not mistaken. Prices range greatly and with a little care one can get a pretty fair collection for not a lot of $$.

If you have any questions, please ask. I know I wasn't the only one collecting these "smalls". Hopefully I or the group here can answer any questions you have.
As Mick said there is Sinclair, Texaco and others. I would stop looking for awhile and sure enough I would run across one I didn't have.

I have about 25 of the fifties/sixties style gas pump shaped radios in my collection. Unfortunately they are not at my present location so I can't get a photo. I may have a photo in my records but that will take some looking. Among the brands available were Texaco at least 3 versions, Standard/American once again at least 3 different versions, Sinclair, Sunoco, Skelly, Getty, Surfco, Sohio, Boron, Super Cetron, Chevron, Esso, Enco, Gulf, Fina, Shell SU2000 and others that I can't recall. Found a picture from 2 years ago. Shows the gas pump radios.

About 8 of the batteries on the top row are banks. The rest are radios. The oil cans are all radios.

Bill That is so cool! You would think a guy with 350 old radios and a few old gas pumps and other misc would have known there was such radios..... not this dummy! Wow that is a neat collection and a nice layout for them. Thanks for sharing! tt
