Well, Zerolene was developed in 1907 at the Richmond Ca refinery. So at least you know it can't be older than 105 years! Looks to be in nice shape and a great find!

Sorry no help on the age of the truck, but I think you are in the right neighborhood. I'm sure somebody out there can help on the truck age.
