So since this thread was done http://www.oldgas.com/forum/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=558941&page=1 I thought it would be nice to see the oldest fire chief pump plates.

Here's mine.

I've been saving these for the right pump which will be all original.

3-40 is the oldest I've seen for both SkyChief and Fire-Chief.

Not an expert. Oldest pump plates I have seen were 1940. Prior to that they used mostly decals to identify Fire Chief. Prior to Sky Chief, Texaco called the premium brand Fire Chief with Ethyl. I redid a Bennet 76 as Texaco Ethyl and had to use pictures to create a "decal." It was actually a magentic sign I had created. They did put some porcelain signs on pumps that were the Clean, Clear, Golden signs....And yes, this was the Standard Oil version of Bennet 76...
