My first post on oldgas and sadly I'm in need of a tidewater base in order to complete my lollipop "Ask For Veedol Motor Oils - Greases" 24" sign. I believe it should be 1 1/4 threaded in order to fit! If you have one or any base that will work contact me please, Thanks!

Corey,are you sure you need a Tidewater Oil base (after 1956) and not a Tide Water Associated base (from 1936- 1956)?

If you will post an image of your sign; we may be able to tell you which base went with the sign...

Bob, I believe this is the 24" Corey has as you are correct as it would be tidewater/associated
Corey, I also needed a base & this was my solution until I find one- bought these wooden letters at Michael's and painted them orange (there not siliconed on yet as I'm in the middle of doing this).. ... cool

Having trouble uploading my sign picture on my phone but i found a picture of the same style i own on google so i added the link. Thank you for your expertise! I have been collecting for 4 or 5 years and always wanted a lollipop sign so this will be my first one.

Thats the one! I like that idea and I will definitely do that if i cant find the original base anytime soon. Thats a very shiny sign, mine is not glossy like that, the shine is long gone. Thanks for the reply!
