I found this on craigslist. Here is a great opportunity to buy an original prefab gas station. I am willing to provide free help in the form of experience I have had in moving similar buildings.

https://columbus.craigslist.org/tro/d/two-buildings-for-sale/6359905367.html

These are Union Metal Manufacturing prefab buildings. Here is a link to this style in a Union Metal filling station catalog circa 1930.

This is an individual person needing to get buildings move off of the property.

Actually I think a deal can be made because there is a short deadline for removal. If anyone is interested they should make an offer because they need to be moved soon.

What there saying is, they took terrible pictures & if you want to sell something you should take good pics of the item you are trying to sell

Looks like some cool buildings if a collector could make a deal and drag them home. The pictures sure don't show much. The one with a fence in the foreground is one of the worst "for sale" photos I've seen. Might get a better view on Google Maps Street View. Full Size Street View
