IN 1956 MAGAZINE ADS SHOW THE OLD SHIELDS COMING DOWN AND THESE
NEW WIDER ONES GOING UP, AND LOGO SHORTENED TO JUST "MOBIL." HERE ARE A FEW EXAMPLES IN MY INVENTORY:



THIS S/S VERSION IS A MONSTER BUT I MANAGED TO HANG IT MYSELF!.....

I BELIEVE MOBIL STARTED USING THIS RED "O" LOGO IN 1966:

HERE'S MY COOKIE CUTTER. I GOT THIS ABOUT 8 YEARS AGO AT A LOCAL
ANTIQUE BARN SALE. I SAW THE BODY AND THE PRICE AND QUICKLY BECAME INTERESTED. I ASKED THE PROPRIETORS ABOUT THE 3 MISSING PARTS, AND THEY SAID THEY WERE NOT AVAILABLE. I LEFT W/O THE PEGASUS....BUT GOT TO THINKING ABOUT REPRODUCING THE MISSING PARTS ON THE DRIVE HOME. THE NEXT DAY I WENT BACK AND I BOUGHT THE LEG AND TAILLESS PONY AND TOOK IT HOME. IN THE WEEKS TO FOLLOW, I CRANKED OUT WHAT LOOKS TO BE SOME PRETTY CONVINCING FRONT & REAR LEGS AND A TAIL. THE AVERAGE JOE DOESN'T LOOK TWICE...UNTIL THEY HEAR THE TRUTH!

1st is a large painted tin sign approx. 5ft. wide.
2nd is a couple of weathervane tops.
3rd, I was told this is a pipeline single sided sign.
4th, Mobiloil bottle rack. All 4 sides are the same, except that there are handle holes on 2 sides.
Dick

This is my last Mobil sign for my collection. A pump plate. We will be starting a new sign of the month on the 7th. Scott Shipers will get it going as I will be on vacation. We will be doing Standard oil company, Chevron and all associated companies east and west coast. Let's make it another good one. Ted
