The images I have posted this morning were submitted by Lonnie Hop, Lastgas, and Aumann Auctions. After downloading, moving files, uploading, yadda, yadda, I lost track of what belonged to whom. Please feel free to chime in amd take credit for your item if needed.

Thanks to all that have contributed info so far. Some really great stuff has been posted. Thank you.

MARATHON BOUGHT OUT PLYMOUTH OIL CO IN 1962.
REPUBLIC HAD CHANGED THEIR NAME TO PLYMOUTH OIL CO IN THE 1950's. IN THIS DEAL CAME THE TEXAS CITY, TEXAS REFINERY

IF ONE IS ENOUGH,HOW MANY IS TO MANY ?

THIS STYLE OF BIG "M" WAS USED FROM 1959 TO 1962. I HAVE 41 STATES PLUS THE 2 TRAVEL BUREAU,TOLL ROAD, AND THE USA /MEXICO MAPS WITH THIS COVER. THE MARKETING AREA STATES USED MORE COLOR ON THE COVER.

THESE 1955 TRAILMOBILE DOUBLE TRAILERS WERE AQUIRED FROM MARATHON SHORTLY AFTER THE AURORA / SPEEDWAY BUYOUT AND WERE MOST LIKELY USED BY AURORA. MARATHON AS MANY OIL COMPANIES WOULD PAY FOR A PAINT JOB EVERY 5 YEARS IF YOU DISPLAYED THERE LOGO. NOTE THAT THE MARATHON RED DOESN'T MATCH THE NEW 1970 IHC TRACTOR RED. I ALSO HAD THE MARATHON DECAL ON THE TRACTOR SHUTTERS.

I WOULD TITLE THIS PICTURE "OUT TO PASTURE".
THIS IS MATE TO THE SET OF DOULBLES IN THE PREVIOUS POST THAT ANOTHER JOBBER BOUGHT FROM MARATHON. I FOUND IT SETTING IN FIELD A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO.
BRINGS BACK MEMORIES AS I REMEMBER THE DRIVER WHO PULLED THEM.
