I FOUND THIS RATHER ROUGH AND OLD GARGOYLE MOBIL OIL BOX AT A YARD SALE A FEW YEARS AGO CARRYING AN $18 PRICE TAG! I DIDN'T BUY IT AS I THOUGHT IT WAS TOO MUCH! I DROVE BY 2 NIGHTS LATER
AND TOOK IT OFF THEIR GARBAGE! I GUESS IT MEANT ALOT TO THEM....SINCE ALL THEIR UNSELLABLES WERE MARKED "FREE!"
STILL A NICE 75+ YEAR OLD TEN-1 GALLON CAN CRATE:

Hello, it's me, C Cragg, just using a new name now that the Poor Man's Petrolania Museum is up and operating. Here is my one and only box (hope you can see the imprint okay in the photo). For those of you that can't visit the museum in Solvang you can visit me in cyber space at my new website http://mysite.verizon.net/res1ap7a/

Hi Scott,

Here's a couple items for your COTW topic. The first
is a pump island box from France that would have been
placed outside next to a gas pump and been used to
store cans or bottles of oil. The second is a wood box
end from Gilmore Oil that's had a wood "frame" added.
The original box was made for cans of oil to be
exported to New Zealand.
