Very Kewl Sign! These have to be quite rare as General Motors only held the patent for Ethyl for a couple of years before selling it. They decided that they didn't want to be in the gas business - just the car/truck business. Of course this was way before they produced trains or refrigerators. LOL

I'd love to find one of those myself. I've got no idea what it's worth - but it is Kewl!

Later . . .

Jim,
Ethyl Gasoline Corporation was a joint venture between G.M. and Standard of New Jersey. The name of the company was changed to Ethyl Corporation in 1942. They're still in business today. I don't know how long G.M. was involved with the company. If you researched it I think you'd find that Ethyl Gasoline Corporation owned the Ethyl patents, not G.M. G.M. might have sold their portion of the Ethyl Gasoline Corp. I've got that info somewhere, finding its the problem. Anyway, Dick's sign is one of the earliest Ethyl signs. Its probably from 1923 or 24, before the GM/Esso partnership.

Hello everyone. This is a great forum. I've been reading it for a while now but never had anything to add until now. This sign was in my father's garage until he retired in the late 80's. At that time he gave it to someone who really wanted it. It moved about 120 miles away until last year when I got it back. To me it is valued priceless because of its history. http://www.suitorsgarage.com/garageoilzumsign1.html
The value on the website was a joke for someone who thinks he can buy it.
