Re: Derby oil dispenser Rabbitman 1 hour ago
Derby was a very well known brand and covered a large service area in the midwest. They had all kinds of stations from cut rate gas only stations to large service centers. They would have definitely used bulk lubesters like yours in a lot of stations so restoring it to the Derby theme would be fine as far as usage by the company goes. Check with Derbygasman here on Oldgas, he is a big Derby collector and lives in Wichita. He can tell you where to look for all the information on Derby you might need. He checks here once in a while but you might send him a private message. His contact info should be n his profile. Good luck with your project.

Derby oil dispenser burdar Yesterday at 11:56 PM
I bought my first oil dispenser the other day. There are no identifying numbers or logos anywhere and there are no remnants of old decals. I guess that means I can refinish it however I want. I'm mulling over a couple different ideas. One idea is a Derby theme. There was a Derby station in my home town while growing up and thought it might be cool. The issue I'm having is that I can't find much info about Derby. The few pictures I can find show very small retail buildings with no service bays attached. Any oil those places sold (I assume) would be in pre-packaged quarts and not in bulk. A Google search did show one abandoned Derby station in Missouri that has two service bays but I have no idea when that location was in buisiness. What ever theme I decide on, I'd like it to be something that was at least possible to exist.

Does anyone have any info on Derby stations and if some of them had service bays that would have pumped oil in bulk? I did find and read the info from this site when Derby was featured one month. Thanks

Hey, just joined. I just built a garage addition to safely house a couple old cars. I'd like to learn more about old gas stations and equipment so I can decorate the new space.

Re: Flying A Ethyl pump plate Speedracer Yesterday at 05:45 AM
Flying A was a large chain. They may have had two or more manufacturers of pump plates. Like Randy pointed out.. there are differences, but doesn’t necessarily mean it’s fake. Sometimes pump plates had subtle differences from manufacturer to manufacturer.

A couple Richfield bottles and porcelain light shades.

If anyone has converted shades like these to work with a modern light socket, I’d sure appreciate recommendations.
