The Sunoco arrow gets kicked on an angle in the late 50's. '58ish I believe. So this sign would have to predate that happening. I'm sure it's fake as they were still using the small oval air signs as shown here above this guys head at that time.
Too hard to tell. Just look at it as a parts pump. There might be some money in it if you buy is cheap enough and sell the parts to someone else. Does it have a tower like the one you show in the picture, if it does this is worth some money, some of the other parts may have some value.
But, I agree with Tom, don't pay anything like you suggested you might be able to get it for. When Tom looks at things, he automatically factors in the cost of getting anything from point A to point B. If it is down the road, OK, but if it is in the next state, stay home and have a good day with the kids/
I buy and sell a lot of things, at age 83 I don't collect much of anything anymore. I get an offer to purchase something, I ask for the bottom price, then I factor in what it will cost me to get it from him to me, then I decide can I make some money? There are always regrets, just keep them at a minimum.
Hello: i am restoring a National Tall Ten Gasoline pump from the mid 20's. I am looking for a little help in picking an advertising globe that may have been from that era. Actually my pump would have had 2 advertising discs and the ring to hold the 2 pieces. I am thinking about red as the main color of the pump, but i would consider other colors depending on what advertising i and up with. can anyone suggest any and show a photos of what might have been available back then?
That Veedol poster is amazing, bustermonty! I need one in my life! Here’s a Tidex one I had a couple years ago and a poorly cropped pic of my French Tide Water Suprol poster as I’m not home to take a better pic
I planned on checking it out. I've never been there, I heard it's really a nice show. I'm meeting someone there who has a few items I'm going to purchase from old gas. I appreciate the information! I'm excited to check it out.
This a great old plate with great gloss and heavy shelving. It is dirty I have not cleaned it,I thought I had sold the last one but I found this one in a box I have tucked away in my attic, I have had it for over 30 years time for someone else to enjoy it. It is 15 x 8 in size............300 with FREE priority and insurance shipping in the lower 48
