Thanks to everyone who took the time to provide input on the value of the Ford Oval, appreciate the feedback.

Working on a deal that includes some pumps to go along with the sign so your feedback will help me with a starting point.

Wish me luck!

Steve

June-July, August 2009 and October 2009 - Gilmore-Yosemite Economy Runs and Gilmore Grand Canyon Economy Run
December 2009 - Mobilgas Economy Runs 1950-1968

The Gilmore era predates the Mobilgas Runs and the Gilmore Run articles are some of the best overviews written (very little has been written about these previously) before the publication in 2014 of my Economy Run book. All are well written by D. L. Cole in my opinion.

Hello all, I recently aquired this vintage tire display stand. I did not know this, but according to research I have done. Ford made tires around 1940. I was told there where reproductions made of these, but this one is original, and I believe somewhat rare? Appreciate any knowledge of these. Thank you, John

As far as I can tell this is completely original. I removed it from a farm right off the underground tank two years ago. Surface rust only, blue cylinder is cracked, field mods are as installed and the pump is free. All doors, plates and handles are authentic.The globe is obviously a replica. I was going to restore it but then thought it is too original and it should just stay like it is. Located in Lexington Kentucky.

I am sorry, but for a reason I am not sure how to correct, this site won’t allow me to search the archives past June 2017?

The mechanism that engages the hand reset "mode" is broken off and without that mechanism, I cannot make the gallon hands reset to zero. Attached are photos of the bracket. It has numerous rods with sprockets attached to it. If someone has a complete clockface mechanism, I would consider purchasing it. Not all 850 clock mechanisms were the same. My pump has the clock mechanism associated with pump serial numbers 369,972 - 499,999.

Hi ... Have a lot of information on the 1954-1957 Economy Runs (which has been an interest of mine for over 60 years now!) and have written a book on the history of the Economy Runs (The Mobilgas Economy Run by Dave Hermanson) that is currently available at Amazon and other sites. Lots of detailed information in the book as well as numerous photographs. Always looking for additional items for my collection as I am missing some detailed technical information for these years.

Petroliana Value Questions
Wed Feb 21 2018 06:15 PM
I see this FORD sign is two-sided, and with reasonably good porcelain. Since the can is included, I'm thinking this sign value (to me) is in the $8,000 to $10,000 range these days. Just my opinion, of course. I should note that I'm conservative by nature! By the way, I don't think the broken neon affects the value by all that much. That is expected by many collectors in a "as-found" neon sign. And, in my opinion, correctly repaired or replaced neon won't hurt the value much at some future point in time. After all, every sign collector wants these things to light up! Of course, a sign that was not originally punched for neon, but has been made into a neon sign is an entirely different story. Obviously, that's not the case here.

TWO guys had to think that first FORD sign at the Miller auction was worth the $20,000+ price. I realize what Jim is saying about the prices at the Miller auction being on the top end, and I feel the same way. However, how many times over the past five years or so, have we seen what seemed like high auction prices for these goodies become the new normal? In my mind, there's no doubt that high auction prices push prices up in general. Sure, we still might come upon a seller who doesn't know gas and oil things, or who hasn't kept up with prices over the past decade....but ask yourself, how often does that happen any more (compared to ten years ago)? John

Hi, Jim. Possibly you could have these oil cabinet oil weight strips printed on a glossy paper, and THEN laminated. That would produce the "plastic look" you mentioned. Most quick-print or copy shops have the equipment to laminate things. It would be important to have the print shop use the lightest gauge of laminating film possible to achieve the best look. You might have to shop around to find a shop that offers various thicknesses of this laminating film. Just a suggestion to consider. Best, John

How tall a glass cylinder is needed for my G&B 176 “ Tall Ten” pump? Diameter 10.25 OD
There is a volume calculator online. I came up with between 32 & 34 inches, but would like to know for sure. Thank you.
