Great info and pix! Thank you. Keep them coming.
Any thoughts on specific years Shell used this darker yellow which I love btw. vs bright or pale yellow if you will.
Did look thru an older gas pump guide with color illustrations yet it’s unclear if there was a cut off at x-year or if station owners/regional distributors got to choose which paint scheme.
From a business point of view would think large corporation would have strict guidelines with regards to marketing campaigns and brand “image”. Continuity across brand and regions, but I certain could be wrong.
Given so many independent station owners and being practical, maybe they painted using what they had or pump resellers repurposed their inventory when stations switched brands at a specific gas station.
Can paint it what I want, but for me it’s painting more in spirit for a 54-56 Tokheim w/Shell colors.
Automotive paint is expensive.
