I am surprised no one has ever tried to do a restoration of that Gilmore Neon. Has always been one of my favoite Bulk Truck photos.
I wonder just how hard it was for those guys to use the Aero designed trucks? A lot of extra truck body to work around.

This could be had for cheap if you have a big truck and trailer to haul it on. No cab or chasis just a tanker.

This is a curious one. Skelly and Marathon. My research shows Transcontinental oil and Skelly did a joint venture for a couple years. I lost that clipping and have not been able to find another. I have a couple photos of Stations dual branded Marathon / Skelly also.
LOVE THAT HAT!
Pretty much anything this old that says "Marathon Oil Company", will date prior to 1930. Transcontinental Oil used the name "Marathon Oil Company". When the Ohio Oil bought Transcontinental Oil it dropped the "Oil Company" and changed it to "Marathon" or "Marathon Products" up until 1962 when they changed the company name from The Ohio Oil to Marathon.

Check the static chains on these !!
Old timers said they caused more fires than they prevented.

Here is a tank owned by a friend. His dad owned it when he started his gas business. He told me when business started booming, his dad had the 50 gallon compartment added to the front! A '55 chevy truck is currently being restored which the tank will go on. Then he will let his sales reps drive it around.

On another note, if anyone knows where one of the 5 gallon increment clock face dials that would go on the inside door pictured below and used to record how many 5 gallon cans they sold, please let me know!

Looking for any Alabama based globes and advertising such as Coastal, Rebel, Interstate Oil, Foster Oil (supertane), Mutual, Oil Well, etc...

Necessity is the mother of invention.
Note the hand operated pump on the back of the "leaking" wagon.

Buds Service. For a long time Bud's Truck stop on the southwest corner of Indy was the only Truck stop on the beltway around Indy. A popular stop for drivers and lot lizards. Now you will find it was replaced by Mr. Fuel and an addition of Pilot and "The Fishhook" truck stops. Bud's main competition was Blue and White Service, an Indianaplis based group of Truck stops.

Ulmer's truck exemplifies the early truck regulations in Indiana.
Maximum width - 8'
Maximum height - 12'
Maximum combination length - 40'
Maximum weight - 40,000 lbs.
Maximum allowed speed for loads of gross weight over 5,000 lbs was 45 mph.

5 years ago Ulmer's was still in business pulling that same type wagon.

One we don't like to see.
Product running down the road and no apparent attempt to stop it.
Probably had some high speed maniac driving 45 mph cut him off.

Nice photo of a bulk truck taken in the early 60's sent by another Old Gasser when he was 2.
