The cans can still be found in the region around Hollis. Some in pristine condition. I picked up a few from a guy that still had them in the cardboard case from the factory. Each can was unlidded and in an individual plastic wrap.

Butch's number of 20k is what I have always been told. Mid-late 80's ads ran in Hemmings for several years @ $35/case.

Dad and I bought 10 cases for $240 around 1988 at Pate in Cresson, TX and at the time spending $240 on oil cans was questionable, (nice 30" signs were 200-400)

I have seen tons of the metal empty cans, some have been "lidded", but cant recall one made of cardboard or having a paper label. Doesnt seem to be as many of the SWIFT brand. I do not believe these were ever intended to be "display" cans. just over purchased empties. This brings to mind all the TIDEWATER cans ,same deal. Butch, I think the Falcon cans sell in the $35-$40 range now.

I was in Florida last week and they were every where at the flea markets for 15.00 to 20.00 each. I was told someone came in with 20 cases all empty cans mint for sale. I bought a few cans but wondered the same thing after buying them (ARE THEY FAKE) But researched and figured they were real.


Thanks Dino
