I found this on craigslist. Here is a great opportunity to buy an original prefab gas station. I am willing to provide free help in the form of experience I have had in moving similar buildings.

https://columbus.craigslist.org/tro/d/two-buildings-for-sale/6359905367.html

These are Union Metal Manufacturing prefab buildings. Here is a link to this style in a Union Metal filling station catalog circa 1930.

Actually I think a deal can be made because there is a short deadline for removal. If anyone is interested they should make an offer because they need to be moved soon.

What there saying is, they took terrible pictures & if you want to sell something you should take good pics of the item you are trying to sell

Looks like some cool buildings if a collector could make a deal and drag them home. The pictures sure don't show much. The one with a fence in the foreground is one of the worst "for sale" photos I've seen. Might get a better view on Google Maps Street View. Full Size Street View

Great pictures. If any one is interested I think I can get both for $5000. We really need to save this piece of history.

I have these buildings given to me if I can move them. Is there anyone out there that would like them? I live 12 hours away and it may not work out for me to get there in time to take down. If you are interested contact me and I will help make arrangements for you to get them. Two main problems is the need to be removed soon and then that means the weather in Ohio is the other problem. 785-477-0328
