I'm looking for some also. I went to my local lighting supply store to see about ordering some but they couldn't find then either. We looked online and found 1 but they wanted $50 each!


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

If they are that expensive, how about relighting the whole thing with an led system? These are reasonable. Paul www.severngaspumps,com

They should just be a T12 HO lamp that any sign shop should have. I would guess F18's or F24's or a combination. The 18's should be about $21.00 & the 24's about $9.00. What's the distance between sockets?

Hi Cliff, They are 6" across but they have to be 16" high and I can not find any that size? Thanks Chuck.

Hi Cliff, They are u bend lamps I have tried everywhere with no luck, they say they do not make them anymore so I'm just going to LED probably cheaper in the long run. Thanks for the help, Chuck...
