I'm new to this world but love everything about it as my dad was a shade tree mechanic and I grew up fixing cars with him.
I came a cross this little GULF electric wall clock (still works) that has me confused. It looks fake because there is the "Service" logo borrowed from United Motors on the clock face as well as the GULF logo. When I look at it it seems old-ish (late '50s/early 60's). It has an old power cord, the box around the clock is 1/4" wood, mitered corners, painted flat white. The face is shiny paper mounted to 1/8" fiber board and then attached to the wood box with brass brads, well made for a fake. It's ~12"x12" in size. Has anyone seen one of these before or any insight on what the back story is? I like it regardless of the authenticity, but I want to understand what I have.
