Big thank you going out to Mike Conliff for the help and sending me a copy of service manual, parts book.
It will be so much help.
Also Mike Ezzi for the 8 reader panels. If I go to 8 reader they will be a very hard part to find.
Thanks
Guys!

I spent some time watching YouTube Sunoco commercials and they give a nice look at stations and pumps back in the day.
Very help full.

Some pictures from slides, from the late 1950's with the spinning wheels.

Those are a great help! I have a plan to make a top bracket for signage. That 260 picture gives me exactly what I was looking for along with the pumps.
Also I haven't seen that shield decal on the trash can and oil rack before.
Thanks for posting.

I haven't seen those decals either.

The jobber I worked for didn't add the Sunoco brand until 1979.

Looking thru many adds and video's it looks as though there was a transition in where these plates went from black bottom to to white with arrows. Probably just before it went from slider bar to the roller sale marker.
Still digging on the date, also there was a small spinner version I haven't nailed down yet.
