Does anyone have any info on year and value of this oil can display? I have the chance to buy but didn’t know what I should offer. Thanks

I sold one of those years ago, so I can’t help you on value, but I can say it is very nice that it’s complete with the doors and the garbage tray. Those are often missing.

Since it looks complete with the drain pan and night covers I'd say $400-600

I had that exact model and always thought it would be cool to put some rope lighting under the top lip. It is a little modern, but you wouldn’t see it and it would light up the cans pretty cool.

There should also be two steel rods that pull out from the top. They hold two advertising signs.

Thanks buzzy.

And I think I need to correct myself. I think it was one steel rod that came out of the top in the center. The threaded steel rod went through an upside down u-channel. You placed two advertising signs in an upside down V pattern between the u channel (at the top) and the little embossed bumps on the top lid. Then you tighten the threaded rod to hold the signs in place.

I think that it’s only missing the steel rod and bar. I think I could probably get that fabricated. I’ve seen two or three of this same model online but never one with a sign. Do you know what they would have looked like?
