Sinclair gas & oil cans and gas station lights & more

This listing is for a little collection of various oil cans and 7 old ceramic/porcelain lights from two gas stations.

I’ll start by saying I am sorry the photos aren’t very good but I wanted to get this collections online today so I just took quick photos. I will be happy to text or email interested parties the backside of the cans if we are working on a possible deal.

I also apologize that I did not clean these cans or porcelain lamp shades before listing. I’ve been very busy and if they don’t sell on Craigslist I will clean them up and put on Ebay. The fact I didn’t clean them up will save someone some money on the purchase price.

What I have here is two 5 gallon oil cans – a Sinclair and a Montgomery Wards, which at the time I believe was called just “Wards.” The Sinclair can is super clean inside and out. There are a few scrapes and a little fading to the graphics but all four caps screw on and off smoothly and easily and there is no rust. It almost looks like there was never oil inside.

The Wards is as pictured and should clean up really nice to expose the red can. NO dings or dents in either can.

Next I have two 2 gallon oil cans – a Sinclair and a Shell. The Sinclair is a very collectible can and this one is very nice. The oil/dirt on top and front of can will clean off easily. No rust. The Shell is also really nice and will also clean up very well.

Next up is 7 quart oil cans. The Arco and Sinclair Tenol cans are full and supper clean. The Sinclair just needs to be wiped down. The other Sinclair has no top and is a little rough as photo shows. The two Yamaha cans and one Shell can also have no tops. They are in pretty good condition. The Shell can is really nice.

Again, I have not cleaned any of the cans in this ad.

I also have not cleaned the 7 gas station lamp shades. They are the larger version – 16-inches across. They are green with white on the inside and a blue rim around the edge. They are in overall excellent condition with a few minor porcelain chips here and there. Primarily inside or on the edge. Very minimal.

So…I am not an expert on these things and while I have researched prices, I am hoping someone will make a good offer. The listing requires me to add a price at top. I am not selling all of this for $100. Thank you. I am willing to sell any of these cans or shades individually.

I live in Alpena, MI and prefer cash pick up but I am willing to ship for a separate fee. I have carefully packaged and shipped hundreds of items over the past 30 years.

I will respond to emails, but for quickest service call or text me at show contact info . Thank you.
