Re: Very old oil transport tanks FREE

Update: Looks like both tanks will find new homes where they will be appreciated.

Re: Very old oil transport tanks FREE

The size of the remaining tank is 78" long, 38" wide, 36" tall. That does not include the drain valve on one end, and the dome on top. So it will fit easily in a full size pickup, and at 6' 6" long it would probably fit sideways on a flatbed truck.

Re: Very old oil transport tanks FREE

They were oil transport tanks used on any old truck. Actually one is being donated to the Santa Paula Oil Museum, where Union Oil Co. started. But the larger one is still available if you want it. They are not that big, I'll measure the one still available and post the dimensions here later today.

Re: shipping: All I can do is load them on whatever transport you provide. Just so you know: they are quite heavy.

Very old oil transport tanks FREE

I have these 2 very old oil transport tanks that I was going to use on my AA, but I no longer have that truck. On the cap is stamped "Union Oil Co". Union Oil was founded near here in CA in 1890, so I think these tanks are very old. I tried to sell them for scrap iron value, but no takers, SO, I'm g...

Very old oil transport or storage tanks PRICE LOWERED

I have these 2 very old tanks which were used to transport petroleum products. I was going to put them on my AA, but I don't have that truck anymore, so now they are for sale. Their last use was for storing used motor oil, so they are not rusty inside, but they are "gunky". One is 76x38x37" high, th...

Re: 1931 82-B Closed Cab (Steel Top)

I just realized this is the original cab that was on the 229A service car that was (also) in La Verne CA. Guess the guy restoring it found a better cab to use.

Re: 1931 82-B Closed Cab (Steel Top)

Well then, a Service Car (truck) would be perfect for a dealer. May have owned it from new then added "Mercury" and "Zephyr" when they were introduced. This would be much more interesting if the Service Car body was still with it.

Re: 1931 82-B Closed Cab (Steel Top)

Looks like the old writing on the door is "Ford - Mercury - Lincoln Zephyr". Did a dealer use this truck, after 1939? (when Mercury was introduced).

Re: First AA

Hey GK, good news, bad news: I have a front bumper with brackets you can have for $25, bad news is: it is in Upper Michigan, only available in the summer, and I don't want to ship it.

Re: Wheel stud and wheel nut

Kaboom, you could also purchase good used brake drums with good lugs on them. I'll bet someone in AA Forum has some. I might have some at my summer home, but I won't be there until next summer.
