NOS emergency gas tank, made by the "Emergency Door Tank Mfg. Co." of Minneapolis, MN. Accessory emergency gas tank made specifically to fit in the door panel of a Model T. Galvanized, with installation instructions label on one side, painted black on the other. Brass cap. Label is in fantastic condition (see pictures) with nothing more than shelf wear - same with black paint on reverse side.
Only information I could find about the company is a listing in the April 17,1919 edition of Automotive Industries magazine (Vol. 40, p. 34), where the inventor was looking for a "firm to manufacture an emergency door tank for Ford automobiles." Have never seen another one of these - cannot imagine many were made and/or survived. Really nice, unusual accessory for use or display.
$225 plus shipping (will probably fit in a USPS flat rate box). Contact via PM.
Two, small, shallow dents on graphics side, visible in pictures.

Cool accessory. I can't afford, but nice! Is the serial number visible?
Last price drop - $150 plus shipping. There's no serial number that I can see.
One bump before it goes on EBay with a higher reserve than current asking price.
