Great find. It states on the top of the can "This can fits under seat of Ford Touring car". Well Mike you're just going to have to send it to me so I can see if it is true! I must check out truth in advertising you know. :-)

Appears to have been made in Canuckistan given the Toronto, Ontario address. Never seen one before - it is a neat piece.

Now that's a new one on me. Didn't know about Ford motor oil.
If you look on the side of the can it tells what Ford cars need. Neat piece!

There are a couple of very interesting things about this can:

1. At the bottom it reads, "All Ford agents sell Ford motor oil". If that was universally true you'd think such cans would be commonly found. Maybe it means all Ford agents in Canada?

2. The side panel promotes Peerless Gasoline, Vulcan Transmission grease, and Old English Metal Polish. Are these all Canadian products not typically found in the USA?

3. It gives rise to a question about Henry Fords business alliances. Was the British American Oil Company Ford owned or was it for some reason Henry's chosen supplier?

Just my thoughts.....

Here is another one, unfortunately not as nice as Mike's. The one I have says for Runabouts. These are the only two I have ever seen. The five gallon pail is a little different , but still unusual.

"This can fits under seat of Ford touring car"

This one sold in January at a recent online auction. I was watching it, but missed on bidding on it.

I have never been to check this out but while we are on the subject of Ford oil, does the Henry Ford Museum have any Ford oil cans with the Ford name on them that's pictured or something similar?
