Is that a fat man wheel?
That was really fancy with all the pin strips. Of course I like this photo!
Thanks again Jay
Note the "squared off" splash shields.
'26 or '27, a company or municipal vehicle ? Almost looks as if there's a child in the cab ? Can anyone read the door imprint ? "Roxana" ?? is the design a scallop shell, or a stylized peacock ? The driver should have removed his cigar . . . looks bad !
I would think that it is a early 26 since it has no brace between the headlights. I like that steering wheel it would make it a little easier getting in and out with the top up. Jim
"Roxanna Petroleum Corporation", founded in 1912, based in Oklahoma.
A joint venture by Dutch Royal Shell and American Gasoline Co. of Seattle, Wash.
I'm with James, early '26. also early stations.
The little guy in the cab is "Oily Ollie" he was hired by the foreman leaning on the truck to do interior pipeline inspections and clean the crude oil build up from the pipelines. He is also credited with inventing the oil pipeline "pig" which put him out of a job.
Perry, I'd say a "PIG" in a pipe is better then a "Pig" in a poke.
How often do you have to go to the beach and grease the shells?
Rich must still be at the beach greasing the shells because he hasn't told me how often he has to go grease them with his can of Shell Grease.
Sorry, I wasn't paying attention. What?
Looks to be a cloth top to. I like that alot. Can you tell?
