Oil Cans for Model T Ford

Post by moozark » Thu Jan 17, 2019 5:59 pm

None of these cans are mine. These are some digital photos I've saved for a long time. Most of these are very scarce. They are all photos of oil cans that are produced by Ford or are for Model T Ford use:

I really like the third can from the top with the touring car on the label.

Don't know there ever was a Ford supplied oil container/jug, oil can yes, container don't think so. I do not recall ever seeing anything in print other then to use a good grade of oil in the parts or owners manual or service book.
I know the voices aren't real but damn they have some good ideas! :roll:

I have a parts and accessories book printed by Duncan and Fraser, Ford agents and distributors in South Australia. Among the items shown is engine oil packed in tins with their own label. I'd like to find one of those!!!!!
