Though advertising items are my main focus I also collect old tin and metal trucks. Here's a few of them that are related to petroleum but also feature advertising. They are all from the 1950's, give or take a year or two.

The first one is a British Tri-Ang that has BP on one side and Shell on the other. It is in really nice condition but might be missing the hoses?

The second one is a Japanese tin Shell tanker.

The first truck is an American Buddy L steel tanker. It was produced in 1956 and was available as a premium at Texaco gas stations.

The second one is a Japanese tin Mobilgas tanker.

The third one is a large Esso tanker and also Japanese.

These are not petrol trucks but they do have advertising so I thought I would add them in.

The first truck is a Japanese milk tanker advertising Exclusive Dairies and is made from tin.

The second truck is also Japanese tin and advertises Crown Soda.

The third truck is a metal American Wyandotte Railway Express Agency truck. I find this one interesting because it self promotes the Wyandotte company it is made by.

Thanks for your contribution enamelsigns72.

I like the red Esso Dinky tanker and it looks to be in great condition.
