I got a hold of this and was wondering if anyone could tell me about it? I dont know the age or its current value or if its worth restoring it? Hope someone can help. Thanks!

    Its an oil can rack. Probably from the 1950's-1960's. Would have sat in between the gas pumps on an island. The signs on it might be a little bit expensive and hard to find but they look great restored full of cans. In this condition you should be able to get around $300 maybe a little more to the right person. I've seen them restored go around the 600-$700 range. If you are doing it to keep than do it in you favorite company but if your looking to sell it i would say red and white are the best re-sell colors because they can easily be changed into different companies like Texaco, Standard, American, and many other companies that use those colors. There would have also been a decal on the door.

    Thanks so much for the info! I'll prob look to sell it as is being as the restoration won't really bring much more value. Now have to figure out where to advertise. Thanks again!
