This is a 5 gal oil can Sohilube with the old style logo. Anyone know the time period this logo was used?
Thanks, Tom

    I'd say 60's but I'll check my expert (my son) and get back.........

    Got an answer from my expert, he says most likely 1955 based on graphic......

    I would agree with the 1955 assessment. Sohio Premex was introduced in '55, and I believe the SAE 140 was Premex, and this logo is correct to that period as well.

    Interesting historical information about Sohio is available here - http://www.dantiques.com/sohio/

    and here - http://www.dantiques.com/sohio/timeline.htm
