Default Horse Drawn "Standard Oil" Fuel wagon on auction.

Just thought I'd put the word out that there's an old Standard Oil horse drawn fuel delivery wagon coming up on an aution this weekend at the Sale Barn in Dakota Illinois on Highway 75 at the North East corner of town.

I haven't been over to look at it yet to see how much is there, but the sale bill says it's rough.

There are also a few hit & miss engines on the sale.

Schrader's Fall Consignment sale.

I'm going to try to get over to look at things later today or tomorrow, and maybe get a couple pictures posted.

Other than the wood wheels being totally gone, the old fuel/oil/kerosene tank looks to be pretty good overall.

One big but shallow dent in the right side towards the back end, but nothing major.

Engines are 5hp Stover, & 2hp Stover that look to be older restorations and should be runnable, then there's a 2hp Taylor that's torn apart but looks to be mostly there except for the mag, a 1 3/4hp Sattley parts engine that's 'mostly there', and another small parts engine that's barely there that I didn't look at close enough to see what it was. Sale bill said there was also a 7hp Ottawa on a cart, but I didn't see it there anywhere .... either a 'no-show' or just running late getting there.

There's also a nice Little road grader that we couldn't find a brand name on, a couple Case tractor heads, a pile of Wico & other tractor mags & some carbs, etc., plus the usual assortment of consignment sale junk to dig through.

That looks like a very nice tank! Wish it was closer to me... just what I'd need...an oil tank and a grader..
I'll be curious to see what it goes for.

Last oil tank like that I saw locally (about 2 miles from home) 20 years ago brought $1,800.00

I'll try my best to get the prices for you on the tank & grader.

Oil tank went for $375.00 and is going to Pearl City IL to Robert Block, who has already restored a couple nice old wagons including these two that were at the Threshing Show in Freeport last weekend.

Road Grader went for $420.00 but I didn't see who got it.

The 5hp Stover, I think was $875.00 the 2hp Stover I believe went back home with the seller. The Taylor, Sattley, & other 'parts engine' went pretty cheap, and the 7hp Ottawa was a No-Show.

Never quite close enough to home! At least it's headed to someone that will do a good job on it!
Thanks!

If you get a chance to get a pic I would really like one, I am restoring one right now but the original box that went on the back is missing and I am going to have to guess at it, Thanks

Sorry, but there was No Box on this one anymore. There was one short piece of one of the side boards, the tank supports, and remnants of the wood wheel hubs, but all the rest of the wood was gone.

Here is one that is coming up for auction this Saturday in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The Auction Company is Brinkman Auctions, and there is online bidding through Proxibid.

Not too sure about the paint job...

That auction had some nice stuff! I wonder what the wagon brought, I couldn't find a price. I took some decent pics of the remains of the lettering on an original Standard Oil wagon if someone needs them. I just bought an oil wagon for myself and it turned out to be a FINA instead of SO. I didn an internet search and found nothing, anyone seen a FINA before? Thanks

Here is a nice period picture of a horse drawn gasoline tanker. The small sign by the front wheel says "HAVOLINE OIL". It is in front of a KING automobile dealer. Kind of ironic, a horse pulled tanker delivering gas for automobiles. Must be in the middle teens. The KING had a V-8 engine from 1915 to the end in 1923.

The boxes for these oil wagons were somewhat a different size according to wagon size I just restored a Sohio oil wagon can give you measuremants of that box if that would be of any help .

Colors are wrong and the seat is not built correctly.Should have a name lettered on side of tank also.

Welcome aboard.

I can't tell you a whole lot about them myself, and the older gentleman that bought the one at the Dakota Sale Barn auction isn't on this site, but maybe some of the other posters on this thread may be able to help you out.

Just incase anyone's wondering how the oil tank turned out that sold at the auction last September....

Here's a couple shots of it at the Threshing Show in Freeport Illinois this weekend.

That turned out very nice, I have restored several but sadly non of the Standard ones were for myself. I sure would like one to go with my truck. Two of them I restored had serial numbers on the tank and I wonder if anyone out there has Standards records so you could find where the wagons were orignally shipped? Both of them had been originally pained silver with the same type of logo as the the one above only with slightly different stripes, both wagons had differnt sripes and one had an ad for Rayo lamps that I believe Standard was pushing about 1915? Great wagon, be proud of it!

Avery -

Do you have any pictures of the wagons you restored that you could post? Also - what was the location of the s/n on the tank - I'd like to check my wagon and see if it has one in the same place.

Tom
