An EBay ad sure gets everyone’s attention. Just gotta be patient.
It sure is cool!
“Early” is an understatement!

Thanks for the reply. Are you saying eBay would be a good place to market it? Someone suggested Big Iron yesterday. We purchased an old truck stop in Nebraska and this wagon came with the purchase. We have been told this wagon has been parked out front next to the highway far several decades.

EBay is the subject of much derision but the really coolest stuff often ends up there.
Yes, put it on. Auction or buy it now.
I guarantee the Big Iron folks check out EBay.
Again, have patience. Finding the right buyer can take time.

That was the most common of the numerous Standard Oil Wagons, usually under the seat they said "Standard Oil of Indiana" or wherever, in Kansas, they were all Indiana that I have seen. The earliest ones were Dark Green and later on they were all painted Aluminum silver. Usually the box on the back advertised Mica Grease or Rayo Lamps that Eastern Standard Oil owned and was a huge consumer of kerosene. Your wagon looks like an earlier wood hub model, most are solid cast hub like army escort wagon. While not rare, it is a desirable wagon and many had a 3 bow buggy style top on them. Your tank is probably 3 compartment, the oil and kerosene compartments are often good but the gasoline one is always rusted out. Good luck.
