1954 Rare TEXACO KEY HOLE PORCELAIN SIGN Gas Station Truck Door Petroleum Oil From Titusville PA -- Place of First Oil Well -- CLEAN N O R E S E R V E !!!- and -Combined Shipping O.K.UP For sale Here Is a Really Clean, Well Kept 1954 TEXACO PORCELAIN SIGN . . . . Between Excellent and Mint Condition. I Found It Stored in an Old Titusville Home Garage With Some Other Stuff.
Short History of Tri County Petroleum . . . First Established in 1928, Primarily a Seller of Lubricants To the Local Businesses in the Nearby Pennsylvanian Counties of Warren, Venango and Crawford . During the 1950's Tri County (Incorporated By This Time) Owned a Small String of Gas Stations and a Distribution Service. One of the Gas Stations Was Situated in Titusville, Pennsylvania, a TEXACO Station. (Titusville , By the Way, Is the Birthplace of the First Oil Well). And This Sign Came Out of a Titusville House Garage That Is Owned By a Man Whose Father Once Was Manager in That Station Until the Early-1970's When Both the Station and Tri County Petroleum Went Belly-Up. Since Then, Some Other Oil-Related Corporation Has Purchased the Name and Is Operating In This and Neighboring States With What I Understand To Be An Oil and Gas Well Drilling Consultancy Company.
I Was Told, Too, That This TEXACO Sign Was Designed To Be Put On the Drivers' Side Door of a Delivery Tanker Truck. I Don't Know About That, But It Sounds, Well, I Don't Know.
