$142.00 $177.50

The rustic and distressed one-gallon Eagle Manufacturing Company gas can is in good condition. While it could hold fuel, it is being offered in this listing as a decorative advertising collectible. According to references, the particular Eagle logo on this can reveals that it was produced circa 1950's. The rustic and distressed red and white have now become more of a pinkish-red and off-white tone due to age and wear. Along with the intact screw-on cap and yellow air-vent, there is a red "EAGLE" plug in the end of the flexible rubbery-plastic "EAGLE" hose. While many of the older cans have a flexible metal hose that was most likely a replacement, it appears to be much more rare to find the rubbery-plastic hose still intact - especially with the plug. Both sides of the can have "CAPACITY 1 U.S. GALLON" under the rim with "0.833 IMP. GALLON 3.785 LITERS" just above the EAGLE logo that has "NO. 1001" inside. While both sides also have "GASOLINE FILLER" in all caps below the Eagle logo, one side has a bar code near the bottom and the other has "EAGLE MANUFACTURING COMPANY WELLSBURG, W. VA. MADE IN U.S.A." near the bottom. The ends of the can both have three "white-background" sections covering "INSTRUCTIONS," "CAUTION," and "DANGER".

Please note that screen resolution and/or original lighting could cause the colors to appear lighter or darker than actual. Also, while the can is empty, there is still a residual odor left over which is consistent with gas cans. In addition, while gasoline could be put in this can, the aging rubbery-plastic hose along with the rustic metal can may not be suitable for storing and/or transporting gasoline.

There are no breaks, cracks, holes, or repair places on this gorgeously distressed and rustic one-gallon Eagle Manufacturing Company gas can. There are some vintage wear, age, and rub marks on the can - mainly in the form of rustic distress due to age and wear. Also, as previously noted, the original red and white colors have become more pinkish-red and off-white due to the aging and weathering process. While the can has been cleaned with soap and water, there is still a residual odor inside the can that could supposedly be removed with a combination of white vinegar, baking soda, and hot water if so desired at some point in the future. The flexible rubbery-plastic off-white and discolored hose does show signs of distress and wear consistent with its apparent age. In addition, there are areas of rustic patina and/or surface rust on the can - mainly on the top and bottom. The slight sheen or wet look on the metal is due to the can being sprayed with WD-40 in order to better preserve the freshly washed exterior.

The decorative possibilities for this gorgeously distressed and rustic Eagle GASOLINE FILLER gas can are many. The display case or open collectibles shelf would be enhanced by the addition of this Eagle No. 1001 advertising collectible. Also, the man-cave or game-room would welcome this distressed and rustic Eagle gas can for its rural industrial farmhouse charm and aesthetically attractive finish. In addition, the growing collection of advertising memorabilia and souvenirs would increase in value and interest upon the arrival of this rustic and distressed Eagle GASOLINE FILLER gas can.

The collector will appreciate this aged and worn one-gallon Eagle Manufacturing Company gasoline can for its good condition, intact screw-on cap and air-vent, aesthetically attractive finish, rural industrial-farmhouse charm, and gorgeous overall appearance.

The rustic and distressed one gallon Eagle Manufacturing Company gas can weighs approximately 14 oz.

The gorgeously distressed rustic advertising can measures approximately 9.5" tall to the top of the rim and 10.25" tall to the top of the handle x 6 5/8" wide x 4 1/8" deep.

The overall height of the can including the flexible plastic hose measures approximately 14.5" tall.

***Free Shipping in the USA

***Shipping will include insurance

***Shipping for Everywhere Else on the planet:

If you are from outside the United States and you wish to purchase this product put in your correct address and it should populate a quote. If a shipping cost cannot be populated outside of the United States it is possible that the item is too big to be shipped or it is listed for local pickup only. However, please check with me to make sure as sometimes there could be system errors. If you have further questions concerning shipping outside of the USA please contact me.

***Note on Measurements: All measurements are taken and described as close as possible. Where only an approximate measurement is available we will put approximately in the listing.

***Our Measurements for clothing are taken with the garment laying flat with closures fastened - zippers are zipped and buttons buttoned.

***The Bust measurement is obtained by measuring across the flat chest of the garment from armpit to armpit and then multiplying that number by two. To get the chest measurement simply divide the Bust by two.

***We clean our vintage inventory of surface dirt and dust before we list it on our site. We would not want to receive something dirty so we are not going to send our customers something with original dust or dirt. Therefore, after shipping we generally recommend all items be cleaned before use. This is not always because they are considered unclean but simply to make you aware of the possibility of needing to be cleaned after shipping and handling. This does three things: (1) It helps you know your item, (2) It helps you ensure your item is clean according to your standards, and (3) It removes any dust or grime that may have come from the shipping and delivery process.

***Unless noted in the description, we normally do not polish or repaint our inventory as many of our customers prefer the vintage patina look over a new painted or polished appearance.

***Please pay close attention to the pictures as they may show more than I may be able to explain.

***Please note that sometimes we enhance our pictures for sharpness and clarity.

***We aim to be good stewards of our planet; therefore, we may use or reuse boxes and/or packing that are clean and ship worthy.

***The year of production or year-it-was-made is an estimate based on experience, similar items, and/or appearance.

***Textiles and Fabrics such as linens, tapestries, clothing, tablecloths, or simple craft materials may be wrinkled or have lines upon arrival as they are folded for shipping. It is recommended they be laid out or hung up.

***As is common with pre-owned items they could have little marks that are not so easily detectable - we refer to these as vintage wear and rub marks. While I do personally inspect each item, I can miss small marks that may not show up with regular inside light. That being said, I try to be very picky and careful to make sure the details are explained truthfully, honestly, and upfront.

***Virtually all pre-owned items have vintage wear and rub marks. This is simply a term that we have coined to point out that because: (1) they are older, (2) most likely they are not in their original plastic, wrapping, or packaging, (3) have been stored, (4) transported, (5) and handled - they are very likely to have little, small, or slight discolorations, marks, places, wear, etc. Hence, this is why we often have longer descriptions. We try very hard to make sure you know what we know.
