Is there a difference in value as whether they're empty of original with product?

TIA

Should be a bit more with the Contents in tact, and unused.

These are probably NOT great for long term display and storage FULL, due the the Acid content in the cleaner portion and even the "Neutralizer" Soda for the rinse is also corrosive enough to possibly eat through the Can over time.

I have heard of people actually USING this Cooling System Cleaner as I have, after 50 or more years though!

Many long time SDC'ers have piles or CASES of it from the Good O'l SASCO Days, so really not too rare, at least to SOME Members. :rolleyes:

I bought a couple of cases from JP fifteen or twenty years ago and came across them today. I loved the old non-PC stuff as it really worked. The cases stored well and yes, I guess that I'll sell some of 'em to folks who know how well that stuff works.

I actually need a bit of that stuff as my '52 Champion has somewhat of a plugged radiator-- gets hot on longer freeway drives. Anyone willing to sell me a bit of it?

Oxalic acid (cleaner), baking soda (neutralizer). Oxalic acid crystals available as wood bleach...
