I do like the memoribilia stuff especially the small cans . I know Guido collects these as well and I was wondering about just how many variations there are . I'm not really interested in the paper labelled paint cans but lean more towards the painted on label cans . I'm showing a pic of my small cans ...what other ones aren't here that I'm missing ...pics would be great !

2R5,

There are literally hundreds of differnt cans, bottles, etc. One way to get an idea of some of the available items is to look in the backs of some Studebaker car or truck Owners Manuals, if you have any.

I'm sure others will post pictures of their collections. Mine are all packed away since I don't have any display cabinets to keep them in (they get dusty and are a bear to clean when you have a bunch<G>).

The can of general purpose oil, one sold on E-bay at $489.00 they are very rare. As to what you are missing
ThunderBolt Motor Conditioner (TMC)
Kleen Treet
Miracal Power
Brake Fluid - Red label
Motoroil - Red label
Basically every "white" label can was alao done in red label and some showed up in Blue and Yellow.

There are also variations in the word Studebaker. Some like Kleen Treet had bot SP logo and a script version

Very impressive Bondo. A few of yours I've never seen. Does anyone have any pictures of the display that was set up at the 2002 SB Int'l Meet? The guy is from PA. I took lots of pictues of it, but of course I can't find any. He set of a display that looked like a mid 1950's Studebaker Parts Dept. He had what appeared to be thousands of cans, bottles and ect. Maybe Leonard will have a picture or two.

I do not have the penetrating oil. From what I gather, I am missing a whole bunch of stuff. The Lustre Cream stuff came in three grades.
The red can motor oil came with different tops.

I forgot one can in my collection
http://bondobilly.com/55gal.jpg

The drum is decorated exactly as the one quart can, all the wording is identical. Totally amazing in the sense that they went to such lengths to decorate a drum of oil.

Based on the "script" logo, and the can construction I am saying late 30's early 40's. I have a tire pressure guage from the 30's the look is the same.

However, I note no one having a can of "Studebaker Guaranteed Rear-Main-Bearing Seal Stop Leak." That's understandable; every last one was bought and consumed while the cars were on the road!

(A little levity, there; I've never seen such a product either...) :DBP

TMC came in two style of cans, one with the SP logo and one with the script. For a company that was always nearly on the rocks, they spent a fortune on packaging product. Nothing was ever the same. I am still trying to find out when and WHY they went with that misrable blue and yellow labeling.

I was thinking of getting an old polish, oil, tar remover, brake fluid or anti-freeze (I'm not picky) can to put in the trunk for display in my Avanti.

It need not be perfect but I'd like it to be pretty decent looking (the cheaper the better).
Empty is okay...in fact, probably better than full.

Anyone have a duplicate 63-era can they'd be willing to sell?

The stuff is always on E-bay and the prices are actually dropping. Some of the stuff when E-bay started was going for $100 or more a can, and up and until recently $35 to $60 was the norm.

The pictures of the Tar & Road Oil Remover brings back a memory. On one trip to South Bend in my 1953 Commander Starliner, I must have gotten behind a truck with a diesel fuel leak. When I got to South Bend, my '53 looked like it had a flame job. I bought several cans of that Tar & Road Oil Remover and washed the car down with it. I then waxed the car before concours day.

There is one huge problem with those air mattresses, once you remove them, you cannot get them back in the tube.

One thing I forgot to explain was the container is also the air pump for it. There is a fitting at the top which screws into the mattress and you "pump the can" like a bicycle pump. It also states it can be used at the beach as a floating bed.

The large drum (what ever size 55, 28, gal) has to be the CATS MEOW when it comes to collectible cans.[:p]

Thanks to everyone who posted pictures, now I know what to keep an eye out for. I've started my collection with one can.

That was one of the more interesting E-bay auctions about 8 to 10 years ago. It was up on Ebay for quite sometime and was not getting any bids. I e-mailed the seller and asked if I had someone pick it up would he "protect it". IFIRC he had an opening bid of $100.

I won it for the $100 and then sent a UPS Pick Up tag to the seller. He wrapped it in cardboard, and placed the yellow pick up ticket on it. I think it took 5 days to arrive.

In speaking with the seller, he said his maibox was full with possible bidders asking about shipping, and possible shipping costs.

What happened was everyone was thinking that shipping would be astronomical in cost and did not bid. When I got my UPS weekly bill the 55 gallon drum cost me $114 for the shipping.

Under today's UPS pricing structure I think it would possibly run about $400 or more as they now base their fees not only on weight, but on the amount of "space" an item takes up.

A few months ago I purchased a gas tank, and while it does not weigh much, the shipping charges were somewhere in the area of $169. Bob can correct me if I mis-spoke.

The drum is very interesting. I cannot figure out why Studebaker would go to all the effort to decorate the drum as they did. If you have a 1 quart or 5 quart can of Studebaker Motor Oil you know there is a bunch of reading material on the back of the can. The 55 gallon drum has all the same text and logos as does a 1 quart can.

Did work for Yoo Hoo beverages for aboout 96 days. I was given that job in lieu of a job woking on Mission Impossible. The father of the producer Bruce Geller owne a large stake in Yoo Hoo. When his son died in the airplane crash, he gave me the job at Yoo Hoo. I had to go from one super market to another to plead for extra facings, and bribe store mangers by putting oone case in their cars for every case they allowed on the floor. The other part of the job was to visit people who got sick drinking the stuff, and try and make them stop the lawsuits by offering cash.

I hated the job, so I would call in everday, make up a phony log and drive up to the airport and fly. They caught me, and fired me over the phone. Stuff tasted bad back then, probably still tastes bad today.
