  • Oil and Paint Cans

    If anyone collects old oil or paint cans or even STP cans does it matter if they are empty or full? I just bought a mixed box of some old Studebaker paint cans all with the paint still in them. I will empty one because it looks like it has a small leak on the bottom. I was just wondering what collectors prefer. Thanks Bob

    One of the paint cans wouldn't possibly be the 63 Rose Mist would it? I would love to have that one!

        Hi Bob
        I collect both and many are full. never opened. That is preferred but empty is also good. Condition and rarety is most important to value.

            I don't have any for sale I was wondering the best way to keep these cans. I would upload a photo but I don't have a Photobucket or other outside account. Thanks for the info.

              I usually use a liquid car pollish on my cans to preserve the finish.
