Thanks to fellow Woody boater Syd Marsden for sending us in this wonderful un opened Texaco Tanker. And get this, we get to see it as its unpacked for the first time. That’s right, we can see it in all its original color and imperfections from the factory. But first a message from our sponsor.
Texaco Marine and classic boats go together for some reason more than other fuel companies. Esso marine was just in some areas and Texaco was all over the place, and the go to oil of choice for Post War Chris Crafts. So Here we go. Take it away Syd.
Well, thats it. If you have one of these you can see how the stinkers would have been to replicate. And true colors. If it sank in your bathtub or swimming pool, you can see one here now and bring back some wonderful memories. Tanks Syd for sharing your new Holiday toy! Tanks? Thanks? Anyone? GOLD!
And for those wondering what its worth. Well on barret jackson someone paid $840 for one like this in NOS condition. YIKES!
And of course an image of the real thing. Not sure who do give credit to since it shows up on multiple sites. Looks like it had an explosion and several people were killed. Yikes.
