Texaco Toys

IMG_0343

Die cast toys licensed by oil companies were as common as free soda glasses and Blue Chip Stamps with a fill-up in the 1960s.  Texaco mastered the licensing and marketing of  toy oil company collectibles, including this finely detailed 1913 Model T “C-cab” delivery wagon made by toy collectible company Gearbox in 1997. It measures 8″ in length, was packaged in a “collectible” tin and is valued at around $30 in mint condition.
