Why purchase this Gulfpride Racing Formula G Composite Oil Can?

Fuel your automotive themed collection with this Gulfpride Racing Formula G Composite Oil Can. Half a century after it was made and filled, this can remains full. New old stock, it was intended to be sold, but it never was. The can weighs roughly three pounds and measures about 6". This piece was made by Gulf Co. in Houston, Texas and dates back to the 1970's.

The 1970's was a time of transition in the United States. The Vietnam War raged well into the decade, continuing to tear Americans apart. The view of Americans toward their government also changed. This was due in part to the release of The Pentagon Papers and in part due to the Watergate scandal that caused President Richard Nixon to be the first Commander in Chief to resign his position. The decade also had its share of economic upheaval, with President Richard Nixon taking the US off the gold standard and stagflation causing major struggles into the early 1980's. This oil can offers a particularly poignant connection to the period given the high price of gas that resulted from OPEC's oil embargo against the United States.
