A rarity in the world of 2 gallon petrol cans!
1930 Racing Shell stencil can. Unlike the embossed versions this type uses a stencil painted lightening bolt each side and an ‘R’ to the top panel, on a very ordinary can, to denote its contents. A similar grade to high octane type fuels today.
In excellent original condition, the only way to have one of these cans.
