Hmmm, I recall that I have somewhere a 1967 National Geographic with an ad that is pretty cool. It is for Shell service. It shows a mechanic in a service bay working on what appears to be a dark green 1967 Chevelle with a six (just like my car!) O.K., it's not a hot rod but it is a snapshot of what was once a common sight, the local neighborhood service station. I will have to see if I can find it and scan it. Give me a couple of days.

In the meantime, check out this neat old photo in my showroom. If you look closely you can find a '68 Chevelle 300 & a '67 Malibu convertible (click on the photo on the link for a larger view).

Have you done a search engine search?

I typed "60's GAS STATION" into google and got dozens of pages of photos.

Similar results with "60's SERVICE STATION"

Probably the same with "50's" and "70's"

Try Shorpy Photo Archive if you want 100 year old stuff (Sorry no color back then) There's a section called "Service Stations".

They also have a Kodachrome library, but with 100's of photos to look at...

I tried a gas station search but only showed outside pics. I'll try the "60's service station" Thank you, Dave

just throw a bunch of greasy crap and broken parts all over the place and put greasy fingerprints all over the walls. also make sure it smells like a combination of old gear oil and gasoline. there is just nothing quite like the aroma of an old time service station...
it might not be the idealized image you are looking for, but it would be more accurate.

I must be doing something wrong when I try to search Google. I can't seem to come up with the interior photos.

Go to Google page, in the very top of the screen there should be a hyperlink titled IMAGES. Click on that and then input "60's service station" WAALAAA!

Found this on an image search of a local Esso. Not an interior, but check out the prices! And the sad thing is I remember this!

http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...%3Den%26sa%3DG

You might try contacting the site owner and see if they have any interior pics

Me too, I bought lots of gas at that price. My Uncle worked in a Pure station back then. I used to go there an hang out. I still remember he and two other guys rushing out to a car to clean the windshield and rear window, check the oil and sweep the carpet, all for a dollars worth of gas. This was in the late fifties.

Well I found and scanned the 1967 Gulf ad. It was in the April 1967 National Geographic. Click here to see it (click on the photo once you're there for a larger close-up).

Without a doubt it is a '67 Chevelle with a six. It seems as though they tried to disguise the grille, a common thing in those old ads (especially Quaker State ads).

There is a company in Ohio that makes "garage murals". They have one of the interior of a old station that is cool. I will look up the name today and repost.
