Product Information

Based on an actual gas station that served drivers on US 66 near Carthage, Missouri, this classic cottage design is typical of filling stations built in many areas during the 1920s and 30s. While the gas station closed in the mid 1980s, the prototype is still standing and is home to a pet grooming business.
 
The kit features laser-cut interior and exterior walls, doors, window frames, trim floor, roofing and sign frames. Extra details include the island, gas pumps, chimney, tire display and a soda machine. Full-color signs and decals based on actual gas station advertising are included to model either a Conoco dealer or an independent named Ernie's. A laser-cut roadside billboard with 4 different automotive product signs is also provided, along with gas price signs appropriate for several eras, including today.
