Winner's Circle Petro is a Curbside Classic
Not too long ago, prototypes for the Walthers Cornerstone Winner's Circle Petro gas station could be found at every busy city intersection and along most major highways.
Introduced in the late 1930s, box-style gas stations like Winner's Circle Petro sprang up from coast to coast and remained a standard well into the 1950s. Combining the office, restrooms and service bays into one structure, they provided a uniform, neat appearance that attracted motorists. Lots of windows made them bright and cheerful, as did the enameled steel walls decorated in company colors. Although newer stations have taken their place, many survive today and of those some have been repurposed as independent garages, body shops, retail stores and offices. A few have even been converted into private homes!
Authentic styling looks great on any vintage or modern street scene. Three styles of pumps are included to match your era, along with colorful decal signs for the finishing touch. The finished Winner's Circle Petro model measures: 4 x 6 x 2-1/16" 10 x 15 x 5.8cm
