Gasoline Truck replica:  "The Spirit of St Louis was fueled by this type of Standard Oil truck for Charles Lindbergh's historic flight to Paris, May 21, 1927. Lindbergh preferred Standard gasoline, as he found it would give him 'a little more range for the gallon.'" 

Horse-Drawn Tank Wagon replica:  "In the early 1900s, horse-drawn wagons were used to deliver kerosene and other Standard Oil products to grocery and hardware stores."
