    First off, another apology for the non antique but I'm at a loss on these cans. Have searched the internet and can't find them. No idea of rarity or value. I am assuming late 50's since my FIL sold his Gulf station around 1960.

    That particular Gulf logo was used from 1936 - c. 1960. So could be anywhere in between.

    Odd part is you would think I could find some on the web, maybe it's my search terms but having no luck finding them.

    I'm not surprised you can't find them. I bet the only place they'd be is in an old Gulf station owners stuff. :)

    I will throw out a guess: Maybe they were provided to station owners to touch up the colors on their gas pumps or other items on and in their garages.

    I have no doubt your are correct, but I doubt my FIL was the only hoarder of a station owner LOL that thru away almost nothing.
