This clever one gallon oil can was made by the Huffman Mfg co. in Dayton, Ohio. It solved a common problem. Drivers complained that when the service station put oil in their cars they dripped oil on the shiny paint of their cars. So this one features a flexible spout which is held up on the side by a hook. When the lever by the handle is pressed it releases the hook holding the spout which could then be adjusted to fill whatever needed filling without dripping oil and offending the guy with the expensive Duesenberg . The company logo, etc and patent information are embossed on the front. There was once a decal on the back but it wore off long ago. The can was once copper clad but at least half of the copper has worn off exposing the galvanized metal below. The effect creates a really great patina with no rust. It stands about 11 1/2 inches tall and is 7 inches in diameter at the base.

It seems one gallon cans made by Huffman are a bit rare. Does that make this a "must have"?
