A red Studebacker Petrol Tanker with silver studs along the top of the tank.

The red colour was associated with the Mobilgas brand on and the later renumbered 440 makes the connection obvious with the company name printed in bold white lettering on both sides of the tank. This earlier version, less helpfully, only has "Petrol" in smaller lettering with no manufacturer identifier. Castrol and Esso versions were available in different colours too. 1952-4.
