Hi again guys
I am still on with the the text on the fuel tank and my friend found the attached printed emblem on the tank. I suppose this is the emblem of the manufacturer and my interpretation is AOL Co. Does anyone have the knowledge what company this is.

Hi Jan-Olof,
I believe that's OLACO and I've seen posts in the WW2 and CJ2A jeep forums mentioning them as a manufacturer. Here's one (see second photo down): https://www.thecj2apage.com/forums/olaco-fuel-tank-restoration_topic14362.html

O A L Co., or A O L Co. Yields no relative results in Google searches and it is not listed in any of my M38/M38A1/M170 Parts Manual's Manufacturer's Code Lists.

Jan-Olof,
Here's another photo of the OLACO trademark: https://www.debellajeepparts.com/cjpremiers.htm

Because that's a re-pop tank I'm guessing that it was either made by OLACO still in business today, or OLACO is kaput and whoever made it is using the OLACO trademark without any infringement issues.

I haven't had any luck finding out if the "OLA" in OLACO is an acronym for something or not (assuming CO is short for "Company".

Several of the G503 posts mention an aftermarket producer of the tanks using that raised mark. I could not find any current fuel tank producer by that name. Did find OLACO of Canada, a trucking firm.

You may notice that the Advertising for the OLACO tank on the 3A page contains a "congratulations" to Willys. Those were excerpts from the Dec 9th, 1952 Toledo Blade Newspaper special edition to celebrate the Willys Golden Jubilee. Sometimes referred to as 'Willys Overland Dealer Day', the publication was full size News print, 24 pages long.

Many of the factory scenes featured M38A1 and M38.

It is still the same tank that we talked about some days ago. I am very pleased that you have found information about the manufacturer.
This tank was obviously manufactured in Oct 1964 withh the text on it as below.

Hey guys.
Thanks so much for all nice information I got from a simple fuel tank. This forum is fabulous.

I wish you all the best in 2021.

A - 10-64 begs one more question. The majority of manufacturers use the prefix DOM for ID'g the dat of manufacture. It would clarify the meaning of 10-64 if we knew what " A - " prefix means.

Wes, I really don’t know. The tank comes from one of the “Saudi-jeeps” manufactured 1964, according to the serial number.

Is that tribute available for us on-line to see? Much appreciated!
