A.F. Product Gallery: #958

Manufacturer:American Flyer
Manufacturer ID:958
Category:Tank Cars (1-dome)
Road Name:Mobilgas
Road Number:958
Year Introduced:1957
This model is an uncataloged item from 1957 that has two variations. The two variations deal with the date on the side of the car. The first reads "NEW 4-51" as shown in the photo while the second reads "NEW 6-51". In the 1957 catalog, the Mobilgas tank car was listed as #24316 but was not sold in 1957 with #24316 on the car, but instead #958 was produced and sold. One odd thing about the catalog illustration and text is that, while the text states the car/catalog number is #24316, the actual illustration shows #958 on the side of the car.
