Second, it came from a jobbers 1 ft thick catalog that had 100's of inserts from the 1970's through the early 80's. Third, I've looked up old advertising with this product and packaging, and they are all from this time frame and era. Lastly there is a clearly displayed Effective January 1, 1978 date on the top of the Dealers Price List sheet.This is a really cool RARE and HARD TO FIND jobbers sell sheet and what a great collectors piece. In great condition, the sheet is clean, bright and colorful with sharp edges. The Dealers Price List sheet is in similarly good condition as the accompanying catalog. If you have a cool shop, garage, store, collection or you just like old vintage advertising. If so, than this would look really cool framed on your wall or in your own catalog!A small bit about GUNK and (RSC)In 1924 Mr. I. D. Blumenthal was a traveling salesman in need of repair to his car's radiator. A local tinsmith in Charlotte, North Carolina repaired the radiator with a "magic powder". Impressed with the product, I.D. teamed with the tinsmith and SOLDER SEAL became the first product of Radiator Specialty Company. His brother, Herman, joined the company in 1938 to make it a family run business. When I. D. passed away, Herman became Chairman of the Board, and likewise, later his eldest son, Alan assumed responsibility.In 1931 The Radiator Specialty Company of Canada was chartered. In 1933 the company purchased Golden State Rubber Mills in Los Angeles, California. In 1937 a Charlotte rubber products plant was added and TITESEAL SEALING COMPOUNDS were born. In 1941 LIQUID WRENCH products became part of the line. Radiator Specialty Company later expanded into plumbing products and added a hardware line.In 1958 the Douglas Tools line of augers, hole saws, hammers, levels, and measuring devices, was added. GUNK LABORATORIES was acquired in 1959, resulting in the addition of an entire line of GUNK degreasers -- including ENGINE BRITE -- and cleaning products. The SolderSeal-Gunk logo was formed at that time.Please check out other Jobber Sell Sheets and the rest of our eBay storeby CLICKING HERE!COMBINED SHIPPING ON PAPER CATALOG INSERTS* Media Shipping $2.99 First Item, .30 Cents Each Additional Item* Priority Shipping $7.49 First Item, .30 Cents Each Additional Item* Free Local Pick-Up*This shipping applies only to items with this shipping message included in the listing* R.J Loock History and Our PickThese items were sourced from R.J. LOOCK which was a Baltimore Institution when it came to Automobiles. They operated at the same location : 339-345 N Gay st from 1913 until the neighborhood declined and the last heir retired in 2001. They were not your ordinary cookie cutter automotive parts store like you see today. They were parts distributors as well as jobbers for their own LIGHTNIN Parts line as well as for most of the top brands of the day. They sold: Auto supplies, Replacement parts, Garage equipment, Shop equipment, Tires, Tubes, Oil, Grease, Accessories and they even had a Complete Machine Shop. This may not sound different from an auto zone except Loock was responsible for placing products such as Champion Spark Plugs, Quaker State and Gates belts (to name a VERY few products) into EVERY private and municipal garage that used them in a 5 state area. long before the internet and trade shows, these guys were road warriors that sold stuff the hard way on a massive scale. As the 22 floors of samples that they left behind will attest... thats right... I said 22 FLOORS of Samples! R.J.Loock tried to sell ANY quality product that they thought had a chance . Of course, as jobbers they were responsible for placing advertising in the businesses that they catered to as well.We were lucky enough to purchase salvage rights to this little treasure trove earlier this year. There was no working elevator and the buildings were 4 floors tall with a basement ................................. and they NEVER threw ANYTHING of value AWAY! It took us 2 months full time to sort through and we are just now starting to offer what we have found. If you like high quality out of the box advertising as well as MINT automotive related collectibles, please bookmark us and keep checking back. I think you will be in for a treat.ANDIf you are a beginning collector, theres stuff for you too.
