I scored a rusty passenger side 36 Ford Truck Door to hang in my garage. I’m thinking of sending it off to a local guy who does really good free hand paint work. I’m going back and forth between Texaco to match my current stuff or Indian Motorcycle any pics and or ideas welcome.

Personally I'd go with the Texaco myself. I have lots of Indian Motorcycle stuff; also I may be a bit biased though when it comes to nostalgia stuff like this.
Last picture is one of my pumps - Restored Tokheim Model 39 Texaco Pump.
I'm still looking for a vintage Texaco sign that's in decent shape to display beside it.

Couple pic's that I found on the net; not of a 36 Ford but may give you a couple of ideas.

So I had a chance to do some serious looking over on it I found out it was an old Pabst truck if you look closely you can see the outlining of the letters. This old truck was bought and towed from Indiana to Ohio. There was a Pabst distribution center n Indiana.

So Now that I was able to clean it up to put anything else on it but Pabst would be a sin. My gas pump was manufactured in 1947 and door came from a 36 Ford. During WW2 this old truck could have brought beer to our soldiers at home on leave and that warms my heart. The company that it could have came from is still in business. I called them today and they are gonna try to send me some old pics.

I think you answered your own question...…. do the Pabst Blue Ribbon thing. Be different from the other garage art.... don't follow the crowd, it shows some class
