Vintage Harbie

Vintage shots of Harbie the Harbor Oil Company Mascot






Here a shot of the small version mounted on one of the company trucks. I know of only 2 of these figures out in collections and have seen one of them in person




A big Thanks to Vince for sending me these great shots of Harbie in his natural habitat.

Here is a shot of the small version I was lucky to see in person.

I remember seeing one of the big ones out in front of a trailer park in Fullerton. I wonder if it is still there?

I used to live in Beaumont, CA -- the antique dealers there had at least two of them on display but that was in the 70s :)
