Oil companies for IM 8K tank

Ted Culotta put together a nice field guide to steam-era tank cars here:

As for the IM 8k ACT Type 27, most of those went to SHPX, with some to GATX (mostly ex-Canton Tank Car) and a scattering to a few other owners. Having said that, the tank itself can be mounted on frames from Tichy (1923 SSC-built Gulf Oil), Tangent (early-mid 1920s General American Tank Car), or SC&F (1920s Standard Tank Car).
