6425 Gulf Tank Car
Production: 1956 - 1958
The 6425 Gulf triple-dome tank car was one of only two triple-dome tankers produced by Lionel in the postwar era -- the other being the 6415 Sunoco. Lionels model is a detailed and realistic representation of an actual 70 ton tank car. The 6425 Gulf tank car is hard to locate and generally in less than collectable condition.
Standard features of the 6425 include: painted silver tank, molded black plastic frame, metal handrails, two metal ladders, brakestand with brakewheel, bar-end trucks, two operating couplers plus a filler cap next to each dome. The lettering is always blue.
Additional Detail, Photos & Box Information
The filler caps are the most fragile portion of the tank car. It is quite common to find some -- or all -- of the filler caps broken off of the shell.
Only Known Variation - All 6425s are painted silver with blue lettering.
