Long Description:
This dolls house style, former Marathon Gas Station, complete with Marathon Gas pumps, has been reborn as a Dairy King.
The two Marathon Gas Pumps appear to be the genuine refurbished pumps, but no longer pump gas. It would be good if the pumps get a waymarker visit, the serial plate or manufacturer is photographed.

The Dairy King, roof line, doors & windows are bordered by red Neon tubes & an Ice Cream cone glowing brightly at the roof apex.

"It’s probably safe to say that, with the exception of baseball great Mickey Mantle, no other Commerce, Okla. resident is better known globally than Charles Duboise.
As co-owner (along with mother Treva) of the popular Dairy King hamburger joint on Route 66 in downtown Commerce, Duboise has greeted, shaken hands, hugged and even signed with thousands of road travelers from Europe, Russia, Australia and Japan.

Aside from a cheeseburger and soft served cones, the thousands of road travelers who stop at the converted gas station each summer will often purchase a unique, chocolate-chip cookie shaped like the famed Rt. 66 road sign. It’s a design Duboise has patented, along with the metal cookie cutter he shaped with his own hands years ago. “It’s the only Route 66 cookie cutter you’ll find anywhere in the world,” Duboise said proudly. In front of the building hangs a sign that reads: “One and only Route 66 cookies sold anywhere.”" Text Source: (visit link)
