You will sometimes still hear these tanks referred to as "Moon tanks", so called because Jerry Moon sold them early on. The company logo was those 'Moon Eyes' that I'm sure you've seen before. He also made the "Moon Discs" wheel covers and other assorted hot rod parts back when.
The 'Moon' and 'Moon Equipped' decals were very popular years ago.
yes I have a never used brand new set of moon discs for vw beetle collecting dust in the original box, they are very cool. I wish I had the decal.
