former station
Livermore, CA
The former station was built in 1933 as the Vernloyd Service Station and Garage. It has been restored and is now decorated with Flying A signs and pumps. I don't know what brand was sold here originally. The building is now used as the office for Christopher Martin Motorsports. The bay building next door (bottom row right above) was obviously built much later. It is painted in the same color scheme and houses the Tri Valley Car Care & Smog Center. [map]

former station
San Francisco, CA
This former station was built in 1926 as the Sunset Service Station. By the 1940s, it was operating as a Union 76 station and a Pontiac dealership. By the 1960s, it was a Mohawk station. There were originally glass globes on top of the posts. The building has been vacant and surrounded by chain link fencing for decades. It is believed to be owned by the City.

West Sacramento, CA
This former station in Alameda appears to be from the 1920s or 1930s. The building now houses Royal Auto Repair. [map]

This former station in West Sacramento was built in 1934. It is known as Bertagna's Standard Station. The building has been vacant since at least 2006. [map]

former station
Bakersfield, CA
This former station was built in 1936. In 1989, the building was donated to the Kern County Museum where it is now located. It was restored in 1993. I don't know if this station ever sold Union 76 gas or if that was just the brand chosen for the restoration.

former station
Newcastle, CA
This former station was built around 1930. It is now fenced off and the property appears to be used for storage. For more, see this website. [map]

former station
Vallejo, CA
This building appears to be a former station. It might have operated as a car dealership as well. The building now houses G&M Foreign Car Repair. [map]

replica station
Los Angeles, CA
former station [gone]
San Francisco, CA
This replica station in Los Angeles is located at the Petersen Automotive Museum. It was based on a 1929 Richfield station.

This former station in San Francisco was supposedly built in 1931 as a Gulf station. It was still functioning as a 76 station as late as the 1970s and possibly into the 1980s. Around 2001, this structure was moved to its current location in town to save it from demolition. There was another building, a service bay I assume, that was not saved. This station now shelters a trailer for "What's Up Dog", a hot dog stand. For more, see this website. In 2015, the structure was moved to storage while the developers of the site and the Planning Department try to find a new location for it.

Coast station
Pleasanton, CA
This Coast station was built in 1931 as a Shell station. It was an Arco station in the 1980s. For more, see this website. [map]

Karl's Smog and Repair is housed in a former gas station. The building appears to be from the 1930s. [map]

The Dream Cars Auto Club building was built around 1925 as a gas station and service garage. The office was meant to look like a Moorish castle. [map]
