Values of Wayne 70s and Bennet 76 Restored - Fri Oct 20 2017 05:58 PM

Good afternoon from Butte. It's snowing here. I am working on getting some insurance for my oil and gas collection. Need some expert opinions/advice. What do you think is a "fair" retail value for these three pumps (separately) without the globes? Thanks. Alex

Alex, are the pump plates and ad glass original?

For insurance purposes I’d say 5k for the Bennett and 4K/pc for the 70s.

Where did you get that killer Texaco Ethyl decal?? I need a couple of those!

The ad glas on the red Wayne 70 are original and 2 of the Sky Chief are. pump plates are original and the lead signs. I only put one pump plate on each pump. Globes are original, the ethyl has only one lens.
The decal on the Bennet is actually a magnetic sign I had custom made by....geez, now I can’t remember. I will have to think about that. I will post a picture of the magnetic sign. The lead sign is magnetic too.

Here is the "decal". I wanted an original looking decal and couldn't find one. Texaco didn't make a porcelain pump plate for this.
I am thinking it was Ron Scobie???? (I can't remember) that made it for me. I sent him some pics and he created it. I had seen this done when a friend had some of the porcelain signs recreated for his A-1 National. He even had the screws pictured on it. From a distance of about 3 feet, I couldn't tell until he reached over and peeled the magnetic strip off.

It finally came to me...T-Way Graphics made the “decals”for me. Just give me 10-20 days and I will remember. LOL

Hi Alex, It snowed here too, the lake was froze, but it isn't anymore. It is always nice to look at your TEXACO stuff. If you put them a bit closer together, you could get more of 'em in the room. LOL. ( Don't tell the boss I said that )
