The pump is a Boyle Dayton. If there is a handle on the back side it is a 83. If it does not have a handle it is a 87. Both made starting in 1926. Next to the pump is an oil dispenser. Can not tell the make. The Oil/gas cart looks like a Boyle Dayton 121. Made in 1919. All the information comes from Jack Sim's pump book. Richard

Looks like your new here, so I'll try to help you out the best I can.

The pump, which is very nice, is called a 10 gallon visible. It is made by Boyle Dayton and is from approximately 1925ish (that model number does not appear in my date book for gas pumps, or I could tell you the exact years it was made).

The item next to it is an oil dispenser, commonly referred to as a Lubester. It held oil to fill reusable glass bottles at the gas station for customers to purchase and put in their cars. You just turn the crank and fill up the bottle. The round lid was opened, so over flow would drain back into the tank. However they also held other fluids, such as kerosene, etc. the one you have appears to be a 30 gallon.

The last item, (the portable wheel tank) is similar to the 'Lubester' but I don't know too much about it. It looks like a Boyle Dayton brand to me. Maybe someone else will chime in to help you out.

Richard is correct...Boyle-Dayton on both the gas cart and the visible pump. Dayton was a different manufacturer all together. You see A LOT of those visible pumps on the west coast.

Richard, I see you replied way before me. I don't think that was showing up when I responded.... or, more likely, I was just too tired from working midnights and didn't notice it.

Either way, hopefully all of this helps him out.

Thank you so much for the information, I didn’t know what something like this would be worth.
