Tokheim 871--FRESH OFF THE FARM - Wed Jan 27 2016 11:42 PM

This Tokheim 871 is fresh off the farm. . .literally! The pump is complete. One of the doors has a small dent in the lower half (as seen in the pics). These pics were made before I dug out around the base. The porcelain base is clean. No cracks. Bright blue! O have not cleaned or removed the motor/pump. The new owner can make the decision to clean or not to clean. The pump is located in Georgia (31091). I can deliver to the Moultrie Swap Meet, Dixie Gas, or Maggie Valley Gas and Oil show. Asking $2800 or best offer.

Looks like good patina. Wash it and add correct (Tokheim) visa-gauge .

Not a farm pump, it originally was a Gulf Oil Co. service station pump. Probably had a outside sight glass at one time.

Made between 1935 and 1938.

Thanks for the clarification, Jack. The pump was originally at a local Gulf station and was later moved to the farm where it's been since the 1950s or so. Sadly, the visiguage is long gone. This pump is practically in my back yard. I've been by this site a million times and never knew there was a pump there. The property recently sold and the new owners contacted me about the pump. I would keep it for my personal collection, but I already have an 871 originally used at my hometown Gulf station. The 871 from the farm is in great condition.
