POTM "Pump of the Month" April 2017

POTM "Pump of the Month" April 2017 - Sat Apr 01 2017 11:00 AM

The pump of the month this month is the Wayne 70. I wanted to do another fairly common pump to keep the participation up. Last month we had fantastic responses. Way to go everyone! I think one of the great designs, simple, but yet eye catching. The Wayne 70 was first introduced in 1937, and they were made up until 1960. Although it was not really art deco like the Wayne 60, it is still a clean design. Some would say it was the successor of the Wayne 60. I am also going to include the Wayne 876, which is the clockface version.

Here is a list as follows:
-Wayne 70: 1937-1946. "Extenda-Hose" on cable. Came with 2 or 4 ad glass versions.
-Wayne 70-C: 1937-1941. Standard 4 ad glass pump with sight glass above face.
-Wayne 876: 1937-1946. Non-computing pump, 4 ad glass panels.
-Wayne 70: 1947-1960. Sight glass moved to top of pump with ad glass right under it, 2 ad glass pump.

This information is credited to Jack Sim and his pump book.

Post what you have everyone, and lets all have a good April!

Here is one of my Wayne 70's. Shown is the pump itself, along with a few pictures of the sight glass assembly, lighting assembly, computer, and even the pumping unit.

The top picture shows the computer of my brownish colored pump. The next picture is one of my favorite pumps in the green, my other Wayne 70. And the last picture is another Wayne 70 that I used to own...

Here is a picture of a "younger" me when I first started collecting gas pumps. I had a call from a friend about a pump that was out in his trees, that I could have for $50 if I would come and get it. I wasn't too interested in a beat up parts pump, but the price was right and I had the time, so off I went to get it. We pulled it out of the trees on a piece of plywood and I was extremely pleased to find one of the earliest Wayne 70's ever made. It had the oversized sight glass, and the pot metal window frames and was unlike all of the other 70"s I had ever seen. Jack Sims checked the serial number for me, and said it was one of the earliest ever made.
We looked thru his old shop for anything else I might like and were especially looking for the "light" that went on top? I was puzzled by the "light" part of his statement, but thought we had better try to find it anyway? We searched for over an hour, and found a few small items like cans and nozzles, but no "light"? Just as we were walking out of his shop, I happened to look up into the rafters and spotted a light shade on top of some lumber! The rest is history--I still have the "light", but it sits on top my Wayne 60 showcase. I had to pay extra for the "light", by the way! LOL

Great thread and photos! Here are a couple of Wayne 70s of mine. Thank to KW Frith for the CA tip on finding the Chevron Supreme original pimp still hooked up and working! The station lighter for it came out of Kansas found on a farm.
Happy Pumping,

Rob

Here is one of the two Wayne 70s in my collection. It is a west coast pump with an explosion proof station lighter. The glass jar is missing.

Great second choice Braden. 70's have always been one of my favorites. Here is my 70 that came from a small airfield NE of Wichita in Benton, KS.

Here is one of mine. The aged, cracked, yellow and red paint looks absolutely great in person. If you look close, you can make out the outline of a shell and the word "SHELL" on both doors.

I had a hard time finding out what the square below the shell would have said. The only thing I have to go off of, is a picture that I found on Google images (last photo), but the large word "SHELL in the logo doesn't match.

The square on your pump would have said "GASOLINE", "PREMIUM" or "AVIATION"

Re: POTM "Pump of the Month" April 2017 - Tue Apr 04 2017 02:49 AM

There is two versions of the non-computing Wayne 70. One is the clockface and the other is a Non-computing Veeder-Root. There is no variator, this sale wheels or total sales wheels on the non-computing Veeder-Root.







This is a high volume pump that would have been used at a truck stop or some place were a lot of gas was needed in one pumping. Notice the four wheel early Veeder-Root. Jack`s book shows a pump with visi guage like this one but it says it is a non-comping pump model 577-R. Not sure if this pump is original or converted.

Thanks Matt. I went out to see if I could figure it out, and it appears to show up better in the picture than in person...lol. I'll have to spend more time to try to figure it out later, as it's blocked in by another pump right now. But I appreciate the info.

It looks like you can see the last three letters "IUM" which would be PREMIUM.

Here are a couple 70s I had when I started collecting in 1995. The brown one was $150.00 and the Union 76 was $200.00. Today that seems dirt cheap but back then that is all they were worth.

Re: POTM "Pump of the Month" April 2017 - Sat Apr 08 2017 03:29 AM

Way to go Braden! Thanx for doing this!
Wayne 70 was my first pump and they will always hold a special place for me.
Story is that I saw a four window 70 for sale on CL for $350 but it was about 100+ miles away so I contacted the seller and let them know I was on my way with cash.
It was a long winding road to get there and the truck was not acting right adding time to the trip but finally got there and called the seller who said, "didn't you just pick it up??"
So, I went home with a empty bed but about a week later I got the call to come and get this one... It was a 1937 Wayne 70 original Flying A in much better shape for only $150!
Love em,,,




Here is another that I had. Original Chevron from around 1945.

Not sure of the model, but here is 1/2 of a wayne 70 twin. I did see another 1/2 about 15 years ago but passed as I figured I would never find the other half. Then bought this one 2 years ago but still looking for the other half. Anyone got one with an oddball base that looks like this one.
Nice pump with original paint and ad glasses.
