Wayne 276 Then & Now - Wed Jul 10 2019 05:38 PM

I hope to get my 276 put back together someday. These photos show how it looks today and what it looked like around ninety-five years ago.It was likely the grand opening.

Best of luck with your project. Has this pump been in your family all these years?

I bought it from the original family around 2014. It got hit by a car around 1980 so the lower section and the two internal pipes are pretty tweaked.

As a fan of Texaco, I think this is a neat project. I have not seen a price sign like the one in the original photo. Keep us updated.

I’ve had those, and moved them (I just sold one at CTO). I honestly wonder if the car that hit it is in worse shape than the pump.....?? Lol. Those suckers are heavy and solid.

Good luck with your project. Post more pics when it’s done.

A big thank you to Mike H. for selling me the parts I needed to get my 276 back on its feet. I spent the last week doing surgery on the beast. I put a Gill globe on it to pretty it up. If anyone has a beat up period correct globe for sale please shoot me a private message. I don’t think I’m going to do a restoration. It can continue to rust in peace. If anyone can re-post the sideways photos right side up I’d appreciate it. The gas caps in the one photo are ones I found in the same spot when I got the pump opened for the first time. The signs are original to the pump and an unusual size at 17”. My lovely wife was nice enough to pose like the old photo I have. Thanks for taking a look.

I figured out the photo problem and found a photo of how the pump looked when I found it.
