Hello everyone,
I just wanted to post this to see what you guys thought and if you had any more information regarding the pump. It's a 10 gallon visible that is a self service and coin operated. It is fully restored and we should get it back to the museum in a few weeks. I believe it was branded as Starkey Self Serve. If you all have any information on this I would love to hear some and what you all think about our recent purchase.

Here's a start. This thread discusses a Starkey pump. One restored and one that DB owned and sold.

In my Gas Pump ID book (now called the Gas Pump Bible) I have identified four different Stakey's. Personally I have looked at and taken pictures of two different ones that are in a collection in Evansville, Indiana.

Well this one will make it 3 and will be on display in the Dream Car Museum once it gets here. Are you able to say who's place you were at to see those other Starkeys. We have been through several major collections in Evansville and not seen any Starkeys yet.

Unfortunately we also tried to purchase a couple cash recorder pumps from the same collector but we could not meet on price.

Denver based, first coin operated gas pump for 24hr service. Tin signs can be found often. They all are missing an ugly snow Schroeder. Gas o mat was the last to use them
