Can someone take a look at these and advise:

1) Manufacturer
2) How Old
3) Value as is?
4) if the door can't be found how hard to locate a replacement?

Ok will try to go look at them. Need to see if meters are there and how much rust.
So the next questions you can help a newbie on is
1) How much do you think they would bring if restored
2) are these very popular of should I look for another model?

May wait and hit a few swap meets or IOWA next year

No more than $300 for the one missing the door, and $500 max on the other one. These pumps have a lot of stainless & it can get expensive to buy it all piece by piece.

I have not had much luck selling pumps that I have completely and meticulously restored. So I cant offer my opinion on that.
They are a pretty popular model. Parts are readily available.

I sell that model restored for about $3500. But I'm talking stripped to metal, straightened, multiple primers, painted with clear/buffed everywhere. Hard to make money on restoring out-sourcing the work to others.
