I am a new user to old gas and I am seeking some help. I recently purchased a bowser 585 pump. It is my first pump purchase and I came to find out the service station is rarely heard of. I managed to dust off some top layers of paint that were peeling and revealed that it was used by a company called "rocket hi-action gasoline". I can barely decipher the image that is on one of the pump doors. the other door says in black letters "stoveoil". i'd like any help i could get from any knowledgeable sources in regards to this company. I have had a few people tell me that it is a very very rare company. i don't have any emotional attachment to this pump. I'd just like to have a decent looking pump in my garage.
thanks in advance.

Mike sent me a photo of his gas pump. I cropped it to show detail on the Rocket decal.

Here is a "similar" Rocket pump decal I have in my collection. I don't have the "hi-action" decal.
