Check out this restored Wayne 71 with an original Richfield globe for $4600. What do you think?

I would say it is a Decent buy, a month or so ago a Unrestored one sold for just shy of $4k if I remember right. Needs a little tweaking to allign the display door and the right style of rubber for the add glass you shouldn't be able to see the rubber like you can. Oh maybe I would clean up the computer a little. But it is a Dandy!!!!

IF the globe & body are worth $500, that puts the restored 71 @ $4100. NOT A BAD BUY
I remember a few tears ago the 71's were selling @ $5,000 unrestored.

I would say that is a real good buy. Phil is close or right on the last one that sold unrestored. If I remember correctly it even had some damage or a big dent on one side.

All easy fixes though.. Weld up Base, Sides look exactly the same as Wayne 70 sides not to hard to find them.

Well guys. Guess what? I bought the Wayne 71. I was able to get it MUCH cheaper. He told me it is an orginal globe on a metal body. That must be worth $500 alone? Thanks to those I asked about it. I appreciate the help and support.

I got shipping from Allied Van Line to Illinois. NH to IL for $450. They wrap and take it directly to my home. Thanks to Old Gas for the idea of contacting the van line.

I can not figure out why no one else was interested? Are finished pumps harder to sell then unrestored pumps?

Restored pumps can be very difficult to sell at times. They never seem to be the right colors for the buyer.

One other thing. I may be in real trouble. My wife does NOT know about the pump.

Wait till the van pulls up. I hope I won't be sleeping in the barn afterwards. If I get lucky, the van may come by when my wife is gone and she never sees it.

This is a fun hobby but have to be careful not to get in trouble with the wife!!

Congratulations on a great buy! I was wondering why he relisted it and shortly after that it was gone! I was watching it closely as were a lot of other people and I really can't say why it didn't go off sooner? You sure couldn't buy an original and restore it for that money! Heck, you're into it cheap enough that you can change the colors if you want to!

The thing which reallly helped was getting a moving company to take it. Otherwise, I could not buy it.

Gasoildude, I may need a place to sleep in your basement.
