Well I got this idea from Vernmonter, and i figured i would start the thread. Coops427 36b is an awesome looking unrestored pump. So if you get time post a picture of your pumps that are unrestored and being displayed in you house, shop, garage, or outside. Here is one of mine its a Tok 39 tall. The signs, add glass and globe are all originals. The add glass and signs were on the pump when i bought it. This pump has been taken apart wet sanded and then put back together.

Here is a Bennett 541 that has been sanded down and then i took some five dollar paint and a paint brush and painted it. So i guess it is considered un restored. the add glass, signs, and globe are also original. The pump decal is the only repro part on this pump.

Good looking 39!!That effect is exactly what I'm after for my shop display.Did you just sand it?Then maybe wax it?Maybe clear coat it?I like a little shine,but don't want to give up too much "as found"apperance.

I've done a few pumps now and again,but have never done one like this.Thanks for the post.

There's just something about a displayed unrestored pump that looks way cool. I have couple of pumps that I've been thinking of leaving in the "as found" condition and this thread pretty much seals the deal for me. Would love to see some more!

"As Found" original pumps, this just happens to be my favorite topic in the hobby. Here is a Wayne 80 I did. I took this one apart. Wet sanded with 220 and put a coat of wax over the original paint to give it a "sheen". I didn't clear coat this one. I always repaint the bases, frames, and computers because they are always nasty to begin with. I then wet sand the bases and burn through the new paint. This gives them an old dull original look. I have many more original paint pumps in line waiting for their "rustoration".

Thanks Coops,

I really like what you did on the 80.A little bit but not too much.Just enough to make them really displayable,IMO.Most "as founds"need a little help to fit into a display and I think you have found the balance.

By the way,I think we are going to see more and more of this in the hobby in the future.

I love original pumps also they are great that way.I use to restore all of them but now I like them left alone unless someone painted them five times.I'm not into that look.Not to offend anyone but I don't like when the cleared it just looks wrong to me,just my opinion,like I said no offense.

No problem Joe, I didn't think I would like the clear coated look either till I tried it. The reason for this on my 36B was that it had 2 different colors of paint and some surface rust. After wet sanding it, the 2 colors and surface rust were still rough to the touch. I bought clear lacquer at Home Depot and brushed on 3-4 coats, even over the decals. I then wet sanded (to get the brush marks out) and hand waxed the lacquer. It is now smooth and even and if I didn't tell you I cleared it you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. Pictures do not really do justice to the finished product.

This one I found in the woods on its side. I just removed the guts, used an SOS pad to scrub the porcelain panels and stainless with and put a new hose and repro signs on it. It even still has the state sticker on the glass.

Not sure if this will qualify...

I have a tendency not to restore any of my pumps, yet.

Just added a repro metal Gulf sign.


Foolishly sold this one about a year ago.


Still have this one.



Also two short Bennett 956(??) that are unrestored. The Chevron pump was traded for a 49 Ford Panel truck (parts).



And, finally, this Erie 70.

I was Inspired by this thread to leave my Wayne 100 unrestored. So today I went out the Garage and did a good cleaning on it and put it back together and wire up the lights. The Globe is a Original, I have a Original Pump Plate to match the Globe but I don't want to Drill any holes in it since it is hole free so DB is going to make me some Decals that look like the Pump Plate and some add glass to match.

Jason, put a large magnet on the inside of your door and stick your pump plate on. Maybe add some rolled up tape between the door and pump plate to keep it from sliding down. Or double side tape like they use on car moldings would work.

The Original Pump Plate that matches this Globe is pretty Valuable and I wouldn't want to risk it falling off. I will have DB make me some decals to play it safe.

I've never tried to make my decals look aged, might have to try.
Decals can be coated w/ satin/flat clear to take away the shine.

Here's an 'aged' decal I did for a fellow Oldgasser.

I sent him a pristine decal - but I think he was going to nibble some of the straight edges away and maybe cut a 'tear' or 2 in it.



Later . . .

Found a couple of unrestored pumps in the last couple of months. The olive green Wayne came from the Army base near Anniston, Al. The price on it is 12.9 cents per gallon. This is how we are being ripped off by the gas companies. The government was only paying this price a few years ago.

The Shell pump is a Bennett 646 that has been shortened, but it is still pretty nice....even though it is a little coated over with diesel fuel residue. Please excuse the ground clutter...Dale

These pumps look so kool in the ruff. Its like what the Rat Rod culture has done to the garage queen street rods. They have made a statement, just like these "in the raw pumps". I like to call them Rat Pumps just like the one that sits outside my shop.

Coops those scripts are awesome!!Are the tops slightly different color from the rest of the pumps,I'm curious if they painted the tops at a different plant or something?
Hotrod I would love to find a staion lighter like that tall 39 of yours that looks great all lite up.

Good eye Joe, yes the tops were repainted. Parts of the tops had primer on them so I did a quick rattle can job when I first got the pumps. When I do the clean up this summer I'm going to repaint the tops the correct color. Good looking pumps Hotrod. I saw that Phillips 66 when you first got it and what a difference a day of cleaning makes.

Frank, very nice. I love the red porcelain pumps. Have you ever seen a station-lighter on an A-62?

OK cool.I wasn't nitpicking just curious if they built them at different plants.Let me geuss the tops had yellow primer showing through.The scripts I've found had the top paint burned off with the same yellow primer they used on the inside frame and pump internals.Either way they look great.

I purchased these about 12 years ago out near Victorville, Ca. At that time I thought the price of $500 each was way over the top but my wife and I loved the patina and old look. Brought them home and built the cement base, added the station light and have loved them ever since.

Looking good Ray, unrestored pumps are looking better than ever to me. Sometimes I grab some beer and go out in the garage and look at them and wished they could talk. After enough beer I swear they do lol. ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;Ron

The Shell pump is a Bennett 646 that has been shortened, but it is still pretty nice....even though it is a little coated over with diesel fuel residue. Please excuse the ground clutter...Dale
I went through Basics and AIT at that base smile

I wasn't a member of Oldgas when this thread was started and personally think it is one of the best yet. The whole concept of displaying these pumps with minimal repair or restoration is brilliant! I liked the idea so much that I recently purchased a pump just for that purpose!
So here is my contribution to the thread, Enjoy! smile
