I got these 3 pumps from a guy who I did work for and they ask me to take them for some of the mone that was owed to me so I did. They all have the parts on the inside and 2 has the nozzles with them. 1 looks like it is all together thats the 1 with the 200x sign it has all the glass and signs on both sides. the other 2 are missing a few things. Any help would be great.

Bowser 585 or 595 and two ad glass top M&S 80's. Nice pumps. M&S 80's $500 each and hard to tell condition on the Bowser but $300.

I would say the M&S pumps with the ad glass tops would be worth $500-$600 each.The Bowser $350-$450 range.That is just an opinion considering both sides are in like condition as the sides shown.Hope this helps.Mark

They probably will not bring that on Ebay because of the cost of shipping but you never know.

Hi - I would leave the Sunoco signs on the best pump and sell it as an 'all-original' pump, just like it is...that's the kind of pump that you don't restore, you just clean it up and maybe rewire the lights...do the math and figure $500 for the two Sunoco signs and $600 for the pump...you should be able to get $1000-1100 for it on eBay...I wouldn't take less for it unless I was in a serious bind...pumps that clean and complete are pretty scarce, they all got 'parted out' or left to rust...

...the other Sunoco without the signs is at least $600...and the Bowser maybe $300-350...

...these are nice pumps, I'd run the best one on eBay for sure...good luck!

Thanks, Matt, for helping with the auction numbers.

Thanks also to those who bid by putting one auction number at a time in the eBay search box at the bottom of this page to reach the auction and bid. Keeps this site afloat!

Apparently no $oul...

To my surprise,I see my ebay bid has been cancelled,along with others.
kcroucher..aka luke19560 out of Flat Rock Indiana,I will never buy/bid on anything you have to offer or answer any questions on here for you again.
You told me repeatedly to "just bid" when I asked you how much for the pumps and said you'd let the auction determine their true value.Apparently you are not a man of your word either & like to take advantage of many on this great website.

Those were some high-dollar Sunoco signs on that pump - very rare to see them in that condition in the thin parts of the arrow.

You know we help these newbies here with all their questions. What's if worth ? That's all they care about. And then you try to tell em. And you pm the guy and make a fair offer on the pump plates and he tell me he will sell them to me and send some close up pictures so I can decide what condition they are after gets back from church never heard any thing else from him and then he puts them on ebay. We should at least get a shot at some of this stuff with these guys. Just got stabbed in the back not even a thank you.

Let's keep this in mind... you also have guys on this site that i would guessed offered $250 for the pump with the signs so he goes to ebay to sell and get what market is doing.
Now why he would end it? Maybe someone offered him $1000 for it?

The thing is he had peoples interest from oldgas where he came for info. and then never cared about any of us after that.
What a guy does with his stuff is his to do with... but how he treats people in the process is what's not right!

On the flip side if you start shunning people when they look here first it seems like your shooting your self in the foot. Ya win some ya loose some. It's nice this site is here to attract people that have found things, and want values on. You certanly wouldnt want to post a warning on the home page telling people not to ask questions if your going to be gready about it.

Well it's nice to see what these guys are out there finding. And then come here for advice and tell them what to do with it and how they can get more money for it. I did not low ball him on those pump plates. He told me he did not want to deal with ebay. He could have at least told me he changed his mind or come back with a counter offer or something. Money changes every thing in people minds.

It's obvious he's not a collector and that he had no interest in becoming one.

It was strictly business for him. He got a good offer and took it.

And...in regard to ending ebay auctions early we've argued that one for years, we have members on both sides of that argument.

I say the site worked quite well, someone that didn't know anything about gas pumps got some good intel and they made their own decision about their items. Usually the complainers are the ones that couldn't/didn't strike a deal.

Interesting discussion.Many valid points have been brought up.I think the most valid points for self evaluation are JJ's first sentence and Ohio Oil's last sentence.

I think those thoughts speak volumes about the current status of many in the hobby."I'm in it for a buck".You know,I actually told another collector,"if all it is is about money,then I'm in the wrong hobby".Just something to think about.

We (the members of Oldgas) have been through this many times before. Thankfully it doesn't seem to happen as often as it did a few years ago. A couple of years ago after getting burned a few times, a lot of the more knowledgeable members wouldn't answer questions. Hopefully it won't be that way again, but if it does, I for one will understand completely.

I'm not sure how many are in this hobby, but each collector is an individual and as such has their own reasons for being in the hobby. None of these reasons are "right or wrong". For a reason to be considered right or wrong, someone would have to have the power over all collectors to decide what the acceptable reasons,are.

Some people have been collecting for decades, others will start collections right now, some are in the middle and some will end their collecting. None of these people have to defend their reasons for collecting to anyone. I for one like it that way.

Sometimes that works out well for me, other times I get frustrated and angry.

I remember that many times I irritate some in the hobby while hopefully most of the time I am a credit to myself and to the hobby.
