Bought these as a package last week.

Anyone have info on the models or suggestions on what brand to restore them as ?

The green one is a Bowser 575. Because of the vertical moldings it has makes it a Tydol pump and can see a Tydol decal on it. The hard part about doing it a Tydol would be finding a shoebox globe for it. Does it have a rectangle shoebox holder on top? If you do not want to do Tydol, just remove the verticle moldings and do something else. Phillips 66 used alot of Bowsers and it would look good in it as well.

The red one is an Erie 740 or 743. I think it would look good as American (or Standard) as it is branded now. The bottom below the white (actually faded gold) stripe used to be dark blue like the logo colors. It may not have had a globe, but you could add a Standard (gold) crown figural globe to jazz it up. Love that red/white/blue color scheme.

The American and Standard (Indiana) color scheme actually called for the top half of the pump to be white. The fact that this one is red on top shows that maybe the official color scheme wasn't always enforced.

The white one is a Gilbarco 96C. Esso used only Gilbarcos so that is one brand you could do. There were three color combos for there grades of gas. Blue and white, red and white or gold and white. You could do maby other brands and still be correct.
