A friend of mine has one in pretty good shape for $900 just south of Richmond. I thought that was a fair price for what I have seen in my neck of the woods. Brady

You never know on price...I was at a farm sale near Peoria, Illinois last month and watched a really pretty nice Tok 36B, VERY minimal rust, all there, good to restore sell at auction for 700 bucks and the auctioneer had to really pump the crowd to get THAT. It had stalled at 625 and was about done. I didn't bid because it wasn't a pump that I really wanted to buy. I am not a dealer, just a collector-admirer...a 'keeper' kind of person.

Hang in there. Be patient. A good pump will come around in a price range you are happy with....

Hey, been up here at my parents helping tend the farm, Hertford NC, my mother broke her neck falling off of a horse about three weeks ago....... she's ok, but in a full upper body brace. Diddy's had his hands full. Dodogas and Mr. DC Pate, yes, I love collecting and my views are not skewed, they are realistic. The guy asking the value is in question about the "true" value of an item. And I gave him a real, honest answer. Not a "hopeful" or "let's take the guy" answer. And, as far as my pump on eBay, that is an interesting pump, much older, Visible Measure, cast, original parts and panels, no filler, no new doors, no new top, all old and original, all there, and what little that has been done to that pump, can be very easily undone. It's a much better pump. Period. And the "buy it now" price is a little(a little tiny bit) high. BUT, here again, it is all there and it is a much more significant pump than a Tok 36b. Am I wrong about that too? I shouldn't have compared it to a Tok 36b, because there is no comparison...... I guess all the "BIG BOYS" that go to ALL the BIG shows, and have ALL the money, and are "HIGH PROFILE MONEY SLINGERS" and put ALL the books out, they are the only ones that have any say or opinion (or knowledge for that matter) that is correct in this great, fun, friendly, so called "hobby". Hollywood, dreams and movies, fantasy frolic in the neighbors back yard; all the things that are fun, if your on the "inside"....... the "inside" is fantasy. This stuff is supposed to be fun. Step back and look at reality. Not just about gas pumps but about everything, and maybe things will make a little better sense. OK, speedway, just go ahead and prepair yourself to spend $1200 or $1500 on a half-*** 36b , I'm sorry, I was wrong. And then buy the parts you need to finish it, and then restore it or have it restored. And I'll guess you'll have about $3300 in the pump all said and done. Then you can go make yourself boubon and Coke and sit down and look at the pump and say, "Wow, cool, I'm a member of the Dumbasses Collectors Club" !!! Take it for what it's worth. Speaking of boubon and Coke.........

There are many ways to look at it.

From a dealers point of view it is worth about 20.00...scrap dealer that is..

For someone that uses it on a farm it is woth more if it works, to me I could care less if it works.

If they are out there where you live prices should be better, out here they are all imported from down south and hard to find.

If a farmer bought one 20 years back for 150.00 used it and now gets 400..everyone is happy.

In general though there is found price and going rate and I believe the op asked what range they go for..

Also if you are selling one, ask yourself..can I replace it??

I really don't know what to think of this guy. I don't think you could ever please a person like this. All opinion and all attitude.My 36b was $800 my wayne 60 was $800 and both my visibles were $600. Im not rich but i save for what i want. No piont in blaming rich people, They had to work for thier money too.Time has made things expensive, Live with it, whining doesn't change a thing Mike

People that write books DON'T make enough to pay for their time. They would make more money working for McD's or WALMART @ minimum wages.

I'm GLAD that THEY could afford to take the time it requires to get it in PRINT, FOR ALL TO ENJOY !!

THERE WILL ALWAYS BE ROOM IN THIS OBSESSION FOR THE GUY WORKING FOR MIN.WAGES ON UP TO BILL GATES !

Buy what you like & can afford.
Buy the books & DREAM of finding the highest priced ITEMS.

Since I do pumps & parts for a living everyday....I feel like I have a darn good feel for the real prices on pumps both restored & unrestored. I buy any complete (by that I mean all sheetmetal & castings, not trim/faces/glass) 36B that comes my way for anything under $1000. My bottom dollar on an unrestored one in like condition is $1500. That last restored one I sold in Pollygas was $4500. These aren't just mythical auction prices or pie-in-the-sky BS, I sell several of these annually. REMEMBER, there is plenty of room for the hobbyist, purist, collector, collector/dealer, historians, & the business people. It takes ALL kinds.....

I have never seen a fry worth that much,must be real nice or you just think so?I have sold 2 complete ones in the last year for 1500 each.I have 2 tokheim 36 for sale also,one for 800 decent with top and one for 1500 that is very nice and original.Welcome to the world NC,no one likes the gas prices the way they are but it looks like to me I still see cars on the road!If you cant afford one then dont buy one,or even try to say you dont want one!They are beautifil pumps and are harder to find.I seen one sell on ebay a year ago for around 3500 in gulf theme so are they worth it???If you want one!Get in or get out of the game,dont try to make it look bad for the crew here.As I said here before,we are all dealers in one way or another and we all like top dollar out of all our stuff,the question is how long will it last,hopefully a long time.Steve

If any of you guys on the PACNW are tired of looking at your ugly old National A-1 I will take it off your hands for $$$ or trade you a 36B with a top and original sheetmetal. Rusty, battered, and incomplete orphans cheerfully adopted into a kind and caring home with others equally repulsive, Mine !
