Finally got my Iowa Gas Buy home. I didn't take my truck to Iowa gas because I wasn't planning on buying a pump but when I found this one for sale I couldn't pass on it.


Disclaimer:This is a picture of my gas pump, I took it,and I approve this post.

Nice pump there John! Looks better than it did at Iowa! Now that you've disclaimered the pic does that mean I can't repost it at a later date without getting in trouble? Or receive a "that's been posted before on here" reply?

Some things are just too hard to find without the help of others!
Mark Smith had called me last winter about a few Cities Service items that he had just come across and he was wondering if I was interested in any of them? When part of the find was a case of NOS Cities Service Trojan oil cans---well, I jumped with both feet! I had sort of given up on finding the right number of cans to fill my old oil rack---much less NOS cans! I paid Mark for the cans and picked them up at Iowa Gas, and they were patiently waiting in a plastic tub until I got around to cleaning and stacking them on the rack for display!
Thats one of the great things about this hobby-- the help you get from other collectors, whether it be help with finding an item, or transporting an item across the USA! It sure makeas it fun to know those kind of people and I can greatfully say that I have met a lot of them in the past few years! Mark is a great guy and if you've ever done business with him, you already know that! Thank you Mark for contributing to my Cities Service display!

Our museum picked up this Wayne 615 within the last two weeks. All that is missing is the hose. Not bad for a first time pick. We were very lucky.

Picked these up last weekend and just got around to getting them out of the trailer today. An unrestored pair of Bennett's in B/A 88 & 98, and an unrestored Wayne 70 in Sky Chief. Also picked up these 5 gallon cans and a few smaller Red Indian cans. Time to slow it down for a bit as the shops filling up too fast. lol

Yeah...I'm thinking hard on whether they should be left alone...but I really dislike the color green unless it $$$. Was going to restore the BA pumps in Gilmore and the Wayne in the same finish as everything around them in my home shop will be completely restored. Plates are matching 1947 dates on the Wayne, and it came with this original wide body globe as well.



I'm on the fence about restoring them but trying real hard to sway towards leaving them alone.

...those pumps aren't that rare - but all original ones ARE...I'd leave 'em as is...

...you've been collecting for 6 months, right? give it time...you can always restore them down the road...5 years from now, you might regret repainting them into just another Gilmore pump...

Good advice there Graeme--leave them as is. Start a section that is unrestored pumps. Down the road, they will be more valuable than if you restored them!

It would be a sin to restore them. Sell them or trade them off if you really want a restoration project!

Agreed. Those pumps are a dime a dozen in restorable condition. In that condition they are actually of value. Someone please take those away from him before he ruins em! Build another building to hide all these nice pumps in if you're embarrassed to show your friends and only show them the shiny pumps. Fill the back shop up with these and you'll realize in a while that you did the right thing! Nice finds!

yep, anybody & everybody can have shiny restored pumps,... but the unrestored pumps like you have pictured are few and far between. a few yrs from now you will regret restoring those 3 pumps. chris

Being a B/A collector, those two Bennetts are just awesome. I had a Bennett like those, that was missing one door and had a Gulf decal on the existing door, when I pulled the Gulf decal off, there was an original B/A 88 decal underneath. I just cleaned it up and left it as is. Unfortunately I ended up having to sell it and my other unrestored pumps before I got a door for it. Anyway, it wouldn't hurt my feelings if you kept the matching B/A's intact. Oh yeah, another great haul there Graeme.

Good advice which is always appreciated. They will be left as survivors. Now the question is, remove the pumps or leave them intact?

Also not embarrassed to show these at all Clint. smile

OK enough pump talk in BOTW. Back to show and tell lol. Here is an NOS 3'x5' Marfak sign dated 47. Came today. Thanks to several olgassers suggestions I was able to clean the bubble wrap circles off the painted finish and got it looking pretty good in the process.

Graeme, you have it bad....pump addiction. You are still thinking (day dreaming) about your gas pumps. That is a Marfax SIGN.

Worst case of case of pumpitis I've seen in a long time, very contagious!

Yeah, he has it bad. I wonder how long before he sell the 55 Chevy to make room for pumps.


I like shoebox pumps [Linked Image]
