Its been a few weeks, so I thought I'd try this one again. I am searching for a larger showcase type pump, such as a Wayne 50 or Tokheim ADC or something of that nature! I'm not in a big hurry as I have pump projects stacked all over my shop but I better get started because this may take some time!
I'm sure willing to pay a finders fee or give a profit to someone that can negotiate a deal for me! I'd just like to have one before I get too old to enjoy it! LOL
SO GET BUSY AND FIND ME A PUMP! cool

Several members have contacted me with bits of information and are still looking for a pump for me and I appreciate it!
What started all this was my knee surgery and the realization that I'm not getting any younger---soooooo if I want to be able to enjoy one in my lifetime, I'd better start looking as it may take a while!
I have a high school buddy that has one in original condition and he had informed me just before surgery, that he was planning on putting it on ebay! Well, I hurried over and after some long negotiations, found out that his expectations weren't very realistic and that I could probably give up on that pump. I had always hoped he would tire of it and maybe need the cash one day, but it has never happened and I don't see it happening soon. I called him the other day and asked what happened to his ebay plans, and he said that the east coast hurricane had shut down that idea for now. If he ever does list it, I'll post the sale number on here for the membership.
I keep hoping that the next time I walk into someones barn to look at an old pump, that one will be staring me in the face!! LOL Keep dreaming for now, I guess!

So what should a pump like this realistically be priced at?

Yes, thats the one. I thought he was going to call when he finally listed it, but I'm glad you guys brought it to my attention. I had always thought I'd be able to buy it from him but he wants to try this avenue, and who knows, he might get it sold?
He found it in a junkyard many years back and wasn't even sure what it was when he bought it. LOL He thought it might even be a candy machine or something for sales items anyway! He brought it home and its been in his garage ever since.
His biggest problem is that he saw one sell at Barrett-Jackson for $18,500 several years ago and when he started exploring values, he found one online for $28,000. This kind of set the bar for him.
I'm going to bid on it but I'm sure I won't be winning this one! LOL It'll be interesting to see what happens.

Kevin knows how good it is but as mentioned above, the pictures are not good. I would say it is a 10-12K pump. The last one I seen for sale had a 15K ashing price and I think it sold for less. It will be fun to see how high it goes. Hope you end up with it Kevin.
