Looking to buy a unrestored original UNION 76 gas pump. Would prefer a WAYNE 70 or a TOKHEIM 39 pump. May entertain others. Here is my story. I was able to purchase a nice TOKHEIM 39 off of CL a while back. The lady was very difficult to deal with and I was not actually sure if she was going to sell me the pump even when I showed up. I had to pay more than her asking price just to get her to make the deal. Today I get a call from a guy that has been tracking that pump for years and trying to buy it as it was his Grandfathers original pump. He has stopped by, sent nice letters, made phone calls and they would not deal. He drives by a while back and the pump is GONE!! He hits the local antique stores, asks around town and nothing. He googles and finds the OLD GAS FORUM and finds the picture of his Grandpa's pump that I posted. He joins OLDGAS just so that he has a way to contact me. Would I sell it NO, but told him I would trade if we can find a similar UNION unrestored pump. It really needs to be in his family.
ALWAYS LOOKING FOR ANYTHING UNION 76 WOULD LIKE TO FIND A UNION 76 BALL TO DISPLAY NEXT TO MY SHOP.
