Does anyone remember the round Mobil pumps from the 70's. It had stainless steel skirts and had a plastic top that would lite up. Anyone know where I could find the plastic top?

Not the 70s, 1965. Most will remember them as being built by Wayne, but the identical pump was also made by Gilbarco. There was a single hose pump, a twin and a matching oil can cabinet. Mobil also built stations with a large white canopy covering the islands.

I happen to be working on one that I have had for about fifteen years. Just dragged it out and blew the dust off. At one time I had I think twelve. Cleaned out a bulk warehouse and I didn't even want them. But the seller said I had to take ALL of the pumps AND all of the over 40 lubesters that were there. Nobody wanted the pumps and sold most for scrap. I sold most of the lubesters to Jim and Rory Brinkman.
Good luck finding a top. They are very brittle and cracked easily.
I kept one pump with good stainless and that was it. Not cheap to restore the stainless either. We are going to do a 100% restoration on this one.
Good luck on yours.

Cold Pizza,

Your picture above is much better than the pic I have for the next book, can I use your picture?

Also, is your pump a Wayne or a G&B?

One more thing, the pictures I have show a three wheel V/R, I would say your pump is probably from the 70s, am I correct?

Forgot to mention that Elliot Noyes was the designer of the stations and the pumps.

Here is another site where you can look at some strange service stations:

Man, those are some UGLY gas stations! It's hard to argue that we've progressed as a species when you compare those disasters to the old service stations of the 30's, 40's and 50's. Mankind is clearly in decline...

I have three doubles of those in the process and am looking for stainless bottoms or skins also. I think they are a great pump and one for the future. Came out with the 64 or 65 mustang.

I've turned down several of those pumps the last few years because the tops are always cracked or broken. The tops are very hard to find...
