Missing a door and the base is busted but this may be, in my opinion, the coolest pump I've had. I love the art deco cast iron top on this. $1,300. Local pick up in San Bernardino, Ca. only. Thanks, Tom

This is the very first pump i ever bought and restored. I paid $40 for it. This is one of the best looking art deco pumps ever made IMHO.

My excitement comes from the thrill of the find.... but this may end up being the first one I keep. Do you know what year it might be?

These are great looking pumps with the ad glass top, they came out in 1937.

Most people wouldn't guess it but they made a Mobilgas script top for this pump.

Whoever buys it, I'll have a base and door.

Way to go a Dave! I have one of these in my collection and have to agree the top is awesome! I also have owned one with the script top, but a few guys did not believe me that it was original! Dick Bennett knew it was original. Sold it to a friend who appreciated it!

The hard part is the stainless trim on the door around the windows . Hopefully Tom has that for you as well otherwise you may have to wait a long while for good used trim.

I saw that piece online earlier today. I think it was 60 bucks. I'll have to see if I can find it again

The coolest pump of mine is always the latest one!
Thanks for the good words Rob!
Thanks to Tom Buckles for always helping out.
It would be nice if Tom has the trim on his door or if Tom Feher can locate the one online.

I found the one I was referring to. Vic's 66 has it. But now that I look at it again, it's not the correct one for this.
