Here I am to give this a shot. So bear with me everyone.

To resurrect this thread I thought that I would start off with a super common pump to get everyone involved. The pump of the month for March 2017 is Tokheim 39. This can be any model 39, whether it is a short or tall. So please post whatever pump you have to get this thread started off right!

Here are some photos of my Veltex branded Tokheim 39 Stationlighter pump (tall). I added photos of the top where the stationlighter attaches and a photo of the double switch assembly that is unique to the 39 stationlighter. The double switch is used to activate both the pump lighting and the stationlighter.

Yea! A POTM I can participate in....since I only have 3 pumps. Being a downtown apartment dweller limits what you can have, which is good I guess.
I found this pump 5 or 6 years ago from a walk in customer in the store I work in. I knew this elderly lady lived on a farm, so I asked her one day if there was ever a pump on the property. She said yes, and it's still in the barn, and it didn't sell at the garage sale I had last week! Needless to say I got right down there and bought myself a pump. I've done an oil base brush job on it as I always liked how Shell globes look on top of 39's. After adding a decal at some point, I'll add the "rustoration" coat and call it good. I've had it like this for over a year, as I like it like it is now too.....

Great thread !! This is one of the 4 different 39 's I have original gulf, I'm assuming this was a tall pump at one time because it's 6 inches taller than a short 39, unless gulf had them made that way? I don't know. Either I think it's cool.
thanks nick

This is the only pump I have right now. This is how I found it. Asked the guy if he knew were the doors where he said no, so I started to dig around and frowned them both laying under the guys oil burner that was mounted to the wall covered by a few flat pieces of cardboard. When I pulled them out he said what the heck did I put them there for haha.

I currently have three tall 39s. Two are four ad glass models, one with a Station Liter. The other one is a two ad glass model with aluminum side panels. The Shell 39 has the retracter hose coming out at the bottom. The Station Liter is a 1938 model with the early style cast nozzle receiver. I have only seen a few with this style. I do not know how many years they used it.
