You received the best advice above. Clean what you can, polish it and stand back and decide if you like the way it looks. If not, start the restoration process.

My fear of not restoring it is that some areas will continue to rot(rust) away, eventually maybe even collapsing years down the road. We all know what happens to a car once it starts rusting. Wisconsin is not kind to any metal kept outside. Because I was originally looking for a 1950's style pump with a globe, I think I'll keep looking for one. I can always unload this one.

thanks for all the ideas
