The Pump of the Month for May is the G&B 96. These are cool common pumps, they seem to be very plentiful around here. Ironically I do not have one yet. These pumps were made from 1938-1940. Here is the list of pumps included in this month's thread.

-G&B 96: 1938. Ad-Glass in the face.
-G&B 96: 1938. Version with sight glass in face. Has slightly different trim.
-G&B 96-HG: 1938. Short computer pump.
-G&B 96-DX: 1938. "Calco-Meter" Twin Pump
-G&B 97: 1938. Clockface version of the 96.
-G&B 297: 1938. Clockface pump with no ad glass.
-G&B 98: 1938. Computing pump with sight glass in face.
-G&B 98: 1938. Non computing pump for use in truck stops, taxi garages, etc...
-G&B 96B: 1940. Version with sight glass in the front panel above dial face.
-G&B 96B: 1938-1958. Twin pump with hoses outside. Non retractable.


Here is the list of pumps for this month. The information above comes from Jack's book. Please share what you have please. Thank you!

These are fairly common out west too! I've had about 15 or so of these pumps, and the one below is a rustoration pump in my collection that I did about 4 years ago.

Wanted anything Flying A Gas, Signal Gas, Hancock oil co, and Sunland.

Thanks Anthony

Braden,

Thanks for keeping this thread going.

I've attached photos of two pumps from my collection. Now that summer is finally here I can get some stuff out of the way so I can get photos taken

The Sunoco pump was restored about 15 years ago and is the last restoration I did. Now I leave my pumps in their as found condition.

I bought the pump and a year later I found picture of my dad as a teenager pumping gas from a Gilbarco 96
