Here is my SSE 76, that is Service Station Equipment. It still needs a few parts and some body panels straightened out. Hopefully one day I will get to it.

I am sorry this picture is not all that great. It was very hot out yesterday and my pump was buried. I have two more but they are in need of repairs with broken tops etc. I have a four ad glass one and had top pieces recast but it is a pile of Parts as well ! Great thread!!!!

Yeah, the face plate is crooked, but it is magnetic, so that is fixable. Nope the visi gauge is in original spot. LOL. See message above.

Here are my two.

The Richfield pump was found in a wall in an old station in Truckee, CA. The owner of the station was trying to enlarge his office space, so he figured he would open up a wall that had a large void in it. At this point he had owned the station for several years and it had always bothered him that his office had this sheet rock pop out that sounded hollow when he would knock on it.

One day wheeling a hammer, he took to the sheet rock and punched a large hole in the wall only to see his reflection in a piece of glass as he looked into the hole. It took him a minute before he figured out that he was looking at an old pump face. At this point he started opening up the sheet rock a little more carefully to find this old Bennett 76 gas pump with original paint. He never did find out why someone would seal this old pump in the wall, but he did say he thought this is what sparked his passion for collecting.

Back in those days, the trend was to restore them all, and I was only able to purchase the pump from him after he had primed it to protect it from the elements until it could be restored. He didn't bother sanding it before he primed it and it had all of those old layers of paint. So, I decided to do a rustoration on it and I really liked the way it turned out. I've always enjoyed thinking of him and the story of how found it. I've owned over a hundred pumps over the years and this one with it's great story is one of my keepers.

The Canadian version is an SSE. Basically the same pump but with a lot more chrome and a good look.

I like that Canadian version!
