I was going to wait until this was done before sharing it but it is going to be some time before it gets finished and it will be a good addition to this POTM. An oldgas member found it in a scrap yard on his way to my friend Don Sherwoods house. Before he left with the pumps that were sold to him Don asked if he wanted to sell it. A deal was made and it was unloaded. Don decided it was too big of a project and knew I would put it back together so it was offered to me. There are parts missing, broken castings and lots of bad rust. The first picture is how it looked when I purchased it. The second is staged the best I could get it for a BOTW picture. The last is after casting repairs and main display case work done. It is getting a rustoration.

I can not believe the pumps still have globes and glass at this abandoned station.

This is the only photo in my saved archives showing a couple showcase pumps......they appear to be originally Firestone pumps that were painted white and switched over to Union 76 as you can still see Firestone on the faceplates of the Wayne 40's. (At least I think they are, I'm not super pump knowledgeable!) The station owner must have liked everything in pairs!!

That’s not two pumps...it’s a Wayne 56...twin jumbo showcase. Here’s 1/2 of one I brought home a few years back:
