While a Tokheim 300 isn't an exciting pump and Texaco Sky Chief gray is not exciting either...but, I have accumulated a couple of different cardboard Texaco pump toppers from when they started to market their "Petrox" additive in the mid 50s. Always wanted to do a pump around that theme and finally got it done. the two pics are a before and after. Someday I may do a Tokheim 39 with the other topper. The ads I have found are around the 39 and 300. There is still one topper I am missing...oh well, that's what makes collecting fun.

...I like it - accurate restorations are never boring...but, 'Sky Chief gray'? Thought they were silver...
