Brought this home. Older resto, so more of a revitalization than a resto. Just needs some dressing up. The globe body is a old one. Had repop Texaco Ethyl in them dated 2003. Doing it up as a SOCONY. Needed a good cleaning, buff, and polish. Needs wiring redone. Still had original electric wire and fixtures. Have to fabricate a piece for the side light so I can get a socket in it. Pump mechanism still functions as it should. Metal is heavy on these!!!

SOCONY used a lot of these pumps. Thanks nochevys for the advice on putting it back SOCONY.

Quick update. Some parts arrived this afternoon. When I was removing panels initially i was puzzled by the holes in the upper panel. Hole pics from backside of panel. When looking around at parts I came across the brass GB logo. It was under visible pump parts and when I got to looking at it I noticed the hole pattern. Matched up well. I believe the holes to be original. Dressed it up well.

Now to find a decent upper pump plate.....
