I about fell over when I discovered this piece recently in a southwestern Mi. barn. This is a Model A, Ford Tire and rim, sitting on top of a vintage Firestone display rack. I believe the rim itself dates to the 1930's. Rack has signage on front and back. The tire itself is a Firestone 4.74/5.00-19, not particularly old but the rim definitely is. I think the rack will clean up nicely with a little elbow grease. The farmer I bought this from told me that his father owned a firestone tire outlet and he used this display in his store. Interesting piece of Firestone advertising.

The image shows the attachment of the gasoline supply pipe to the top of the swing are spigot "T". My cast iron Red Sentry no longer has the connection outlined in red. My supply pipe screws directly into the spigot swing arm "T". I would like to replace the connection above the "T". I don't know if it is 2 pieces or 1 and what the connection part or parts are called. Can I purchase modern parts that are the same as the original connection parts? Joe

I picked this up a few weeks ago and haven’t really been able to gather much information regarding it. Seems as though there were quite a few different styles of of these testers but this particular style seems less common. Quite neat and fully functional with the light and working tester ball. Anybody have input into whether these were an effective tool or more of a gimmick and thus less common?
Hi All, I picked up this Progress Manufacturing Co. 6 sided visible at an auction a couple weeks ago. I was wondering if anyone had any info about it or any other pictures of one? I was mainly wondering if anyone knew if this dome was correct? The one that's on it, looks like it's from a Wayne. There's a picture of one in Jack's pump id book vol 2 and it also looks like a Wayne top. I'm also wondering if the pump handle it correct. Looks like this was a former Cities Service Oil Co. pump

I've had this 36 for over a decade and it's been sitting in a corner. I've never really studied it until recently. A good friend and fellow oldgas member verified for me today that it's got the wrong computer.
As you can see in the picture, it has a later front Totalizer, embossed black wheels, and a hacked out face. The pump is crusty and original. This appears to have been done a long time ago.
I really want to make it right. I am looking for one decent face and the correct computer. I've included a pic. of the correct computer that was posted by a fellow member earlier. I think it's a 10-3/4" VR but correct me if I'm wrong on that.
Can pick up at CTO if anyone has one they can bring or send?
Thanks in advance! Call, Text, or PM 7zero4-two45-5one70
Hoping someone out there has the corner stainless pieces for a Tokheim 876 Gulf pump. I could also use one cast face bezel . These corner pieces are about 57 1/2 " long. Thanks old gas for this service.
Have a friend who is wanting to sell a large Philips 66 sign in the frame, 6ft and the pole. The pole is cut nicely in the center for ease of shipping. I told him I could help him crate and prepare for shipping, but was wondering if the size was going to be a big problem. Sign easily weighs 300lbs with the frame and the two pole pieces another couple hundred pounds. Anybody have thoughts if Ebay with their new method of auctions or lack of info on them would be best or another venue. Picture means everything and this is a 8 out of 10 possibly sign. Thoughts??

I have decided to use a stencil to outline the RED SENTRY and FILTERED GASOLINE and then use gold paint. I don't think Bowser would have lettered the sides of 1,000s of pumps with gold leaf. Could have been water transfer decal or painted.
I need to know the width of the letters and the heighth of each line of text. Can someone provide? Joe
