Can anyone tell me about these "little fella" pumps.
Year, where they were commonly used, rarity and value in restored condition.
This one has a small globe for it.

thanks,

Commonly used in commercial situations like farms and business's where they might want to keep track of gallons used but didn't need a sophisticated metering system that would list a charge for the gallons used. Never used in retail situations.

That makes sense.
Fairly common?
Value?
Thanks,

As Kevin stated above, these were used on farms, taxi garages, truck garages or any commercial business where they needed to pump gasoline but they didn't need to compute the prices of what was being pumped. They were rarely painted anything but red, but Tokheim would paint the in any color desired, at no added cost. They were not sold with a globe attachment, and in very rare occasions did they have decals and "Contains Lead" signs on them. They pumped 10 gallons per minute and as far as I can determine they were available from 1950-1954 when they were replaced with the Model 48 that had a V/R meter. Your pump appears to be missing the nozzle holder.

Could be considered common, and sorry I cannot give you a value. My policy is to never value a restored item that I cannot touch.

Tokheim referred to it as a "Power Pump." http://petrolianacollectibles.com/tokheim%2040.htm

Thanks for that info Jack.
It is not my pump but was offered to me.
I had not seen one before and was curious about it.
Good to know about the globe, decals and contains lead omitted on these.The owner did mention that he had ordered the proper "small globe" for it though.
Probably a good little pump for someone with limited space.
Not sure if he knows the history, I will pass this on to him.

Thanks again!

I just sold an unrestored version of that pump for $100 plus trade of a small coke button that had been touched up and a roached clean restroom sign.

Restored figure $450-600 average. Best prices I've seen are for custom pumps for Harley or Indian paint schemes.

Thanks for that info, the current owner is looking for about $900.00. and an extra $100.0 for the globe. So probably priced out of market for people in the know. Not for me but hope he gets near his price as he is a straight up guy.
Would make a good decoration for an apartment or office I suppose.

The size makes it appealing for smaller displays for sure.
