Has anyone seen this hole on the right side (nozzle side) panel up near the top where the metal bends? We’re in the middle of restoring this pump and came across this and were trying to figure out what goes there or if someone else prior put it there. Anyone have any ideas?

Yes, like Dave said, it’s for a pricer box or an ad. If you look down into the hole where the manifold would sit, there’s a threaded socket for the pricer box ‘pole’ to thread into.

This thread may help a little:

The pumps with the hole in the top of the door came with a bolt like rod but no head on it. Items like are shown in Matt's picture slide on this rod. Many cities or states required the price of the gasoline be shown on the pump, this is why this was provided.
