Phillips 66 had a grade of fuel called Flite Fuel like a premium gas. A dedicated pump would have had black sides with white front and back and a black base. Not aviation fuel all though the name can be misleading. That’s a good looking pump nice find.

That’s awesome. I should put a globe on it and stickers and call it good.

That’s what I’d do. And distress the stickers a little, or put a diluted white was over them.

Here’s a pic of my ALL original Neptune w/ original globe. It was from a Michigan gas station, branded in Leonard (a Michigan gas company)....

Looks good. Is there a globe ring on top or does it just mount to the top?

The globe ring is built / stamped into the top. So no globe ring was used. The Capco sits in the recessed top and is held in with screws.
