Edit to make image appear
This is a 39 I did years ago with a silver skychief to match. Back when jobbers still had rows of short 39's sitting out back with the pump plates still on them. Those were the good old days.

Heres my tohkiem 39 short, made from three different pumps that was given to me , it didn't have the computer so i made it into my mail box, the color scheme is of course in Seaside , with the decals being of the 1960ties.
The Tall -39 is my next and last one , i will do it in H.earl Clack or Golden Eagle from Sunset ,

Well I hope these pictures work!!!

The short Tokheim is the first pump I restored in 1989, the second tall in
1992.

Dwaine,

thats a pretty honkin big mail box ! Do you really need one that big for penthouse, playboy, and Check the Oil ?

The short pump came from Globe AZ. A friend and I went to an old station converted to a garage where we knew some pumps used to sit. The owner said oh I hauled those to the scrap yard a while back.
Went to the salvage yard and there they were, just where he had kicked them off the back of the truck. Bought them for what the scrap price was and brought them home. He did one and I did one. I never stopped, he did. The tall pump came from Bozeman, MT. from a bulk plant yard. No dents and had no sign holes, brush paint, etc. Probably privately owned.

Very nice pumps so far guys. And this is only the first day. I can't wait to see more. I think the Tokheim 39 is THE classic gas pump! Wayne 800's, Tokheim 850's, and the others are extradinary pumps to own, but when you are talking to someone about a "gas pump" the 39 is the one in their head. Still one of my top favorite pumps.

Here's a Tokheim Mod#39 that I bought off of a farm in Idaho. It had been snowing, and the farmer used his tractor/loader to bring it out of the mud for me. I really liked the way it looked with the signs and add glass, so I've never touched it, just left it unrestored. Note the Sieberling tire sign next to it? Ever seen an advertisment for "AIR COOLED" TIRES? Aren't they all air cooled? ha ha...

Gaspower,
Your tall 39 looks great! I want to know what color you used on the body? The first pump I reastored is a tall 39 also, but I have not posted it yet.

Nice color on that Chevron, very clean pump inside and out.

Sometimes there's just too much heritage in the pumps like dons and it is neat just left like it is. I call those patio pumps, little rust, a few nicks, but lots of character.

If dwaine didnt have so much nice seaside stuff, I might feel sorry for him and send him a top for his tall pump. Not.

Come on guys, I know you have some photos of these pumps.
