Just came across this forum last week and decided it looks like a valuable resource. Primarily interested in collecting a few items to decorate my newly planned garage for my recently purchased 72' Corvette. Putting together a few items and I don't want to make overtly unwise purchases. I hope to learn a lot and perhaps pick up a few nice items from other forum members.
I seem to have both in my parts bin. The aluminum one on the left fits into a 7 inch globe ring on the pump and allows you to put a 6 inch base globe onto that pump. The red cast iron one, goes the opposite way. allows a globe with a 7 inch base to be installed on a pump with a 6 inch globe holder. You can have either for $100 and the shipping.
This is a quote from Jack Sims website---Identifying the nozzles used by M&S is difficult. Their literature doesn't mention the company they purchased the nozzles from, and their pictures are so that it is difficult to identify the nozzle shown.-----
Looks like they were probably Buckeye 800's. Give me a shout when you are ready for a nozzle, as I have a pretty good stash of them.
Original Shell Oil Bottle Rack. Very rare and not too many have survived. Complete with 12 Shell Oil Bottles of various types just like the service station would of displayed. A few of the labels have worn off but most are intact. Working to clear out some of my collection for other items. This is the real deal and you don't find too much Shell Oil original items.
Great Polly Tokheim Original Visible with Blue Tinted glass with patent date of 1918. Rare side service station lights to light up the cylinder. Globe is a repro but al the original parts are inside. New Hose with Brass Nozzle fitted. Restoration about 5 yrs ago. Need to make room in my collection. VERY Heavy (about 300-350 pounds) so shipping will be expensive. I live in Phoenix area. I have only had it apart once when I bought it. Chips in the glass cylinder but very rare to find a true original piece.
Great Polly Lubester in good condition. one small chip on the top of about 1/8" but otherwise great color and gloss, restored about 5 years ago. $650. Dimensions 53 H x 23 W x 10 deep.
