Pretty close, but I don’t think it’s the same pump. Could be wrong but loks like it has a tapered casting on the pump in the 2nd pic....& the one in the 3rd pic doesn’t....& all of the opening doors don’t lok to be on the pump in pic 3?? Chris
March 17 and 18 is the Dave Wahl estate auction in Bismarck, North Dakota. Dave was a well known collector that recently passed, and his collection will be sold on these days. The link I have attached is only 160 pictures of an 800 lot sale! Contact the auction company for any additional information!
Hey, North Carolina.... I’d recommend taking out 2 magazine subscriptions. One for “Check the Oil” and the other to “Petroleum Collectibles”. You can’t beat the info in the articles, dates for gas & oil shows and auctions and classifieds. Of course, Oldgas classifieds & EBay are probably the best source for items for sale. Enjoy the ride & hobby! Roger
I agree, however if you are new to the hobby, you must know that the majority of signs (especially pump plates) are fake on eBay. So be very careful when purchasing on ebay. You can find a list of some fake sign sellers here:
Hi all - My Dad is finally retiring from his automotive business of 50 years, at the age of 82. He's a got a LOT of auto parts cabinets, many of which have been around as long as I can recall (I'm 50). I've found most of the others he has online here and there, but these, I can find nowhere.
Does anyone know how old, and what the value might be? They are dirty, but could clean up very well - it's a lot of soot. Some small surface rust but nothing terrible.
