Here are some photos of my Veltex branded Tokheim 39 Stationlighter pump (tall). I added photos of the top where the stationlighter attaches and a photo of the double switch assembly that is unique to the 39 stationlighter. The double switch is used to activate both the pump lighting and the stationlighter.

Yea! A POTM I can participate in....since I only have 3 pumps. Being a downtown apartment dweller limits what you can have, which is good I guess.
I found this pump 5 or 6 years ago from a walk in customer in the store I work in. I knew this elderly lady lived on a farm, so I asked her one day if there was ever a pump on the property. She said yes, and it's still in the barn, and it didn't sell at the garage sale I had last week! Needless to say I got right down there and bought myself a pump. I've done an oil base brush job on it as I always liked how Shell globes look on top of 39's. After adding a decal at some point, I'll add the "rustoration" coat and call it good. I've had it like this for over a year, as I like it like it is now too.....

Great thread !! This is one of the 4 different 39 's I have original gulf, I'm assuming this was a tall pump at one time because it's 6 inches taller than a short 39, unless gulf had them made that way? I don't know. Either I think it's cool.

This is the only pump I have right now. This is how I found it. Asked the guy if he knew were the doors where he said no, so I started to dig around and frowned them both laying under the guys oil burner that was mounted to the wall covered by a few flat pieces of cardboard. When I pulled them out he said what the heck did I put them there for haha.

I currently have three tall 39s. Two are four ad glass models, one with a Station Liter. The other one is a two ad glass model with aluminum side panels. The Shell 39 has the retracter hose coming out at the bottom. The Station Liter is a 1938 model with the early style cast nozzle receiver. I have only seen a few with this style. I do not know how many years they used it.

Here are a couple I used to own. I thought I would post them because they do not show up as often as other 39s. When the short 39 first came they had large widows and a tall 39 with out ad glass is unusual. Also this one pictured is a harder one to come by because it is a high volume model with an early four digit Veeter-Root computer.

This is my only 39. I bought it in pieces with a basket of parts so no before pics. I'm not in the shop right now so not sure of the exact model number but I'll try to look and add it tomorrow. I never knew there were so many different variations of this pump until I started to restore this one. They are great pumps, everybody should have at least one!....GB

Braden great job on resurrecting POTM form. You chose the only pump that I have two to contribute. First is an original 39 short Derby pump and the other is a 39 tall with an older restoration done in Standard. Ill have to get the model numbers added later when at the house. See you in a couple of weeks when in Hays.

Hello from Gas Pump Rob,

This is a picture of a factory shortened Tokheim 39 HR (height reduction ) pump. After WW2 the Tokheim pump and tank company decided to shorten some of their existing pump panels in inventory and assemble a more modern looking pump. This is a shortened early version with the cast base, four window advertising glass , and aluminum faces.

Happy pump hunting,
Rob

That is interesting. I thought a 39 HR pump was a "hose reel" pump. My Shell 39 I posted is a 1941 39 HR VP. I do not know what the VP stands for but it dose have a hose reel.

I was looking at a Tokheim manual yesterday trying to find model info. I did not but found this info. Here is the nozzle used and here is a schematic on the hose safety shut off. These were required in some states. Also here are some lighting schematics. The lighting on the right is the vapor proof that was required on the west coast. Some people call this lighting with the jars explosion proof.

I have been told they were used in to the 50s. I have a picture with Wayne 100s and Wayne 505s with them on the pumps.

Heres some I have. they are pretty straight so I'm thinking about maybe putting them back together-would need quite a few parts, Question-Did Tokheim ever make a lower short? Or maybe this one got cut a bit? never saw a 300 with a window like that, but I don't know these all that well...

[quote=MATT ALVAREZ]I was looking at a Tokheim manual yesterday trying to find model info. I did not but found this info. Here is the nozzle used and here is a schematic on the hose safety shut off. These were required in some states. Also here are some lighting schematics. The lighting on the right is the vapor proof that was required on the west coast. Some people call this lighting with the jars explosion proof.


Hey Matt, what was the date of the manual you are referencing? I always thought that the 39's used the 1093 nozzle and I looked through the manual I have that I think is from 1953. Mine shows the 1093 nozzle as the one used on those models. The Milwaukee nozzle in your book was the one I thought was used on the 36 models, maybe others too, but the older ones nonetheless. Just curious as to the dates they might have used different nozzles on the 39's. Maybe Jack can shed some light on the subject, I know he has always said that the nozzles weren't necessarily an item that the pump companies furnished with a new pump but since these Tokheim manuals show these as ones used they must have at least recommended them.....GB

Here's my one and only restored Tok 39a.. restored about 4-5yrs ago... had the original adglasses so the pump ended up in that livery.

Still got two more in suit resto condition awaiting for resto... maybe done in the next decade :-)

I was looking through old pictures. I found this 39 that I bought in 2007. I started restoreing it and a friend wanted it so I sold it to him. He finished it along with the other two he already had.

For starters, Thank you Braden for volunteering to resurrect the POTM thread. I'm a pump guy and will be forever grateful for your selfless actions. I appreciate the time and effort you will be putting into this.

Very informative posts and pic's by everyone elseas well.

I like Tokheim 39's. In my opinion, a perfect first pump. They are plentiful and easy to come by and an easy pump to disassemble and reassemble. Original and reproduction parts are readily available.

When, I first started collecting. I bought, these 19 Tokheim short 39's in one deal from one gentleman. I've restored and sold most of them since. Here's some photo's will dig up some more later today.

Those two pic's of my truck and trailer bring back some neat memories. I started collecting in late 2004, early 2005. That was a pretty good score considering I had only been collecting for less than a year.

Here's a few of those pumps restored will try to dig up some more photo's hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Wish, I worked this fast now. Got them in Oct, and by mid Dec had one all restored. I never did restore the Mobil, I left it alone. I think, it's cool how the red paint has faded to pink.

It's not often you see a real Polar Bear rug or a minty Ford V8 sign. My daughter is now 5 years old...she's 2 in that picture. She's still my best helper, ever!!!
