Probably came from airport 80/87 and 100/130 are grades of avgas


I collect Phillips 66 and globes pumps & signs esp Iowa co.

Thanks for the help that explains why the other side of the sign only has 100 so they must flip the sign when it is only 100 avgas. He did say he got the pump from a airport.

Well I am thinking about it would you restore it or leave as is? I know it is my pump but if you had it what would you do the only reason I ask is it was green originally.

...um, have you looked to see if it's green porcelain underneath the red paint?...even if it isn't, I'd remove the pump signs...they're not particularly interesting, and not original to the pump...


Looking for better Gulf items: signs, globes, cans and paper - especially porcelain Gulf flanges, and Gulf A-38 & A-62 ad glass...

Very nice National Scott. Looks excellent. Yes, I would remove that 100/130 sign also.

So I pulled the sign off and cleaned and wired up the lights. I am now thinking about putting a globe top on it and putting on a flying a globe what do you think?

Also how do I tell if I have the right top that takes the globe holder? I think there is two tops but not sure thanks for the help.

If it doesn’t already have a globe holder then it’s not a globe top. Chris
