Earlier in the thread there was a Tokheim 36B-TW posted that had a Super Shell decal on it. Here it is restored.

Here is a station with short Bowsers. This is the only short shoebox pump I have seen. I have been told there were also short 39 shoebox pumps.

Sinclair station with Shoebox Globes, I believe this station was located in Wisconsin. It's the only photo I've ever seen with non-Tydol family Shoebox globes.

Cool photo Aaron. That is like the photo in waynes book that had Texaco shoebox globes. Same Bennett 155s with Bennett computers. Those look like just shoebox bodies with decals placed on there with the lenses removed. I wonder if Bennett tried to sell these pumps with the shoeboxes to other companies since the 155 was the first shoebox pump

Matt, I see you have changed your signature line. Could have fooled me.

I do not know what to think of this pump. Other than this one I have never seen a shoebox pump before the 1936 Tidewater special pumps. It looks like the holder on top could be from a Wayne 60T. I found this picture on line several years ago.

This is the first Wayne 60T I have seen or heard of. It was posted here on oldgas around 2007 or 2008.

Here is a Bennett 155 that belonged to Tom Schilling. He decided to let it go and it is now in a new home. I do not know who the new owner is.

These were at a Matthew`s auction in 2010. Back then I really needed a shoebox globe for my green 60T. I decided I was going to try real hard to get one. I bid a lot (today it would be a steel)and ended up with the Ethyl. That body ended up being the one that was used to make the mold for the reproduction shoebox bodies. Luck was with me that week, I was given a lead on another shoebox that I ended up buying.

Here is a little information on the Tydol to Flying A transition. I am not 100% sure this is how it went. If some one knows for sure hopefully they will let us know. This first change in the transition was to add decals to globe lenses and to the ends of shoe box bodies. The first picture shows a decal on a Tydol globe. The second change was to make new globe lenses and shoe box lenses with a winged "A" added below the word "Tydol". The third change added the word "Flying" in between "Tydol" and the winged "A" and the last change deleted the word "tydol". The second picture shows some different changes in shoe box lenses.
