Here is an artists rendering that shows the winged "A" decal on the end of the shoebox body. The second picture is from a small foldout Bennett brochure. It has some information on the 135, 145, 155 and 165.





I think this is a 135 with the Vento type eliminator with See-gauge refill.

Here is a couple stations with Erie 771s. They could possibly be 77s but I think they are 771s.

This is what the shoe box holder looks like for an Erie 77 and 771.

Here is a Fling A station with a couple shoe box pumps. One is a Tokheim 36B-TW and the other looks like an Erie 771.

I am glad there is some enjoyment from this thread. I am out of stuff until I come across some pictures or get new pumps. It would be nice if anyone had something to add to it.

Here is a couple pictures from four years ago. For a short time I was lucky enough to end up with two extra shoe box globes. One ended up on my Wayne 70 and the other on my Gilbarco 89. I still wanted to do more pumps so I contacted Paul Bell about making them. His Erie 70 tops are nice and knew he could do a nice shoebox body. Now I can do more shoebox pumps. Maybe there are collectors out there buying them to top off their pumps. Hopefully some will end up on this thread.

I did this pump about a year ago and realized I did not add it to this thread. It technically is not done. I still need to put the vertical trim moldings on the back door and put some decals on the doors. It is a Bowser 565.
