I found this photo on the internet the other day, and there are two Conoco gas pumps in the lower left portion of the photo. I have looked through the latest Jack Sim gas pump Bible, but I am stumped. The photo is from 1935 and the pump appears to have the following characteristics:

a) Tall straight rectangular one-piece body
b) Square face
c) Thin cap on top
d) Light with shade just above pump face
e) No sight glass attached on the outside

The closest I can find is the Wayne 861, but the Wayne 861 has an external sight glass and a larger cap on top (see second attachment).

Can anybody identify the pumps?

Thanks.

Andy

Tough to tell but look like American pumps to me

Tops sure don’t look like 861s to me.

Yes, you are right. I do not know what I was thinking.

My guess is American 488s but I could definitely be wrong:
