Happy New Year!!

The pump of the month for January 2019 is the Bennett 300 and 500 series pumps. 300 series pumps have a pipe frame, and 500 series have an angled iron frame. These pumps are fairly common in the 371 and 541's. They have a fantastic style to them. Some models are hard to find and rare too. What a great looking pump. Participate if you can with history, pictures of your pumps, or old station photos with them if you have them.

Here is the models included in this months thread:

-Bennett 371: 1934-1941. Came in 2 or 4 ad glass models. Original cost was $220.
-Bennett 373: 1934-1941. Clockface model. Came with no ad glass, 2 ad glass, 4 ad glass. Either electric or even hand operated visi gauge model.
-Bennett 372-F: 1934-1941. Twin computing model with each pump having 4 ad glass panels.
-Bennett 383-B: 1934-1941. Computer version. 2 ad glass.
-Bennett 541: 1939-1941. Came in no ad glass, 2 or 4 ad glass models.
-Bennett 542-F: 1940-1941. Twin pump with 4 ad glass pumps. 2 individual bases bolted together.
-Bennett 543-B: 2 ad glass model.
-Bennett 543-F: 1939-1941. 4 ad glass model.
-Bennett 546-B, 555-B, 566-B, 567-B: 1940-1941. High sight glass above the face. Came with the option of an ad glass panel within the face opening. Could've came in clockface non electric model with a visi gauge and hand operated.

Thank you everyone and I hope 2019 goes great for all of us out here in OldGas!!

Rough but awesome! These are one of my favorite pumps. I will post several but will start with my very first pump I got in 1995. It is a 541 and still have it today.

Happy New Year to all!!!
Braden thanks once again for your efforts on bringing this pump thread to us every month! I and others here have a special love for these pumps! This pump happens to be one of my favorite pumps. In fact since I started collecting in 1994 I have managed to keep every one I ever bought except for two. I let go of a parts pump that Matt Alvarez ended up with and a traded off one that I bought that had been restored. I simply collect and have no reason to sell these. I am somewhat attached to every one in my collection.
I will post pictures of them .

Enjoy,
Rob

Here is the rest of mine. Unlike Rob I was not able to keep all the 300, 500 Bennett`s that came into my possession. I let go of 10 but still have 15. Later in the month I will post the ones I sold.

Here is another old photo. These are Canadian, notice the round emblems instead of the winged Bennett emblems. Also the "You Can Be Sure of Shell" ad glass are Canadian.
