120 people looked at this and not a one could comment on the price of a Wayne 70 probably one of the most common pumps. This site has lost most of its members now I see and can't contribute anymore. SAD

I bought a Wayne 70 maybe six years ago at a swap meet, Iola Wisconsin, for $500. All there, pretty good shape. Looking at ebay sales I'm seeing complete pumps, nothing done to them, going for 1,500 - 2k, which seems high to me! But I don't buy pumps very often.

You live and breath gas pumps, make parts, sell parts for who knows how many years and between you and you buddy can’t come up with a ballpark number on a Wayne 70 seriously.


Wanted early tin litho signage.

Craig...I have bought and sold lots of 70's over the years...the pump in the pic should bring between 1400-1800,
if it is complete with all parts there. Being in primer and all dents taken out, about 1800...IMHO. Warren

Agree-and sometimes it is better to not get an answer!

Warren, I need to get more savvy with current prices. We've had the luxury of pulling from an old stock pile of pumps which is seriously dwindling. How much are say MS80s, Tokheim 39s, and maybe a Bennett 746 going for these days? I see the ebay prices but assume those are out of wack prices.

Paul, I see the above auction information you posted for these pumps included both eBay and independent auction company results. What website or service did you use to find this broader sampling of final pricing results? Thanks. John

I checked the petro value questions section...practically every thread there has an answer. Didn't see your pump question there though. Maybe the general thread section gets more traffic from those that don't know the answer.

John, that's worthpoint.com. Its a site you have to pay a monthly fee to use, I use it enough that its worth it for me. You can search it for free, but it won't show any of the sale prices. I do sometimes turn off the service and then back on again later. It shows old ebay sales which is nice.

$1200 is what I see in my area unrestored and good in good shape. With that one being prepped already probably a little more if you are restoring it. Lots of those pumps around.

As all of us in the hobby knows,, pumps are getting scarce in about every location. And like everything
else, because of the lack of supply, prices will go up . Any tall 40's pumps, 39's, 70's, 646's, etc will bring
1200-1500, depending on condition. Any pump that's in primer with all body work done, like the one Craig
posted, with good porcelain faces and dials that turn freely, should bring 1800-2000, if all trim is there.
The shorter 50's pumps in same condition will bring 800-1000. Again, location, location, location. Pumps
on west coast and PNW will bring more than, say in Boise, ID. Don't use Ebay as a sample for prices, we
all know these prices are crazy. This is IMHO after 32 yrs. hustling pumps..thanks Warren

Craig, There are a whole legion of guys who are no longer posting? I don't know what happened to them? Most of them supplied a lot of common sense and practical knowledge. I knew some of them personally and we helped each other out at times. Things have changed but I still check in daily. Paul
