I was asked by a friend In Ohio if I could help him out by picking up an A38 pump that he found on EBay. I told him I would go pick it up and decided to make an adventure out of this . I hope you enjoy this short video . I was blessed with finding and buying Bennett 150 with the guts still intact!

Thanks for watching my video,
Rob

Cool video! When that pump came up 4sale, the pics showed pics & looked like pieces of the broken lens on the ground?

You should have snagged the Texaco pole.


I am always looking for anything Texaco or Oklahoma oil and gas company's, also I am a newbie at seeking globes.

Thanks for all the compliments.

Chris, You are right when I arrived part of one lens was laying on the ground next to the pump.

Steve, The pump plates are reproduction unfortunately.

Ron, The owner of that Texaco pole is saving it for me. I did not have the trailer with me that day.

The video kind of got me thinking about "celebrity" gas pumps, if there is such a category, lol. (I've collected early movie memorabilia from the 1930's and 40's for over 30 years.) Seeing the pump was on Gale Gordon's ranch was interesting and got me wondering if there are any others in California collections that came off of a celebrity's property. My friend Bob went to Gettysburg last weekend and sent me a couple pics from President Eisenhower's farm. Not meaning to "hijack" Rob's post, but thought I would share the pics he texted me.
Could you imagine the value that would be attached to a pump owned by Steve McQueen?!

Hey Darin,
Thanks for posting the pictures! Interesting you brought up Steve McQueen. The Steve McQueen ranch is only 15 miles from my place. Dick Bennett bought several of his visible pumps when he passed away. I bought the pump he had at his airport hanger in the Santa Paula airport. No documentation though , so no extra value.

That's interesting Rob....I would still write down the history of the pump you have.
While you may not have any documentation from the initial purchase, yours is still valuable to keep with it IMO.
