I recently bought some pumps from a gentleman, one was this Tokheim 300, it had the original Site Ethyl add glass in both doors. We later found the globe, which I purchased and put on the pump. I kept the pump original but did shoot it with a satin clear coat. I'm not sure if the Cresyl 110 plates are correct, but they were on the doors, so I left them. My question is, does anyone know the history of Site Gas. I grew up in the St. Louis, MO area and I remember the stations. There is no mention of the company in any of Jack's books. Sure, wish he was here to give a call to. My thoughts are they were a small independent company with a small regional area of service. Also what would the value of the original site globe and add glass be worth . Any info would be appreciated. Thank you in advance

Site oil Co was out of Clayton MO and was founded in 1930. They were in the mid-west and sold gas under the Cresyl name and are still in operation today. The globe in from the 1960's and had curved glass or flat gas. This info is from Scott Benjamin guide to gas pump globes. Richard
