I've got a ten gallon Fry and they stand about eight feet tall! Did they really need the extra height by putting them on those cement stands!?!?!

I, too, love these old pictures. Especially when there's an accompanying one showing the same scene now.

Jay, Thanks for the great picture. I have a restored 1928 Wayne 615 in Texaco colors, I am a Texaco fan and collect Texaco items, plan on doing a 20's gas station. Also have a 1924/5 closed cab TT to be a Texaco Truck. Jim

Tim, I'm with you! Would love to have one of those pumps, love all old pics, old buildings, old cars. Charley, they may not be hard to find, but they ARE hard to afford!! :-)

Tim, you are right we are in pigeon forge,tn @ the Grand Rod Run and there are several visible pumps here restored for sale but they are $4500 and $6500. A little much for me. Really cool pumps though! Tim

I have an unrestored one of these. Needs glass, but would restore nicely, which I plan to do.

It is an interesting story on how I obtained my 492 Wyane gas pump. A lady called me and said she had an old gas pump for sale and was I interested. She lived in semi rural area near Minneapolis, Mn. She had heard that I bought old things. She had called an local antique shop and they told her to bring it in and they would consider it. So she called me and I told her on would drive out to see the pump. They has just bought this old farm house. The pump was still hooked up and sat so it could not be viewed from the road. I was surprised when it turned out to be a Wayne visible. I had always wanted a visible pump and this was the first one offered to me as found. Needless to say I bought it and returned the next day with my tailor and brought it home. The on the top was still the holder for the make of gasoline, but that glass was mostly missing. It had been for GOLF Oil. The glass for tank had bullet holes in it. I was pleased when it turned out to be the "rarest" gas pump and most sought after.

So, what did your tailor think about it? :-) Ain't "auto-correct" fun!
I remember as a kid we went on a vacation into Mexico, probably around 1960, and there were many stations where visible pumps were still in use.
While I have my Dad's Chevron sign (a bit beat up, unfortunately) I've never had a pump. I'll post some pictures in a new thread of a still standing Richfield Station and Tower--its a house now, but pretty original.

I have a 5 gallon visible May West style pump with I think the original glass. Has the fry stamp on it
.Am sure there are others, but I have never seen a 5 gallon.
