Martin & Schwartz 80 "That Good Gulf" Gas Pump (pumps)

Years of Production: circa 1950’s

Manufacturer: Martin & Schwartz Pump Company.  

Martin & Schwartz Pump Company began manufacturing gas pumps in 1922 in Buffalo, NY.  In 1951 M&S was purchased by the Wayne Pump Company.

The Gulf Oil Corporation was formed in 1907 through the fusion of a few oil businesses.  Since that time there have been several different owners.  In 2010, Gulf Oil reacquired all rights, title, and interest to the “Gulf” brand in the United States.

Displayed here is a pump that has been used and stored outside.  You can see the weathered patina of a well used pump.
