Help me ID some cool stuff My Dad had?

My Dad passed in Jan. He left us 2 acres of stuff. I'd love it if the PBB could help me ID some of the odd/cool stuff we are "discovering" as we wade through. It's like a scene from American Pickers....

Here are 2 gas pumps...if you need better shots let me know and I'll see if I can get better/specific one's for you.

Fuel Pump - I'm thinking 50's?



Another Fuel Pump - 20's?



An old lathe - looks like it was on a Ship - made in Seattle



An even older Lathe - the other half is in the top of the pic:

The red pump in the first picture is a Gilbert & Barker model 80 , made in the mid 1930's

Sorry to hear about your dad.

The heads leaning against the pump look like older dodge hemi. The piece in the last picture with all the gears is a hand operated drill press. They were mounted on the wall and had a iron plate to hold the piece being drilled, yours is missing the plate.

Definitely hemi-spherical cylinder heads, but can't say 100% that they're Mopar-style Hemi heads. I would look into it for sure...though what he has might be industrial style.

I had a cooler like that and a stove too. I restored them and used them for a few years. One day i see an ad for a guy buying these things so I tell him to come have a look. He has a look and flat out tells me i fucked myself on any value because of the restoration. He told me in good unrestored condition they would bring very big bucks.

It does say Etna, this pump has been on the property since I can remember (early 60's). Both my Father and Grand Father had their own businesses and we had our own pump gas for the work trucks.

We have lived on and owned the property since 1919.

I grew up in Etna, a tiny dot on a map, maybe you know where it is. We had one gas station in town, a tiny two pumper and I was wondering if those might have come from there.

Again, sorry about your dad, but these pics are awesome. I can only imagine what cool things he has saved from years past.

Thank you! I looked it up and cannot find one like it on the internet, but I did notice in the pick of the second pump, it also says GB at the top, so I'll assume it's a Gilbert and Barker too.

Great lead...thanks.

I couldn't find any info on an Etna Gas Co., lot of History on Aetna Gas. I do know where Etna is, not too far from me. If you know any old timers out there, it might help me research the pump.

Thank you for the condolences, we had an awesome service for him out at the old Watsonville Speedway..quite a few of his old racer buddy's and former race teams came out to honor him. I was really cool.

Since then it's been a numbing experience going through everything.

I have a couple people from the board helping me get a line on some of the values of some of the bigger items, but it's the stuff like this that I can't find on the internet I need some help with.

I really appreciate the interest and the assistance, this is going to take a while getting it all cataloged, valued and sold.
