This gas pump was pretty rough when I got it. Restored it myself. Of course the globe and decals are repros, but everything else is original.
It came from a farm that a cousin of mine owned in the mid-Willamette Valley of Oregon. He called me one Monday evening and said that he had three of these old pumps on the farm and I could come and take my pick if I wanted one. I was really excited! So the next Saturday, bright and early, I went out to look them over and I knew I was coming home with one. When I met my cousin at the farm he told me that since we talked, someone came and stole the two really nice pumps, but if I wanted this old junker I could have it....
When I got it home my wife saw it and told me it was junk and now I'd probably have to pay to dump it! That's all the incentive I needed to show her she was wrong. Now, don't get me wrong, I love my wife, but once in awhile she's wrong and I'm right!....not often, but once in awhile.

    Thanks. I had the 'skins' bead blasted and then did some bondo and lots of sanding. The original glass has a few 'BB' holes in it, but other than that it's now in pretty good shape....if you don't look too close at my paint job that is.
    Now my wife tells me it clashes with her hosue color...I tell her that the house color clashes with my gas pump!

    I love this pump, I wish I could find some Gilmore signs for my man cave.
