Posted By: kjsplichal67 "POTM" Pump of the Month September 2021 - Thu Sep 02 2021 12:55 AM
Hello everyone, I want to thank you all again for the great participation on these posts. The pump of the month for this month is a National A-38 and models similar. This pump and all of these varieties have awesome art deco designs and a beautiful tops with big curved ad glass.

-National A: 1936: External visi and computer.
-National B: Clockface with external visi (Never seen one)
-National A-1: 1936-1940. Computer with internal sight glass.
-National B-1: Clockface with internal sight glass.
-National BM-1: 1936. Computer pump with display case and with internal sight glass. I think it should be classified as AM-1 since B stands for clockface.
-National A-38: 1938-1949. Computer pump with internal sight glass.
-National A-38H: Computer pump with internal sight glass, hose outlet coming out of the base and hung on a hook on the side panel.
-National B-38: 1939. Clockface with internal sight glass.

Thank you to everyone again and I hope we get some good participation for this month. I do not have any of these models listed yet, so here is a picture of a national A-1 out of the book.

Here's my A1. I finally found some NOS Rio Grande Cracked decals, so now it will get a full restoration.


Matt, I really love that Shell pump! smile

My A-38H.

Note the 'banana' hanger and the hose outlet coming out of the base.

According to Scott B, this is the only set of Marathon A-38 ad glass known.

The globe is a reproduction I did a few years ago.

Later . . .

Sharing this for a friend. This is Gas Pump Ronnie’s pump that he wanted me to share with you all. He does a lot of custom pumps that are very unique. This is Ronnie's A38 bomber pump. Gun turrets coming out of glass complete with sound effects. Hundreds of rivets. Steel braid hose. Motorized computer with machine gun sound when running. Note dead pumps notched up on panel. Definitely a unique pump!
