Finally done, well kind of. I am considering doing some "wear" and more "aging". I like it but think it needs more patina. If I make any changes I will add to this thread in the future. Also would like to get more product inside and eventually get the newer red and white stuff out.

This pump was a basket case. It was badly rusted to the point that three of the frame rails gave way and it crumpled to the ground. Things got bent and a few castings were cracked. It was found in a scrap yard in Oregon by a member on here. My good friend Don Sherwood purchased it and then passed it on to me after deciding it was too big of a project. It has all the parts it the upper section and the large meter down in the bottom. The pump and motor were not in it. Well it does not pump gas but it does have a second life as a display piece.

Incredible job Matt! I remember seeing that as a pile of parts, It certainly went to the right place to be brought back to life.


Wanted anything Flying A Gas, Signal Gas, Hancock oil co, and Sunland.

This is what it looked like when I went up for a visit. The 3rd picture was after I pieced it together to make it look like it was more than it really was for a "BUYS of the WEEK" picture. The next set of pictures are building it.
