Here is mine, the one on the right is original and the one on the left I'm looking for a fluted pedestal. Do not know value, but Jacks book value is 5,000.

Charley maybe yours was made for a air whip. Never seen one like it before. You don't see these very often. Maybe some other members will post.

An air whip is a tall vertical pipe that is attached to the compressed air supply by a spring. A hose is attached to the top of the air whip pipe. The hose can then be pulled over to the other side of a car to fill a tire and then it springs back to vertical and out of the way.

Excellent,thanks for that.I recently stopped at a service station on a nearby motorway just out of Sydney,and while using the airline to pump up the tires,I couldn't help but thinking that the modern pump is so similar in operation as the model 26 (but digital dial),,you dial up the pressure required,when you reach it a bell goes DING,however no sign of an airwhip or anything to perform the same fonction,its more of a snake system,,,hose just gets chucked on the ground,damn colonials lol

I imagine the spring-loaded and counter-weighted air whips sometimes scratched cars and injured people back in the day.

If that was a fire hydrant. It would be to tie up horses back in the day. I think the top was added later. Still looks better than the originals.
