Bowser 575, Serial 648861 and Atlas battery charger. The Bowser was a spare and never used, still has tags on it. Bolted to little wood pallet. Some wear from storage!
Both Never restored! No hose with it, and some numbers have pealed over time (check links..more pics). Should be about 70 years old.
Atlas is in great shape also.
Very rare to find one in this condition! Motivated to sell...wedding to pay for!
Asking $2,200.00 for both. Pick up only, no shipping.
Thanks
John

Pretty amazing a NOS pump. I believe there was one on the site last year. It will be an easy choice in the age old argument "do I restore it or leave it alone?"

This pump may have never been used, but would it leave the factory with paint over spray on the inside of doors? Looks like the outside has been repainted for some reason. Just curious.

Over spray is common. I’ve had many many original pumps with that look. At the factory it was get it painted and get it out. They weren’t restoring them it was production line mentality. Looks good to me.

Regarding the over spray, I agree with Done4 about production line mentality. In one of the photo bucket pics you can see the factory sticker slapped on the inside door.
I did make a mistake, this is a 575R model. Remote pump. I have a few copies of the literature on the remote pump. My father-in law that I got the pump from wanted to keep the originals.
He also gave me a copy about the Mag-i-trol , and some regarding the Tokheim Lo-boy model no 39-L HR. I will scan and post elsewhere on this site, if anybody wants to see it.

Price drop.....$1,400 O.B.O. ....a bargain!!! I was told the value of the pump itself was $1500-2000. Throw in the bonus of the beautiful Atlas battery charger ,and you can’t go wrong! Both are around 1947-48.
Thanks
John

Darin his pics are time stamped 2012. Probably the reason for question.
Lot can happen in 6 years if not stored proper.

Thanks for pointing that out Loyd, I didn't see that. And I agree that a lot could happen in THAT amount of time if improperly stored.
I thought it was a funny question to ask, now I understand.

Thankfully nothing has changed! If you click on one of the links, it will take you to my photo bucket account. I have old and new pics posted. New being taken mid September. Was trying to upload for this post but my stupid home computer keeps locking up! Using iPhone now. If the computer gods allow I’ll post them in a little!!!
Thanks
John
