1956 Gasboy model 200 compact Gas Pump

These compact fuel pumps were primarily used by farmers or fleet owners who needed a pump that could be used as a direct burial unit or as an on the go unit used to extract fuel (kerosene, diesel, gasoline, etc) for their equipment. They also needed to keep track of how much fuel they drew from their tanks. These pumps were used and abused so finding one that's still around is unusual. I found it for sale locally and during one weekend I dismantled it and gave it the full treatment. It was a pretty basic restoration but it turned out nice and makes for an interesting conversation piece in the shop.
