Gasboy Sinclair Aircraft Gas Pump

These neat little gas pumps were sold to private businesses, farmers, municipalities, and even local airports. I wanted this one to look like it just came out of private airport from the 1950's so that's how I refurbished it.

1958 Bennett 2066 Sinclair Gas Pump

Not one of my normal restorations, this unit is being displayed outdoors so it wasn't stripped down and refurbished from top to bottom. It's the "rat rod" version of gas pumps.

1972 Eco 97 Tireflator - Air Meter

I found this tireflator on ebay and took a chance. The seller had some very blurry photos but luck was on my side because it turned out it was in pretty good shape and well worth the money.

Vintage Eco 97 Tireflator - Air Meter

I restored another ECO Tireflator air meter for the shop since I sold my last one in a moment of weakness. It needed plenty of work but it turned out great and works like a charm.

Custom fabricated RR Crossing Display

This isn't a gas pump, I know, but this is a pretty cool display I'm making for the shop, mancave, garage, etc. This will be standing outside as a fun project I just had to build.

Econolite Crosswalk Signal

Here's another item for the shop that isn't a gas pump but a cool item none the less. I restored it and it's now hanging from the garage/shop informing people when to walk and when not to walk.

1955 Gilbarco "Sales-Maker" Sinclair Pump

I bought this gas pump in Lewiston NY to restore and display in the shop. It had it's share of mice living in it over the years so it took some time to dismantle and clean everything from top to bottom. It had been painted several times over the years so once the tins were  sandblasted my wife and I decided to make this gem a Sinclair Dino gas pump. The frame was painted with urethane single stage white paint, the tins are powder coated green. The porcelain faces are all original and just needed a little touching up. It was completely rewired with all new fixtures and the reproduction globe was added. The faces are reverse decorated polycarbonate (Lexan) and the rubber door seals and window rubber are all new as well. Here are some pictures of the transformation.

1955 AO Smith L-3 Standard Gas Pump

I bought this gas pump in Rochester NY to restore and display in the shop. It had it's share of mice living in it over the years so it took some time to dismantle and clean everything. It was an old Cities Service gas pump at one time (now known as Citgo) but I wanted something a little more colorful. I ended up decorating it as a Standard Oil gas pump.

1947-1951 Bowser 585 - Beeline Gas Pump

I had my eye on this pump when I bought my 1947 Tokheim pump. I couldn't get it off my mind so I ended up going back and buying it a few weeks later. I really wanted a late 1940's Beeline gasoline pump so I decorated this one to fit the bill. I reproduced the Beeline graphics and had the logo on the body printed. The pump was painted with a base coat, clear coat paint and reassembled after all the parts were finished.

1958 Gilbarco 1004B - Texaco Gas Pump

I bought this worn vintage gas pump in pretty rough condition. My wife thought I was wasting my time trying to bring it back to life but one month later she was fully restored.

1961 Tokheim Interceptor 452 Gas Pump

I bought this classic Gasoline Pump in Niagara Falls, NY as a display unit that I used for the entrance to the new shop. All the parts were there but she  needed some special attention. I ended up restoring her into a classic Texaco pump from the early 1960's. I sold this pump to a friend who displayed it at his diner for a few years and I ended up buying it back.

Late 1950's A.O. Smith L-3 Texaco Gas Pump

I bought this classic Gasoline Pump from an ad on my local craigslist. It was literally sitting in a barn and needed a complete restoration. I stripped it down to the frame, dismantled the computer and cleaned all the mouse poop out of it. Some sandblasting, cleaning, and finally painting and she was as good as new.

1947 Tokheim model 39 - Texaco Gas Pump

I bought this vintage gas pump in pretty rough condition but these pumps are downright iconic. It was completely disassembled and I went through it with as much attention spent on the details as I could to restore it.

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.

1950's Gasboy model 100 - Gulf Gas Pump

This Gasboy fuel dispenser was manufactured for vendors who needed a gas pump for private or commercial use but not for retail purposes. There are no price indicators displayed since auto dealerships, farmers, and other owners of these pumps didn't use them for selling gasoline. Because of there low cost and basic design, these pumps were used hard and then scrapped when worn out. I disassembled the entire pump, media blasted a bunch of parts, then repainted the unit with acrylic enamel paint. I replicated the face and wired a display lamp inside the pump.
