So it's been about 4 1/2 years that I've been in the hobby and here is the start of my first resto. Since lossing the love of my life Melissa, (Oh how I miss her so bad), so I've had to find things to occupy my mind. So here we go.
From what I've run across so far, I could not have picked/found an easier pump to do. The guts were 90% already gone, and mechanically this pump is more or less a piece of cake. Although I do see a broken knuckle or two on some of those pipe joints.
Of course it will be Sunoco. Even though after looking through over 400 vintage Sunoco pics I have, I didn't find one 39. Tall or short. But who cares.
Pump is very solid!! Makes it much easier!!
I have a sandblast shop near by and a body guy from a local Jaguar dealership that I'm hoping is going to do the paint and body work on the side. He's fixed my mom's car a time or two and has done a great job.
We'll see how it goes and I'll keep you updated.
Of course, the pumps name is, Melissa. Isn't she gorgeous??!!
