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??!!
Steve Coppens Always interested in Sunoco items! Really want a Sunoco National pump ad glass!!
