It’s hard for me to tell from the pic I thought this might be the same make model. I am a member of a group on Facebook and saw this thought it might be one like it. I even redacted the Facebook members info even though it’s being used to assist in identifying, not sure why all caps .

Pretty close, but I don’t think it’s the same pump. Could be wrong but loks like it has a tapered casting on the pump in the 2nd pic....& the one in the 3rd pic doesn’t....& all of the opening doors don’t lok to be on the pump in pic 3?? Chris

I am about 95% sure this pump is a version of one that I added to the new gas pumps book. It was made by the Visible Measure Gasoline Dispenser Company of Louisville, KY. The owner of the company last name was "Brady" and he patented many pumps, but only one has been found. It was sold in a auction in eastern Indiana in 2016. It was probably made abound 1920.
