This pump is painted EXACTLY like my first pump I restored which was a Bowser 575 in Phillips 66. Awesome looking pump even if the colors are not historically correct for Phillips 66. Your Hancock pump looks great already.

Thank you.

Got my order from Vic's today, been in the garage playing around. Still waiting on the trim to get here. And I still need to send off the Veeder Root. The "Contains Lead" plates are Originals, everything else is repop. I need to run to home depot to get some stuff for the light manifold, but this sucker will light up tonight.. LOL here are some pics.









Looking for anything Hancock, Signal, Veedol/Flying A and Richfield

Gas pumps made me quit drinking on a regular basis.
It was not wise to be hitting bulk plants, farms, and businesses hung over or with alchohol on your breath.
Then there were the constant hours on the road.
Plus after spending all my money, I had something to show for it. Something that could be transformed into more cash, for more junk hunting.
Gas pumps are good for you!!!!!

But that was so long ago, the drinking age was 18 when I was 18.

DB, take your time with the ad glass, I have a sub for now (lol) anyways, she is 95% done. The last 5% being the computer. I will try to get some pics when it is dark and the pump lit up. Gas pumps are addicting, I am already looking for another one, lol
