The Gilmore Frank restored is awsome. It dose not look as good in the picture as it dose in person.


I like shoebox pumps [Linked Image]

John,that chevelle just came back from the upholstry shop to do a few finish detail things, we did a body off hot rod resto on it, 460 hp 383 with a 700r4 trans and 4wheel disc brakes that was bought new in 67 by the owners grandma and she said do what you want just dont change the color so it still kinda looks like grandmas car, thanks for the compliments on the pump It did come out well and the customer is very happy, I'm getting ready to start on his next pump tomorrow..Frank

Frank, I hope the next one isn't quite so heavy. That thing was a LOAD to move (twice!!) Might be the nicest resto I've ever seen on a pump.

So... How much is a restored single Bowser (same model pump as a single) worth?

I wonder if you could say that all the value is in the mid casting? 30,000 bucks minus value of single Bowser, minus extra cylinder and top = value of double mid casting? That's one expensive mid casting!!
