I was at Iowa Gas about 12 years ago when I first saw this National A-38 for sale. I had just bought 2 Wayne 60's and was out of money (had to borrow the money for those). A friend of mine bought the pump, brought it home, didn't do anything with it and let it sit in the same spot for 12 years. I have relentlessly been trying to buy this pump all those years with no luck till last weekend. When I went to pick it up it was stuck to the floor from all those years. I'm kind of partial to Deep Rock and I need a blue pump for the lineup. The original color was red but the cracked and crazed blue paint has been on there for many many years. I plan to keep it original as found with the paint and ad glass. I will completely tear it down and clean, wet sand the paint, rewire, install decals, install white cloth hose, etc. in the coming few months. I will post pictures of the completed rustoration. Also, I need an original reset crank and a stainless globe block off plate for this A-38 if anyone has these for sale.

Cool pump. Mick, you know me too well. I had a chance to buy a globe like that add glass back when I first started collecting this stuff, still kicking my cheap a@@ for not buying it.
Good luck on the resto.
