Pick up this Fry today! It had a super slick restore done about 10 or 12 years ago with a lot of chrome and polished brass but has been out side since finished. Needs a little work!

Got these MINATURE pumps from Don Sherwood. These pumps were built from scratch by Master craftsman Bill LaRosa of Los Angeles in mid 90's. They go well with my steel trucks.
Very few were made. The pin-striping is something else.
Pumps originally got a ride with Don from CA to OREGON & returned back to CA again! They got to see part of AMERICA! laugh

BIG THANKS to DON for helping me out!

Is it the same guy that built the hand made steel trucks that made these pumps?

If so we need some pictures of his work in progress. Somebody needs to learn what he does...

No, not the same person. Bill LaRosa made these pumps from scratch. HE also did great FANTASY steel trucks from existing toy truck cabs. Bill stopped doing work on steel trucks in 1998.

The other craftsman that did the SUNBEAM BREAD, forms everything from sheet of steel. He does not like to show his work as he is not computer savvy or has access to a camera. Believe me, I would also like to see his work as well. He tells me, he forms everything by hand! That is all I can picture.
