Here it is. After I took the blanket off I started to take it apart to do some cleaning and adjusting. I did not get before shots so I waited tell it was back together.

Actually I meant H. Earl Clack since you had the HI-POWER lenses on it.
That is one pump that will look great no matter what brand you go with.
Really nice find.

Very nice Matt. Is this the one you were talking about when you listed your truck?

Looks as though you only have an inch or so before it's on the roof. smile

Not sure what I am going to do it in. I put the Hi-Power on because it went with the orange. I think it may have been Gulf originally. The base has some blue paint on it.

Matt- your killing me. It's really a great pump. Congratulations. Looks to be a great Gulf survivor. Its your pump but maybe wait awhile before doing anything with it. Personally I would pay a lot more for an original Gulf pump of that magnitude than a "restored to anything" one.
You did great. I would sell some thing near and dear to me to get one too...

WOW!! Super cool pump. I don't ever recall seeing any pics of these pumps back when they were in use. Does anybody have any pics? I would love to see the station they were used at. Makes me wonder if the station would have been as art deco as the pump. Congrats on the pump Matt!

cry Matt.......I remember I kidded you when you first put the ad under "wanted" for this pump. I would have never thought that all you have to do is ask, and you shall receive!! Really a GREAT looking original. The corner pieces look new. Just cleaned? no one is repro'ing them are they? Best wishes, Ed.
