I have been working on this for a while. The only thing left to do is have all the glass cut and install it. It just has card board shelves right now.

Very nice Matt!
Gives me some inspiration as to how I want mine to look! It'll be different but it will be hard to top the display you have created there! Congratulations on a job well done!

I think it's obvious Matt is as much a fan of original pumps as anybody could be, so I think it's safe to trust his judgement.

The black around the face looks awaesome, as does the whole pump.

Thanks guys. I do like unrestored pumps but this one was not nice enough to leave alone. Some one had sandblasted and primed the upper part except one face bezel before I got it. I tried to make it as accurate as possible. I found evidence that it had a black stripe surrounding the face bezel. I decided not to put it on. Some did not have it. Here is a picture of the unblasted bezel with some of the repaint chipped off.

Dave, I did not remember who I bought the truck from. Glad I got it from an oldgasser. It goes well with my Buddy L Shell tanker. Here is the Firestone with an original Firestone store catalog.
