Hello folken....

Name is Chris, and my wife and I inherited some gas pumps and other petroliana from her Dad. He was quite a guy and left us with quite a.... blessing. wink

He had three or four pumps and we are trying to find out more info about them.

This one is a Sinclair Dino visible pump with a bunch of extras. He said it was real and restored, but I need verification on that. I haven't been able to find any info hardly on the American Oil Pump & Tank Company as per the metal placard on the pump.

Anyone have any comments on this pump? Any info at all would be appreciated, thanks and God Bless!

Chris

First of all, the oil companies did not make pumps. They were made by companies such as American, so what you have is an American pump that was branded Sinclair. I identify 33 different American visible pump is my Gas Pump Bible identification book, but I can't find one that is exactly like yours. None of my pictures show a top (bonnet) that flares out at the bottom. Your pump appears to have a tapered cylinder surround, the cylinder is straight, but the rods supporting the top are slanted. Is there any other ID tags on the pump? If so, please post them here. I have never owned an American so I can't identify it, but I am sure someone here on OG will recognize it and give you an answer.

I sure looks like her dad did a very nice job in his restorations

Jack & Cindy,

Thanks for the reply. Interesting that it doesn't match anything you've seen. He didn't restore it, it was bought in that condition.

I only have two more pics than the ones I posted right now, but when I go there next I will take more. It's an hour away from me.

Here's a couple more. Anything you'd like to see that I am not getting in these images? Any way I can get more info on this? I also have two or three more, but regular ones. You can see part of a red one in the images.

Thanks again and God Bless!

Next time you go over there i'd just look them over really well for anymore marks, dataplates, etc. You never know how these pumps were restored and what was used. Jack it looks like the top is straight if you compare the rods with the cinderblock wall. Might be just an angle of the camera? Just my eyes anyway.


I'd love to see some good pics of the Red Bennett Texaco pump next to it as i'm in the process of restoring one of mine.

I think you are correct about the cylinder and the rods, just a little confusing.
