I picked this "thing" up today....I'm wondering just how rare this is. The pump is a Bowser Model 22C "Siamese Twin".."Lane Oriented" double pump.Ad glass is supposed to go in the face...in the "prongs"...over the exposed light bulb.
It is listed in one pump book as very rare. How many of you guys out there have one?...may give a clue as to how rare these actually are. There is a similiar (older I believe)Model 22 with different doors and faces. If anyone has restored one post a picture...never saw a restored one!

I have not run across one yet. I think they call it the siamese rol-way. I have a similar pump that Tokheim built. May look nice restored. Good luck!

Nice shape,
Very rare as is the early model. I used to collect doubles and only owned one of the bowsers during that time.
Would look nice done in different types on each side.

I bought out a bulk plant a few years ago. We got six of these pumps in the deal. They are neat but boy are they heavy and akward to move. I sold them all and have seen pictures of the restorations. They looked KILLER! Sold one to Vic's and the last one to Chip Flohe. I see them from time to time but they certainly are not that common.
