I have an old National Model 90 pump with Apex double clockface. Metal is in really good shape and am thinking of professional restored. But who restores gas pumps? I live near the Illinois-Indiana state line in area of Lafayette, Indiana to Champaign, Illinois. Indianapolis area to Chicago area would be considered as well. Thanks in advance.

You might have your local GOOD body shop do the painting for it. That is what I have done and I do the rest of the work myself.


Drive with Care and Buy Sinclair!! I buy Sinclair globes, signs, cans, ect.

My first project ..... That was my initial thoughts but thought I would put a feeler out there to see what other options might be. Thanks.

I restored my first and only pump, a 1950 Gilbarco 996 Gas Pump.. took me a couple years, but i was able to salvage most of the original parts, and it works now..

Hey Jim...you would be surprised what you can do on your own. I wanted to do it all myself. I worked on a MS 80 for about 6 months when I had free time. Turned out ok for an amateur restoration.

GAV's in Vincennes Indiana restores gas pumps. I've been in his shop a couple of times and his work seems pretty good although he has never done anything for me personally. His number is 765-586-4539

Hi Jim, I would be interested in talking with you about that restoration. I am located in NE Ohio if not too far away. John
