John,that chevelle just came back from the upholstry shop to do a few finish detail things, we did a body off hot rod resto on it, 460 hp 383 with a 700r4 trans and 4wheel disc brakes that was bought new in 67 by the owners grandma and she said do what you want just dont change the color so it still kinda looks like grandmas car, thanks for the compliments on the pump It did come out well and the customer is very happy, I'm getting ready to start on his next pump tomorrow..Frank

Frank, I hope the next one isn't quite so heavy. That thing was a LOAD to move (twice!!) Might be the nicest resto I've ever seen on a pump.

So... How much is a restored single Bowser (same model pump as a single) worth?

I wonder if you could say that all the value is in the mid casting? 30,000 bucks minus value of single Bowser, minus extra cylinder and top = value of double mid casting? That's one expensive mid casting!!

As far as I know there isnt a single of that pump, Tom I had to move it many times you were lucky to only help twice, The next pump is a clear vision twin so eat your wheatys it's a heavy one too

I think if you crossed that single with a c-81 it would be close but that has the regular style base where the 81 has a similar base to the twin

I had the opportunity to see this beautiful restoration at the gas bash. It was totally one of the best I have ever seen and my hat is off to him. I have wanted one of those pumps for years and I mean about 20 of those. There is the single version or what comes close is the Square single c-51. If anyone knows of a Wayne oval double please let me know.

By the way, the picture of that beautiful pump does not even come close to the workmanship and beauty of that pump, especially after seeing it in person.

Nice job on the Bowser/Gilmore pump, Frank. I like how you did the domes and the checkered base... pretty cool!

Here's Mine. Not nearly worth $30,000 and nowhere close to Frank's awesome restoration.

Jason, I know you said it had homemade skins, Is it shortened or is it just the angle? Nice pump, You got a great deal on it...Frank

Thanks Frank. It's definitely the angle. I was on a ladder when I took the picture. That ceiling is over 11 ft tall and the globes are less than an inch from touching it. I'm going to have to build a barn or shop to get it indoors.
