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!

I saw the pump in person at Fred Stokes Gas Bash as well. It was truly amazing!!! Frank is an outstanding painter...

Frank I will be calling you about doing my Bowser Xacto Sentry 318.

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.
