I purchased this from Paul Bell earlier in the year, but must let it go to replace funds used on a classic car that I acquired. The paint on this pump is amazing and flawless. Certainly a work of art... Here is Paul's description of the work completed:

Professional restoration!! The pump is a Martin & Schwartz Model 80. Here’s the list of features:

- All sheet metal and frame sand blasted down to bare metal. Metal sealed with etching epoxy primer.

- Dents removed and surface prepared with multiple coats of catalyzed primer. Primer sanded with increasingly finer grits. Primer sealed.

- Automotive grade color coat / clear coat paint applied. Polly flourescent green and mirror-like black paint!

- Racing stripe graphics are painted, not decals, in multiple colors, buried in multiple layers of clear coat. And yes, it took a lot of measurements and time to get everything to line up just right!

- Clear coat is sanded flat and buffed to a high shine. Angled shots included so you can see the bodywork / paint quality

- The globe body is aluminum, also polished to a high shine.

- The meter is a restored original, not a reproduction. I did not use stickers on the meter numbers. The porcelain faceplate is a reproduction.

- The inside of the pump is also painted.

- All new wiring, including a ground wire (three wire, not two). Dimmer switch added, accessible from the little side door. Easy access ON/OFF switch at the top of the pump.

- New rubber seals on doors, windows, and new hose.




The price is $3750 firm, and that INCLUDES SHIPPING anywhere in the continental US, as long as your location is tractor-trailer accessible. If you wish to pick-up the pump, I will knock $500 off the price.

Jeff,
Can I have your permission to use the top picture in my next Gas Pump ID book? It is much better than the picture I am have in the book.

Thanking you in advance,

Of course Jack! I think Paul would be honored to have his work in your new book.
