Well, this video in my YouTube feed certainly got my attention.

Gas Pump Heaven, a company based in Omaha, Neb., posted this video today of its newest replica gasoline pumps:

Best of all, the pumps are made in America.

I didn’t see the pumps on the company’s website, but similar commemorative gas pumps it offers range in price between $600 and $1,200. If you drop them a line, they’d probably be happy to talk to you about them. Based on the video, the owner seems to be a roadie himself.

Only one problem… it’s still not possible to get something which looks like a historic pump but is actually usable to sell fuel.

From the FAQ at http://www.gaspumpheaven.com/shop/pages.php?pageid=7

Do you carry “used” parts?
No, we carry reproduction, non-working pump parts only.

I never assumed these were working pumps, but decorative only.

Made in the USA is a plus.

Good story. Thanks Ron. I had these folks site bookmarked, as I have a Bowser 555 pump front/door that I want to turn into the front of a storage cabinet, built to look like a pump. And these folk have lots of parts to help me do it. And I agree with Frank, it’s nice that parts made in the U.S.A. is a plus.
