Off topic antique model gas pump source

Post by Phil »

I recently built a replica of a Model T pickup truck. I'd like to find an antique model gas pump source to buy a pump to display with the car.
Any help is appreciated.

I thought you were talking about a full size vehicle. I was gonna say, no pump but I've got some "actual" antique parking meters.

I did a 1930 Duesenberg that had a old gas pump, but it was years ago and I can't find the file. If you look at the attached picture, it would sure easy to model.

Great job on the Duesenberg. The gas pump looks like it would be a good choice for my Model T. Any idea how tall the gas pump is. I've found sources for 5" tall pumps and I'm not sure that is tall enough. Your pump looks fine with the Duesenberg.

If I remember the base of the pump was 1/2" thick, so by scaling the picture in Rhino, the pump should be 6" tall. Of course the car is only about 4" tall, so if your Model T pickup is larger, I would make the pump larger.

The Model T that I built is about 6" tall, so I would put the height of the pump maybe 7" or whatever looks good.
