Default Eco Air Meter Tireflator

Hello all,
I'm interested in finding an old Eco Air Meter from the 50's. Anyone have one laying back they would be willing to part with?
Thanks,
Mickm

Thanks

I can imagine finding those would be harder than hitting the lottery.

They are cool and there are some still out there but, you need to win the lottery to be able to afford one. Unless, you can find one owned by someone who is not a collect and just wants to get it out of their way.
Cheers!

Well, I hit the lottery.
I found exactly what I have been looking for about 30 minutes from my house. And at a price less than you will pay for most project pumps.
This is an all original pump that has been repainted in Gulf colors. It has been in the guys house for 15 years. I couldn't be more pleased!
Here it is.

Cheers!

Default Air tower

My buddy found one of these and restored it. It is a functioning air tower. The bell rings when filling and everything!! Pretty cool. It is quite accurate too!!!

nitroratrod, I have found these units to be very durable. I hooked mine up to my compressor and it too worked, bell and all.

havasu, These are very cool in the shop and get a lot of attention. They make reproduction units that are cheaper but I haven't seen one in person to comment on how they look. I did read where they don't actually work. I'd rather have an original.
Cheers!
Mickm

Default Pickers

Hey Mickm:

Just last week I saw on American Pickers they bought one for like 300 dollars unrestored.

I used one of these in my high school days at the Gulf station I worked at. It was Gulf Orange and looks just like the one posted.

Do you have other toys to post?
