I wanted to make a model of an antique gas pump to display with the Model T replica that I made recently. I used a 3D model from Thingverse for the pump and a friend 3D printed the pump handle (hard to see, very small). It’s 11” tall The Ford decal was printed on a color laser printer.

Nice addition for the T. I remember seeing some of these as a kid, was always fascinated by them. Also the drive over pit for lubes and oil changes at the same station. As kids we walked there to get a soda out of the tub, had ice and water in it to keep the pop cold.

Nice rendition of an old school “Mae West” style visible pump.

Fill ‘er up with petroleum distillate, post haste!
