Solid original Fry Model 17R Guarantee Visible 5 Gallon Gas Pump. Metal is very solid and not heavily pitted other than some on the base, no evident rust-through, one spot of heavier rust between two of the panels on the 3 piece base as seen in the pictures. When you look inside there is some rust evident on the edges of the base where the two side panels rest on the base, but it’s not very bad and certainly not visible. It is obviously not complete, what you see is what I have for it and what is missing is available in reproduction. Came out of a service station in Taylor, TX, where it had been stored since the 1950s. It had been converted to a 10 gallon pump using a Rush conversion kit in the day, but the conversion has been removed and it’s ready to be restored back to the rare original 5 gallon pump it originally was. The bottom base for the cylinder and the 5 fingers inside the front cover demonstrate that it is an original 5 gallon Fry pump. I may consider parting it out, if there is enough interest in parts.
