This is a Gilbert and Barker model #T-176. The pump was built in 1923. The normally clear glass reservoir has “turned” purple indicating that manganese dioxide was used in the glass making process. This process was phased out in the mid-1920’s. (This would further prove this pump was made BEFORE 1925). As you can see, the pump is not gutted. The pump and plumbing are original and intact. It has a reproduction globe, hose, nozzle and price sign (not pictured). The pump is originally from eastern Colorado. It originally was a Bay gas pump, but no reproduction glass lens’ was available. (At least at that time). I wanted to restore it as a Bay as that was a familiar brand of gas where l was raised. So l opted to make it a Mobil instead. This pump has ALWAYS been kept indoors since restoration. It has some scratches (no dents) , courtesy of the 1994 Northridge, California earthquake and falling debris.
