This fabulous doubled-sided fuel pump is thought to date from the 1960's and it's not hard to imagine Steve McQueen roaring up alongside it for a mid race refill. More compact than many of the period gas pumps that pass through our hands, it stands just 132cms tall and has a pump assembly on both sides. The facing is the same on the reverse of the cabinet so the pump would have allowed two drivers to fill up simultaneously.
It has undergone a sympathetic restoration at the hands of our experts but of course no longer works as a fuel pump. That said, we did recently have an enquiry from someone who wanted to turn one of our vintage petrol pumps into a beer dispenser and this remains a project that we'd love to take forwards. The conversion doesn't come cheap however, so only well-heeled, beer loving motorsport fans need apply!
