Gilbert & Barker Vintage Visible Gas Pump Before And After Restoration Condition
We acquired this as a so-called restored gas pump in the condition a lot of fast process restores are found in. In the business, we refer to these as a "20 Footer" (meaning it only looks good from 20 feet or more away). We received this gas pump as shown in the "before" photo. It did not work, had no lighting or covers, the paint was thin and of poor quality. Not only that, but some parts were incorrect, and the gas tank was a plastic insert. It also had a reproduction globe among other issue. In other words, it would have been better off in its original rusty state. However, because of it's extreme rarity, we took this nearly 100-year-old zombie, and restored it back to better than its original glory.

Lion Oil Company Historical Facts
Lion Oil Company, the largest independent supplier of sulfur crude oil, was an oil refinery founded in 1922 by oilman and philanthropist Colonel Thomas Harry Barton (1881-1960) in El Dorado, Arkansas. The Lion Oil grew rapidly with the discovery of oil in the Smackover Field in 1923. The Lion Oil Refining Company produced between 10,000 and 12,000 barrels of oil daily after acquiring 1,600 acre leases in Smackover.
By 1929 Lion Oil moved into wholesale marketing and gasoline sales. Lion Oil was operating over 400 gas stations by 1932 and expanded further after acquiring Marathon Oil properties in 1935 in both bulk plants and service stations.
