Hi guys. I have a STEEL tubed, double script Ford tire pump. My question is....were the handles painted or left natural when new?
I understand that the steel tubed pump is a late one, as the earlier examples had brass tubes. It would stand to reason that as time went on Ford would have omitted the painting of the handle.
Any input will be greatly appreciated.
Well I have an original brass double tube pump, and all I can say is the handle is natural. I think that's how they were from day one. Not hundred percent positive though.
They were black.
Thanks Tim and Larry.
