I actually purchased this cute Butler Gas Pump almost a year ago over the phone, but since it was all the way up in Montana had hoped that I would find other stuff to go get at the same time so I waited patiently (or not so patiently) to go get it. Finally last week we jumped in my truck to beat the snow and went to get it and another pump I bought from the same collector. While there I also bought a pretty decent 6' Phillips sign. We arrived just before the snow hit and loaded up and left to get over the mountain to stay the night in Idaho where the storm caught us.
The VMC 33 was the solution to increasing the vending capacity of the VMC 27B. The center of the vending drum was redesigned to hold an additional 6 bottles of soda. This model was produced between 1951-1953.
