Reproduction petrol bowser
« on: December 29, 2017, 01:02:08 PM »
Hi folks

I've always wanted a Petrol Bowser for the garage but i don't think i can justify the cost of about $5k for an original. Have located these reproduction ones which, at $1450 delivered (Melb to Canberra area) is a bit better on the wallet.

A bit of a drive to go and take a look. Any you folks got any advice on the look and build quality of these?

Cheers

Gosford Classic Car Museum has repo ones as well. I think they were a little bit cheaper than that. worth a phone call,

If you're not in a rush, wait for an Ebay 10% off (or better) sale to save yourself some cash.  There was one going for a few days around Boxing Day but I would imagine it's finished by now...
Cheers,
Brian

Have a look on the Nostalgia Highway website. They have lots of different bowsers at a range of prices.
