This compressor was advertised in the US Divers catalogues from 1958 to 1965 and sold for just $475. It was called the 'Alize Portable Compressor', USD Product Number 2200. The catalogue claims it "weighs only 65 pounds, fills a standard tank in 1 hour and 15 minutes, 2800 psi maximum and is powered by a 2 3/4 hp Clinton gas engine. It is equipped with a flexible filler attachment with pressure gauge plus a combination air purifier and oil separator". It would be the crowning touch for a vintage scuba or Sea Hunt display.
This is a genuine, Made in France, Aqua Lung product, serial number 1239. The Clinton, GEM engine is 2 1/4 horsepower, Cast Iron Sleeve, serial number 8172 . I do not have the tank or the motor that ran this compressor. If I find the rest of the parts to make this unit complete in the future I will make a follow-up video and a demonstration of it actually working
