While I have not added fuel or tried to light it, it does pump up, hold pressure and hiss when the valve is opened. The friend and fellow collector I bought it from a few years ago told me it was running well before he refurbished it. It has the original Sears Pyrex globe. The fount has been repainted and a period-correct decal has been applied. The vent is in very nice condition with only a few chips on the top.
