Default Quincy compressor

I just picked up a used Quincy compressor I don't know much about it, and neither did the seller. It did build 125 psi. I tried the Quincy web site but their site kinda sucks for looking up general specs. What is the max psi for this pump? is it really rated what he said? How old is it? Is it possible to convert it to a two stage. Thanks for any info.
Pump Model 216-39
721353L
size 3x2.5
It is a twin cyl but single stage, tank is about 60gal. horiz. The previous owner said it is rated at 10cfm @ 125psi. Pressurized oiling system had 50psi oil pressure.
The motor is not original, it was pirated from a old barn cleaner he said.
Century electric
2 h/p, 230V, ph 1, 14.1 Amp, rpm 1725
frame 184, type CS, service factor 1.00
"farm rated motor"

Thanks that helped out a lot.
I went and took some photos. It has an elaborate mercury switch pressure monitoring system and power shut off switches. Wired it up tonight and it runs sweet, and quiet. Only issue I found was the mercury switch box must be mounted at a slight angle for it to be accurate.
I believe the tank to be an old #100 propane tank. It is 5' long by about 18" in dia. Concave on one end and convex on the other.
