Throwback Thursday – WWII Willys JEEP Air Pump

Willys Jeep Air Pump from World War 2

Willys Jeep Air Pump from World War 2

One person’s broken air pump isĀ another person’s piece of history. Husband tried the pump and it didn’t work and put it in the recycling bin. I saw the color and the ‘US ORD’ on the base and may have done a little dumpster diving. A quick Google told me we had a non-working 1942 Willys Jeep air pump from World War II. Willys were produced as a light utility military vehicle between 1941 and 1945. The word ‘Jeep’ appears to be a slurring of ‘GP’ standing for ‘Government Purpose’ or ‘General Purpose’.
