GPA hand bilge pump color ?

Post by amphibian » Sat Jun 27, 2020 2:34 am

Was the hand bilge pump painted OD,or was it clean brass.And the rubber hoses,anyone know how long they were?
Finding the correct place to store equipment on the vehicle is providing to be difficult,as there is a lot of gear that came with them.

Hello,

I have one that is painted in original dark olive drab.
No hoses, but it appears to be in original condition.

I will post some pictures later once I can find it in my jeep barn.


Best Regards,
Ray

Hello,


I found the hand pump and will post a bunch of pictures :D :D :D
I just wish I could have been lucky enough to have bought a local GPA that we watched for years, outside, unrestored, with blue USA numbers on it ,not for sale,not for sale, that a few years ago did sell 1 day before we went back to ask again. We did that every year since we were kids. Sold for $500, what a bust !!
A local collector bought it , and then resold it to a Texas Jeep parts dealer.
I would have so loved to have it here, and I have never seen another one in the wild, except 2 unrestored ones that a late collector had at his hunting camp in a shed, but he passed away some time ago.

Well, anyhow .... here are the pictures I hope they help out :D :D :D
