GM bumper jack...

I have a GM bumper jack, given to me by a friend, and I haven't the first clue how to ID it. Did a search and can't really figure out what to look for on what part to ID it as what division or what year. the base is rusty, and I don't see any markings on the ratcheting assembly.
Didn't the General use these things from the sixties up through the eighties?

Please forgive my ignorance, I'm not very bright...

Re: GM bumper jack...

a picture can tell a 1000 words. a mopar jack or a ford jack could look like a GM jack too. if that helps

Re: GM bumper jack...

Okay, thanks. I'll check.
Is it just the date, or is there something indicating what division? Or were they all just GM?
