The Toledo Fire Museum recently received and now has on display a rare 1969 Willy’s Fire Jeep from the City of Rossford Fire Department.
The Jeep was made only one block from the museum and purchased by the Libby-Owens-Ford Glass Co. in Rossford. After serving a number of years as a utility fire vehicle at the plant, it was given to the Rossford Fire Department. The Willy’s was fondly taken care of by Rossford Fire Department Explorers Group. Research of the vehicle showed only a few of these were made and one other is on exhibition at the Jeep Museum in Detroit.
