About

Willys-Overland rose to fame for their production of military Jeeps (MBs) during the mid 20th Century. After World War II, Willys-Overland introduced the CJ line as a civilian “all-purpose” vehicle. The CJ-3B was introduced in 1953 as a transitional model between the civilian CJ and the military M38-A1. During the 1953 production year, the Kaiser-Frazer Corporation purchased Willys-Overland, and renamed the company to Willys Motor Company.

 

The CJ-3B was the first model from Willy’s to introduce the new F4-134 Hurricane inline-4 piston engine. The original  Willys Go Devil straight-4 powered nearly all military vehicles during WWII. But to get more power from the engine, the induction system was changed from the Go-Devil’s side-valve configuration to an inlet-over-exhaust configuration, or “F-Head”. This increased the compression ratio by adding larger valves and a smaller combustion chamber. The compression ratio rose from 6.5:1 in the Go-Devil engine to a 7.5:1 in the Hurricane engine.

 

Willys added a higher grille and hood to clear the larger Hurricane engine. This vehicle also includes a Dayton 5W658 12VDC electric winch and is rust free!
