The CJ-3B replaced the CJ-3A in 1953, the same year Willys was
sold to Kaiser. It introduced a higher grille and hood to clear the
new Willys Hurricane engine. The CJ-3B was produced until 1968
with a total of 155,494 produced, although the design was licensed
to a number of international manufacturers, including Mitsubishi of
Japan and Mahindra of India. Mitsubishi ceased production of
vehicles derived from the CJ-3B design in 1998, but Mahindra
continues to produce Jeeps today.
