This is a vintage collectable Army style CJ3 BJ10 Jeep with a hurricane engine and only 27696 miles , it is extremely Rare to see this vehicle in the UK , This vehicle is also Tax and MOT Exempt.

It was first registered in Japan in 1960 but we believe it is a 1953-1954 vehicle going from the chassis identification

The CJ-3B was produced almost unchanged by Willys Motors and Kaiser Jeep for nearly fifteen years. But in cases where the original serial number is lost, or someone is trying to determine if a part is correct for a particular Jeep, there are some clues to determine at least the approximate year of production. This page covers the interior of the Jeep, and a future page will detail mechanical and exterior body changes.
Half of the Jeeps currently registered in the CJ-3B Serial Number and Engine Number List are 1953-54 models, built prior to the debut of the CJ-5. The lack of reliable figures from the 1960s makes it difficult to estimate total production, but certainly many of the CJ-3Bs surviving in North America are from the first few years of its production. They are usually easily identified by the presence of five separate gauges on the dashboard, similar to earlier Jeep models.

The L-shaped parking brake handle is consistent with this period or with the late 1950s. Some handles were mounted below the dash rather than through it -- I am unsure exactly when this was done. Brake and clutch pedals throughout the 1950s were painted metal.

The driver's seat was mounted to the floor of the Jeep.

The starter switch was also floor-mounted, separate from the keyed on/ off ignition switch. According to the 1965 Service Manual, the floor-mount switch was used until the five gauges were replaced.

Perhaps the most obvious change during the history of the CJ-3B was the introduction of the new instrument cluster (30K GIF), shortly after it appeared in the new CJ-5 model. The five gauges which were essentially the same as had been found in all earlier CJ's, were replaced by a speedometer with integral fuel and temperature gauges, and warning lights for amps and oil pressure, early in the 1957 model year.

Willys documents suggest this began with VIN 57348 34452, but owner Tom McAfee has reported the cluster is installed on his CJ-3B 57348 35422. The new- and old-style dashes may have been interspersed on the assembly line for a while. The first 3B's that had the cluster had the King Seeley version with a silver center and the word "Willys". Apparently about a year later it was replaced by the plain black Stewart-Warner cluster.

Another feature adopted from the CJ-5 was the driver's seat mounted to the side of the body rather than the floor pan. The seats were also now fully upholstered.
