The images below are scans of paint chip sheets for Willys vehicles from 1959 to 1965. They are an approximation of the colors used by Willys, and should not be considered a replacement for actual paint chips. Note that it is not always clear which of the colors were used by Willys on the CJ-3B model in particular years. Elsewhere on the web, see chips for most years at AutoColorLibrary.com.

Black bolt-on parts: Normally the windshield and its pivot brackets were gloss black. Footman loops were normally all black except the one at the top center of the windshield frame, which is whatever color the windshield frame is painted (sometimes body color but normally black). Wheels were also sometimes body color but normally white or black.

Steering column, brake and clutch pedals, and engine were normally black. Fan shrouds, seat frames and undercarriage were black or apparently sometimes olive drab. The side steps are normally the same as the body and underbody. One gallon of paint is usually enough for painting the body inside and out.
