Original CJ-3B Factory Artwork


Jim Marski of Colorado recently uncovered a huge collection of original factory illustrations for Willys publications, including 79 artboards used in the CJ-3B Owner's Manual, Service Manual and Parts List. These boards are one-of-a-kind original factory art, primarily ink drawings which were photographed for use in the manuals. The CJ-3B boards range from 7x10 inches to 21x26-1/2 inches in size. The seven photos on this page show the complete collection. One familiar drawing that's not in the collection is the CJ-3B Radiator Guard.

Jim says, "Some of the neater items included are the illustrations of the rear drum pulley and drive, PTO, power plant (engine/trans/transfer case), vehicle lube chart, directional signal kit, engine number location, dual taillight kit and seat construction. A few pieces are for export in Spanish or French."

Jim recently sold the CJ-3B items, as well as the collections of CJ-2A and CJ-3A-related material, but may still have items available related to other Jeep models.
