This "high-hood" Jeep was essentially a CJ-3A with the taller F-head engine fitted and a "hood-ectomy" to give clearance. Though it may have been intended as an interim model prior to the intro of the CJ-5, it stayed in production well into the sixties as a shorter-wheelbase option. With only a few thousand a year built, many of them exported, there are not many CJ-3Bs around. A total of 155,494 were assembled in the U.S. Strangely enough, they were still being built under licence in India under the Mahindra nameplate in the 2000s. This restored 1961 CJ-3B belongs to Derek Redmond of Kingston, Ontario. (Derek Redmond)
