Re: Restoring a Willys CJ3B
All jeeps are worth restoring
There is some modification done to this Jeep from the windshield onwards for adding the doors. If you can get rid of the doors , restore the original windshield and front portion of the body tub, the rest of it can be done later - it never really ends.
The engine and gearbox can be swapped with that of Bolero, there are many Jeep specialists in every city, I`m sure you can find something from the old XD3P to many DI engines from Mahindra that would fit with certain modifications. I have seen recently most of them being fitted with Mahindra DI engines and 4SP gearboxes, I guess that is what is available. If its me, I would retain the petrol engine if parts are available.
