Development of the CJ3B

Willys-Overland introduced the Universal Jeep CJ3B in 1953, seven years after the end of WWII and after already producing almost 360,000 civilian Jeeps.


One limitation both of the wartime Jeeps and the postwar models CJ2A and CJ3A was the limited horsepower of the “Go-Devil” engine. The new F-head “Hurricane” engine, which Willys began placing in larger vehicles in 1949, had its intake valves in the head instead of the engine block, allowing them to be larger. The first civilian Universal Jeep big enough for the Hurricane was the new "high-hood" CJ3B.


Willys introduced the CJ3B as a transitional model between the CJ3A and the forthcoming CJ5, the civilian answer to the M38A1. The CJ3B had both flat front fenders and a higher-profile hood to accommodate the F-head Hurricane engine, offering greater torque and horsepower than the 3A.


Jeep models based on the CJ3B, including longer wheelbase versions, were built by many licensed firms around the world, including Mahindra and Mahindra in India.
