Here is the beginning of my CJ3A restauration. The jeep is a CJ3A from 1953. Serial number is 37684 (without any prefixes) and engine number is 3J130583.

The engines comes from the belgian army and is therefore not the original one.

I'm willing to make a complete body off restauration and want the jeep as original as possible. So there's a lot to do.

I'll need help!!!!!

Thanks in advance

That is really neat to see an export version of a CJ-3A.  Good luck!  I am assuming these vehicles are very uncommon to find in western Europe but yours looks mostly complete so I guess you should not have too many issues locating replacement parts.

Well, it's super easy to find replacement parts for MB and GPWs. CJ3A are a bit more difficult. We had a lot of those jeep in Belgium, but sadly people are turning them into WW2 jeeps instead of keeping their original look.

Below pictures of my father in his CJ3A during military service in the 60ties.
