My Love CJ-3B JEEP
by SANDEEP KUMAR
I'm in love with this vehicle since 1973 when I was 3 years of age.
My Papa and Fufaji(Papa's sister's Husband)used to travel in a Jeep CJ-3B. On sides of the bonnet and on the front-grill the word \V|LLYS...or WILLYS was inscribed.
Whenever my chance to get in I was always there on driver's seat making sounds just similar to the petrol-engine JEEP or WILLYS. At the age of 42yrs I can still try that.
It was a faded-sky colour with a black hood, black rims and under-body. They sold it around 1980-81 but since then I was always thinking about when I will get a chance to buy a four-wheel GAADEE(Indian word for vehicle). Definitely and surely it must be CJ-3B.
Luckily I got this chance in 2006(Sept.) I bought this Jeep and renovated it. It cost me Indian Rupees One Lakh Twenty Five Thousands(1,25,000)
Details of My JEEP--Ch.No.-203573 En.No.-72010 Reg.No.-DL4C--B9628.
Now can anybody else tell me the original year of production/Manufacture with Model CJ? (Editor: Please leave responses in the comment section below
