Just to show it off: '57 CJ-3B

It's been in the family since 1964. Still drives like a champ and even though it's aged, I think it looks great. Enjoy.

that is just AWESOME!

killer patina, great stance... whats not to like? (though personally, I'd prefer the wheels done in white)

I've always wanted a 3B, but never managed to get my hands on one yet.

So did you just pick this one up, or has it been in your family the entire time?

Let's see some more pics, an what's you plans for it?

I agree w/ Hoss that it has great patina. Never would I consider repainting this one. Even if it is an old re-spray job, I'd leave it simply for the patina.

Been in the fam ever since the 60's, SKT. It was a wedding anniversary present to my aunt. I'm about the only one who drives it now but my aunt still starts it up every day. At the moment I have no cosmetic plans for it. It's stock and has been well maintained and cared for and I plan to enjoy it as it is until the CJ tells me otherwise!
