Mitsubishi willys jeep

I live in the UK and have just bought my first Jeep.
It is a mitsubishi willys style jeep. I was told it was a J59. It is 1990cc petrol, manual. I wondered if there was anyone out there who had any info on these vehicles?

I see at least 10 of those a day here in Okinawa. I'll see if one of the locals that works in my office (and speaks pretty decent English) can get me some info on them. Pretty sure I read a while back that Willy's licensed the tech specs and plans to Mitsubishi back in the mid 50's so that they could produce it for use in Asia.

Yup! RH drive.
Thankfully they drive on the correct side of the roads in Japan.
