Anyone know how CJ jeeps got to Thailand?

Hi friends,

Hoping an aficionado can help me with the history of how CJ jeeps got to Thailand.

I have a 1968 CJ-6. It is a right-hand drive. Seems like it started out life that way. I bought it in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand. Says Kaiser on the plate under the hood.

I thought maybe it was a base or MP jeep when the US was in Thailand during the Vietnam war.

But that's just a wild guess.

Any help or information would be great, thank you!

It could be a 60s era Nissan Patrol (look kinda like Scout) with a custom Jeep body if it has Nissan guts in it. But like in the US, anything is possible when custom building.
Like the door. Looks very yj but they still left the hump in the door opening (on the tub) like a cj6 but extended the opening on the tub and cut the door to match.
Hey there is a company that makes body kits. Complete metal bodies of old Jeeps, rovers, land cruisers, and they fit JK and JKU frames. Better get under there and check!:D
Could be a Sanyyong
