    Did Willys ever put a venting windshield on a CJ3B. Fellow I work with is working on a 2A and it had this on it.
    He bought a new tub kit with a windshield frame. It is in rough shape. Not sure if I can make anything out of it or not.

    I would add that there was similar system on our Citroen traction avant, 1952.
    When hot you could open a bit the windshield by turning a central screw.
    And if rain rapidly c!ose it ! It comes to my memory...

    Definitely did. There is some info the CJ3B page. I have my eye on one near me, I will probably have to buy the complete jeep (rough) to get it.

    There was def a 3b venting windshield. It was factory I've seen one. Agreed thst is a 2a windshield though. The 3b venting windshield was similar to the 5.

    I think DeBellas Jeep might still have NOS CJ3b/606 venting windshields.
    The CJ2a’s had square corners on the top of the frame, the CJ3 variants had rounded top corners.
    Lots of 2a’s have been retrofit with the 3b frames.
